OMG!!! I'm super happy how my coffee filter wreath turned out and it was so easy to make!!!
Years ago I saw this type of wreath on Priscilla's blog and I just fell in love with it! Yes … years ago😁
I watched Priscilla's YouTube video and several other tutorials on different blogs on how-to make this filter.
After watching all of these tutorials and learned from them, I borrowed an idea here and there and put my own twist to make it work for me. For example, Priscilla uses hot glue to attached the filters to the straw wreath. I avoid as much as I can using the hot glue gun … too many painful burns … ouch!
So I used straight pins instead. The other thing I did was start at the top of the wreath (all around) pinning the filters first. Then I did the bottom side and inside of the wreath. I added more folded filters where I saw gaps and made sure the straw wreath was not visible.
Lastly, I just added a ribbon and bow made to hang. I plan on changing the ribbon according to the holidays/seasons. I actually want to use wider ribbon.
It was super thrifty to make this wreath, and I had been collecting the supplies for a while: straw wreath for $2 from the thrift store (brand new), 3 packages of coffee filters from the Dollar Tree, the ribbon also from Dollar tree, and straight pins from my stash (mostly found at estate sales, thrift stores, … )
