Patriotic Garland

I MADE THIS PATRIOTIC GARLAND~ I could call it my~ Patriotic Coffee Filter Flower Garland~ Yes’ a  mouth full. 😉

here are all the supplies you will need.
Red mesh, burlap, coffee filters, buttons, 4th of July scrap paper, paper dollies, hot glue gun, navy blue acrylic paint, round small sponge brush, and grow grain ribbon.

On some of the paper dollies I used red acrylic paint to paint the outer edges for more color.

Here is the ribbon that was glued to the back of the coffee filter flowers. I tied knots in between each flower.

then I used hot glue and glued the grow grain ribbon to the back of the filter flowers.

here are the coffee filters all tipped in acrylic paint. They needed more color and it added more dimension and texture to the look.

and HERE it is all glued and layered. The 4th Scrappaper was covered in fireworks, so I cut them all out and used them too.

and I draped it around my red hutch.
