Valentine Coffee Filter Wreath

So I don't know what my problem is but I am creating like crazy this Valentines.. 
maybe it's the new year, I must feel refreshed!!!

I know coffee filter wreaths have been all the rage lately, so I had to make one (4) and  put my own spin on it!

Here is a REALLY EASY COFFEE FILTER TUTORIAL

I used this shimmer mist to color the filters pink, you can buy it at any craft or scrapbook store.
I set a few down in a box and gave each filter 2 quick spritz
They Dry REALLY fast
(Careful, this stuff stains!)
Coffee filters and wreath form were purchased at the dollar store
 1. After the pink ones dry, I layer them white, pink, white, pink
2.Pinch and twist the bottom till you get the top to look how you want it.
3. Simply staple it! Holds it together so you can make a whole bunch
4. Ready to glue them on!
 Make sure  you tie some ribbon or lace on your wreath first so you can have something to hang it with.
Then start gluing them on, I made all white ones too, so my wreath wasn't all pink, but you do what makes you happy!
Just keep adding more to the wreath till it's full and how you like it.
I embellished with pearls, ribbon and paper doilies.
So easy, cheap, and beautiful!

What a very pretty wreath, the coffee filters give it a very soft textured look. Love the pink color and never heard of shimmer mist before. Very pretty!
