A Guest Post: Andi @ The Hollie Rogue

Happy Tuesday!

I am SO excited to have my RL friend Andi from The Hollie Rogue on the blog today.  

Since I’m only A LITTLE BIT (like a super LITTLE bit!) crafty I’m SUPER happy she offered to share a fun tutorial with you all. 


Hi friends!  I'm Andi and have the privilege of counting Kelly as a real-life friend.  However sweet and kind you think she is from her online presence--you're right plus MORE!  I blog at The Hollie Rogue and also have an etsy shop with my two sisters featuring hand-embroidered pendants and other vintage-inspired jewelry.


I have two little kids, 3 and 18 months, and love to do quick, easy, fairly-mess-free crafts with them, so today, i'd love to share with you this Coffee Filter Flowers project using materials you ALREADY have in your pantry.

1.  coffee filters
2.  food coloring (The Wilson frosting colors worked much better than regular food coloring)
3.  tape
4.  glasses of water


1.  Fold filters (I actually kept 2-3 together so that the coloring goes a little faster.)


2.  Dip and allow to dry.


3.  Fold colored filters and pinch at base.  Tape to secure.


4.  Decorate with them as desired.  I added them to artificial stems I already had and put in a vase, or you could string together as garland, etc.


Thank you so much for sharing this FUN and EASY craft today girl!  This is just the kind of thing i can handle!!
