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
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.
- shape the coffee filters by pinching and twisting the center to create a “flower”
- once you have several done, glue them to your wreath form
- keep repeating step 1 and 2 until you complete covering the form
- 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.
