      Hi, Barb. I don't know how to do what you're talking about but I have seen pictures of this online and in magazines. Maybe do a search of Hometalk for something similar or the Web in general. I hope you find what you're looking for and good luck with your project.

    @Jyn M They did have a definite coffee aroma for about a week but that has dissipated and now they have just a tinge of the lingering scent.
