First I bought a pack of white coffee filters and an individual pack of blue fabric dye. I filled my kitchen sink with water, added the blue dye, and then put in 50 (out of 100) coffee filters.
I was now ready to start making my wreath but realized a small problem. By soaking and drying the coffee filters, I had smoothed out the "ruffly" edges. Since the plain white ones hadn't been soaked and dried, they were still ruffly. So, I stopped, filled the sink with warm water, and soaked the plain white ones in plain warm water. After these had dried, I was ready to go.
We love it!!! It is now hanging on my front door for the duration of March madness. Go big blue!
P.S. Joey and I's alma mater, Morehead State University, won their tournament, the OVC, to get into the NCAA tournament, too. So we'll be rooting for both of them.
