What You Will Need:
Red Food Coloring
Hot Glue Gun
Ribbon or String for hanging
Dye the filters. I used a bowl and added a few drops of food coloring mixed with various amounts of water depending on how pink/red I wanted the filters. Less water with more drops of food coloring will make the filters more red, or if you want pink do more water and less food coloring drops.
**If you don't want your hands stained red I suggest wearing gloves!**
Dry the filters, I stuck them out on my patio and let them dry for many hours.
*I didn't put any wax paper down and probably should have since the wet filters got some red dye on the cement*
Draw a heart (or whatever shape you'd like) onto cardboard and cut it out.
I painted the heart red so if my filters didn't cover completely it wasn't brown showing through.
Make sure your glue gun is plugged in and you have all your filters (that need to be 100% dry!), scissors and cardboard and start assembling!
Once you have filled the cardboard and you are satisfied with your final product, add some ribbon to the back to hang it on your door.
Now hang/display where ever you like!
My ombre isn't prefect but I love the color variation. This was a fun, fairly quick and simple project. Plus it adds a little color to the plain and boring tower hallway!
Until Next Time,
