New Year's Eve Coffee Filter Bunting

Craftiments:  Coffee Filter Bunting


The girls were bored yesterday afternoon, so I pulled out a stack of coffee filters and tempera paints, and let them play.  We usually make flowers or cut snowflakes out of painted coffee filters.  Instead I decided to use their colorful creations to make a last minute New Year's Eve bunting.

Craftiments:  Painting coffee filters with watered down tempera paints

I diluted the tempera paint about 1:1 with water.  To speed drying, I put the filters on a sheet of aluminum foil in a warm oven.  To make the bunting, I folded each coffee filter in half and cut fringe along the curved edge with scissors.  Then I sandwiched a length of button thread in the fold and glued the two halves of the coffee filter around it.
