I don’t know what it is about wreaths, but they make me so HAPPY!!! I just love how much they change a space.
Today I’m going to show you how to make a coffee filter wreath. They are really easy and cheap, WIN-WIN in my book! You only need a few things. Coffee filters, a Styrofoam wreath form and straight pins. I had the wreath form laying around (I may have not been as forth coming about my love for wreaths….it’s a small obsession). You can pick the wreath form up at any craft store or big box store like Walmart or Amazon has them for $4.84 here. I picked up the coffee filters while I was at Walmart, I got two bags of the small white filters in a 200 pack for $1.70 each; I used one and half bags. Amazon has them for $1.10 here. I would have gotten the natural brown ones but Walmart didn’t have them, I like the color. Amazon has them right here. This craft cost me a whopping $3.40.
First, you take the coffee filter and fold it into thirds, stick in a straight pin and pin it to your form.
Then you repeat that process about 350 times……It sounds like a lot but it goes pretty fast.
I did the front of the wreath first so I could hold onto the sides while I worked my way out.
Here is the finished product on my pantry door.
I had a natural brown coffee filter wreath on this door for about 5 years. It is old and ready to be replaced but it gives you an idea of how your wreath will hold up and what the brown looks like. I also used the bigger coffee filters.
