Coffee Filter Cabbages

I absolutely love shopping at Anthropologie. It's one of my favorite places to go for decorating, DIY and craft inspiration. When I saw the local store's spring window, brimming with handmade vegetables, I knew i had to DIY my own for spring.
I'm just blown away by how realistic these cabbages look; you'd never guess they're made using hand-dyed coffee filters, newspapers, tape, hot glue and paraffin wax.
My crafty friend and I had fun using these in our spring decorating -- and we even made a that walks you step-by-step through the process of making the coffee filter cabbages. You'll find that by clicking on the link to my blog.
We also have full instructions and templates for making the cabbage leaves.
