Coffee Filter Wreath

Coffee filter wreaths have been really popular lately, and I love how they look.  Who knew that a coffee filter could turn into something so beautiful.  I used them a lot in my early childhood classrooms, but never thought of using them for home decor!  Check back in the next week or so for another tutorial using coffee filters. 
I decided to use pins instead of hot glue so that I could reuse the wreath for another project.  You know me, I love to save money and reuse things!

Stack of Coffee Filters (100 or under should be enough)

Start by crunching up the bottom of your coffee filter and sticking the pin through it.  
 Next, push the pin into the wreath.  Note that I didn't take the plastic off of the wreath.
Continue doing this process until your wreath is filled with the coffee filters.  Lift the wreath up every so often to check for holes that need to be filled.

 Once your wreath is completely covered by coffee filters, take your ribbon and pin it in place on the back of the wreath.  

I am not sure how long this would last on a front door, but it would definitely make a statement on the door.  I am hanging mine in the dining room.  I'll post a picture once I get the area done.

Make sure to check out all of my other tutorials here, and follow me onTwitter and Facebook!

  2. That looks so fun! Thanks for sharing it!

  3. Thank you for inspiring me! I made a wreath in this style using paper napkins. All layers seperated and each 'folded' like tulips. Pinned them with a gluegun. I wouldn't have made this if I hadn't seen the picture of your lovely wreath!
    Thank you for sharing!
