DIY Coffee Filter Wreath

February 21, 2018

 

 

If you don’t know how to make a coffee filter wreath, then you are missing out on a cheap, stunning décor for your house. I have several around my house and just love how they look! The main coffee filter wreath in my home is a true beauty and I seriously get compliments all the time on it. Other smaller ones I have in my house are accents for my decoration designs. Now, my favorite part about this project is that its CHEAP. Like, under $10, cheap! And smaller accent wreaths can be made for under $2!!! Also, this project does NOT take a lot of artistic ability, it’s quite simple. And lastly, it’s quick to do. I would highly recommend this for a “Girl’s night in,” a “Craft night,” or to sell for a fundraiser.

 

 

 

 

Statement Coffee Filter Wreath

Estimate Cost - $9

 

Supplies Needed:

 

Foam Wreath (I usually buy this with a 40 – 50 % off coupon at Hobby Lobby, Joann's, or Michael’s)

2 Coffee Filter Bags

Sharp Pencil or Pen

Hot Glue Gun - with glue 😊

 

Directions:

  1. Heat your glue gun, put down paper bags or newspapers in case the glue drips.

  2. Place the pencils or pen inside the filter and pull it tight to make a tip.

  3. Put hot glue on the tip.

  4. Glue the coffee filter into the wreath by poking a hole with the tip of the filter into the wreath. Hold each coffee filter in the wreath a few seconds till almost dry.

  5. Continue to glue coffee filters until you reach the desire look you want.

 

 Pen/pencil inside filter, sharp side down to make the hole in the foam wreath.

 

 Put the hot glue on the tip of the coffee filter with the pen/pencil inside.

 

 

 

 

Note: I like to glue the coffee filters in a circle around the wreath by eyeing it. I start from the outside and work my way in. Depending on the size of the wreath you choose, it can take 3 rows or 6 or more. When you are done with the rows, eye where you want to fill it in more. Never can have too many coffee filters in the wreath, but it will definitely show if you have to little.

 

Accent Coffee Filter Wreath

Estimated Cost - $2 (Great to sell for Fundraisers!)

 

Supplies Needed:

 

Paper Plate

1 Coffee Filter Bags

Sharp Pencil or Pen

Hot Glue Gun 

 

Directions:

  1. Cut the paper plate’s center out, leaving only the rim.

  2. Heat your glue gun, put down paper bags or newspapers in case the glue drips.

  3. Place the pencils or pen inside the filter and pull it tight to make a tip.

  4. Put hot glue on the tip.

  5. Glue the coffee filter on the paper, holding into place till it’s COMPLETELY dry.

  6. Continue to glue coffee filters in until you reach the desire look you want.

Cut the paper plate as shown above, keeping the rim in the upright position.

 

 

Once you do your first coffee filter wreath you will be hooked! They always come out beautiful whether you are a detailed person or not. The wreath idea can be done so many ways--dyed, in patterns, painted, added accents, the list is endless. But I like the traditional white hung on a statement wreath holder.

 

Hope these instructions were simple and easy to follow. If you have any questions, let me know. Add a picture of the creation you created, I would love to see your wreath design!

 

With Love,

Middle Sister
