How to Make a Festive Coffee Filter Wreath

Free Christmas Wreath  Project Idea:

How to Make a Festive Coffee Filter Wreath

 
You will Need:
 
200 coffee filters in white or tan color
1 12" or 14" wreath either styro-foam or straw
ribbon
hot glue gun
 
This understated wreath is easy (no-sewing!) and inexpensive to make. It is a beautiful decoration for the holiday season. Depending on how you dress it up, you can make autumn and spring wreaths, too.

I like the coffee filters with the seam best for this project. If you get the plan round coffee filters fold the filter in half and then in half again.

I will be showing you the wreath made from a Styro-foam wreath base, however, I like the results from the straw wreaths which work best and look the fullest and roundest when finished.

If you get the coffee filters with the seam as shown, follow our steps below.

Fold filter so that the seam is down the middle as shown.
Fold the bottom of the filter near the point about 1.5" up as shown.
Hot glue a small section of the top of the wreath and the bottom of the coffee filter where the fold is. Begin adding the filter with the seams all facing the same way.

I folded and prepared about 5 coffee filters at a time and then added them to the wreath. Make sure they are nice and close together.

Continue this process until the top of the wreath is almost done. Add a wire or rope or ribbon for a hanger BEFORE you put the last couple of coffee filters on the top.
Once you are done the top of the wreath do the same to the outer side of the wreath.

Add a pretty bow, pieces of natural greenery, or pretty antique Christmas balls to the wreath and hang your beautiful coffee filter wreath!

This is a picture of the finished product. The light brown coloring of the coffee filter pairs perfectly wit the rustic natural wood window edges. However, feel free to spray paint and add decorative elements to your wreath to suit your design style!
