tye-dye coffee filter Easter Eggs

This Morning on The Crafty Crow there was this very cool craft to make filters have a tye-dye effect and then trim into Easter Eggs, thoguht this would be so pretty in the windows, so we decided to do them.

Everyone colored a bunch of filters. Shawn also colored himself.:-)

since I did not have a spray bottle- and we really wanted to make these- we instead used paint brushes and dripped on the water and watched the colors blend together some very cool tye-dye effects going on.

the finished products drying on some foil so as not to leak and stain the counters.

when these are done drying I will trim them into a bit more of an oval/egg shape and hang them in our dinning room window for some pretty stained glass effect.
