I have finally put away the last of my snowmen. No, spring hasn’t ended yet, this is just me, tried of snow and hoping with every ounce of spring in me that the snow will end. And let’s just ignore the fresh coating out there this morning.
Here is a simple, super cheap, especially if you are a coffee drinker, craft to brighten up your home.
Coffee Filter Sun Catchers. These can also be cut into an egg shape for Easter, a heart for Valentine’s Day or even a flower.
Flatten a coffee filter. Color with markers. We used old markers that are drying up. You don’t need every little space colored!
There are a few different ways that you can blend the colors together. A spray bottle on mist. Or as we used, a dropper. My one tip would be to make sure you have something under it. I used a dishtowel. Some thing to soak up the water (and color).
As you can see, once you’ve added water any and all of the water uncolored spots are gone.
These are a beautiful simple way to brighten up a room. A child of any age can do this. There is no set up required, and basically no clean up, just throw the towel in the hamper.
