Christmas has been on my mind for a few weeks now. I don't know what it was this year that made me just want to skip over Halloween and Thanksgiving and go straight for Christmas so early! I have tried to put off decorating until at least a somewhat normal time of the year by working on projects a little ahead of time. I have had fun pinning all sorts of inspiration for my Rustic Elegant Christmas. My first project was an Anthropologie inspired Coffee Filter Garland.
Pam Garrison's coffee filter garland that I found on Pinterest!
I tied a knot, cut a slice in the middle of every layer, thread a stack on, and then tied another knot to hold it in a cluster. I made a short stack and then I would double that and make a tall stack just so my garland would have varying size groupings.
And I loved how it turned out! My family is still warming up to the idea that I am decorating with coffee filters! "It doesn't look very Christmas-y".
What do you think? A little too weird? Or do you like a little change up from the traditional Christmas decor?
