Coffee Filter Holiday Decorations
White coffee filters (round, not cone-shaped); scissors; colored markers and a pencil for drawing an outline of your shape; glue; decorations like feathers, glitter, crystals, googly eyes, pom-pons etc.; colored cord, about 6 inches long
Using a pencil, draw the outline of a holiday shape, like a star, dreidel, or tree, about 2 or so inches long, onto a white coffee filter. Cut out and fill in the shape with a colored marker. Coffee filters absorb ink very well, so the color will be especially vibrant. Then, once the ink is dry, decorate by gluing on glitter, crystals, small pom-pons, feathers, ribbon, bits of fabric, etc. etc. Paste a thin, colored cord (silver or gold are good choices), about 6 inches long, into a loop behind the top of the ornament. If you have a Christmas tree, hang from one of the branches, or hang on a door knob to add a festive touch to your home.
