How to make a coffee filter wreath

April 26, 2011

This week, I have been “crafting” with several projects.  Today Im sharing my attempt at a coffee filter wreath.  I have seen these on several blogs & they looked simple to make (my kind of craft). I love how this one turned out. It totally fancies up the vintage window.  

Who knew you could make a wreath out of coffee filters!  How neat.

It took me about 45 minutes to make.  All I purchased for the project was a Styrofoam circular wreath, brown ribbon, glue sticks, and coffee filters (one pack of 100).  The project cost less than $10.

Brown ribbon looks great with the brown coffee filters.

Hang the ribbon first.

Fold the filter in half.

Then fold it in half again.

Then glue the bottom half of the filter and attach it to the back of the filter.

Keep going until you are happy with the fullness. You will need to make multiple layers. I didn’t use the whole pack of filters (maybe 2/3 of them).

Thats it!  So simple.

What projects have your been working on this week?  Link up and show us your glam. I kindly ask, if you are going to link up, please add my blog link button to your post.  There are no rules to linking up.  Go crazy!!  πŸ™‚

    How cute! I think I might have to make one of these…

    Now, funny story, when I first saw your mossy letters I thought they spelled FAT and I thought what?! Is that some sort of snack avoidance technique? Then I looked harder and realized I was a dummy πŸ™‚

    I love this! And it would probably be fun project with the kids. I really wish my husband would let me have anything like this in my house!!! Very cute!

  27. Just found your blog and I love this!! After you do the first outside layer which is glued to the back where do you glue the other layers as you work around toward the center to make sure that they stick out correctly? It does look like the layer or two closest to the middle are glued onto the back middle again. But I’m not sure how to make all the layers in between look right and so pretty like yours. Thanks in advance for your help!
