Gorgeous Ruffly Wreath

While my family watched the Super Bowl, I made another wreath.
Andrea of Velvet Strawberries made one like this last year, and I adored it. I asked her if I could copy her, and she said sure. We had both taken an online class, and it showed us how to make the tea dyed coffee filters. I changed mine up a little bit from hers, but it is the same basic idea.I think the colors are so beautiful. The soft shade of the coffee filters against the bold fuchsia lace is so lovely.
The arrow is so sweet, with the french paper on it. I love the whole thing.
Have a lovely day.

Oh Valerie, Your blog header and sides are just the cutest thing I've seen this season! What a beautiful wreath. I would love to make one of these for a pink bedroom I am working on. Was it difficult to dye the filters? Also, may I have your address again at elizabeth.andrus@yahoo.com I have now mailed out everything and can't imagine that it hasn't turned up yet. I will send you another if I may have your address. I'm so sorry this has hapened. Thanks so much! Elizabeth
