Coffee Filters……They’re Not Just for Coffee Anymore!

Shhh! Don’t tell my husband! I have started hoarding coffee filters (secretly moving them from the kitchen pantry into my craft closet). It is not what you might be thinking – I am not a recovering caffeine-a-holic. I am a confessed craft addict and I have discovered the beauty of coffee filter wreaths.

They are super easy to make – I mean they are easy peasy! Not to mention, they are cheap. You can buy a package of coffee filters for just a little over a dollar. Check out these beauties!Coffee Filter Wreath                              White Coffee Filter Wreath

 

Remember those tissue paper art projects done in elementary school? Putting all of those tissue paper squares on the end of a pencil and securing them onto a picture with Elmer’s glue….the closer together the squares were placed, the better. Basically, making the wreath is the same concept with one huge exception – the end result is pretty enough to hang on a mantel, door, or mirror (unlike the elementary art project that was placed on a refrigerator for a month and then packed away in a keepsake box).

Materials Needed:

Coffee Filters (lots of them)

Styrofoam Wreath Form

Hot Glue Gun

Favorite Movie in the DVD Player

Supplies

Wreath (noun) – A circular band of flowers, foliage, or any ornamental work, for adorning the head or for any decorative purpose.
