Coffee Filter Wreath

Okay, Okay, I know I am the very last person to jump on the bandwagon and make a coffee filter wreath. I made this one over a year ago when I was only a blog wannabe, and my pictures are not the best, but I figured if you really don’t know how to make one, my process will still help.

How To Make A Coffee Filter Wreath

So, here’s what you’ll need to make this wreath:

  • coffee filters (buy these unbleached, natural ones if you want a softer color and not white for your wreath)
  • glue gun
  • hot glue
  • fishing line or ribbon to make a hanger
  • scissors

Brendt at she gave it a go has step by step instructions, so I won’t repeat them in detail.

But I did take some pictures during the process, and since I was a blogger wannabe I thought they may come in handy someday to post.  Well a year later now that I see that everyone has “been there done that” then like I said, I will spare you the exaggerated details.

  1. shape the coffee filters by pinching and twisting the center to create a “flower”
  2. once you have several done, glue them to your wreath form
  3. keep repeating step 1 and 2 until you complete covering the form
  4. create a hanger from your fishing line or ribbon

So fancy, don’t you think? I like them and who can go wrong with a project totaling less than $3 for some coffee filters!

Well, I admit I am late to the game but I can still play, right?

Coffee filter wreath variations

I don’t have pictures to show you, but I have an imagination 😉

You can embellish your wreath for any season:

  • add some artificial poinsettia flowers or some gold glittery stars for Christmas
  • use some food coloring to create pastel “flowers” with your coffee filters
  • buy a tye dye kit and have fun creating a summer wreath
  • my unbleached coffee filter wreath can easily be adorned with some fall colors for the perfect fall decoration.

  1. I made one about a month ago. The family was quite impressed. I used a straw wreath with the plastic left on to eliminate the mess. I also used a highligher to wrap the coffee filter and put hot glue on the end to keep my fingers from burning. I am sure that makes NO sense, but I had fun making it.
