We moved to a 100 year old farm house just last month, so for Christmas this year I decided to go old school. I made this tree garland out of 99 coffee filter packs.

First I folded the filter in half and again two more times till I was left with a little folded triangle. Then I used a needle and strong thread to string all the filters together. After a little fluffing it turned out simple yet elegant. Hope you will enjoy as much as we do.

How very stylish. It looks like a very expensive ruffle all round that tree.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
