Anyone in the mood for a coffee filter wreath tutorial?? This is a pretty easy project and the best part, most of us have two of the three main “ingredients”…a hot glue, coffee filters and a styrofoam form that I needed to buy. Now, it can be slow to start, but once you get into a groove, the time flies and before you know it, you’ll have a full fabulous looking wreath!
Here’s what you’ll need.
A few of these are great too! The kids had a blast crumbling the coffee filters. As pictured, I cut a scalloped edge on mine. As shown above, I thought I might use two colors, but I decided to go with just the brown filters instead. We crumbled ours to give the wreath a more aged look, but this step is optional.
I started with one filter, pinched the center and and made it a twisted point. I hot glued the center each filter to the inner portion of the wreath first, but that was just what worked for me. I chose to start this way, because I wanted to be able to work from back of the wreath and didnt want the crush the filters on the front.
This is what it looked like from the front.
I added a few to the perimeter just enough to cover the majority of the styrofoam.
I flipped it over and added the remaining filters to the front. In case you’re wondering, I did use the entire bag of coffee filters 🙂
At this point, you could add some pretty ribbon and call it a day, or you could add a little something else like wooden letters, some holiday decor, or a big bow perhaps! I chose to add felt flowers. There are tons of tutorials on how to make them. Don’t be intimidated. They were REALLY easy and NOT at all time consuming to make. I think they give the wreath a nice, understated pop!
