How to Make a Coffee Filter Wreath

 

Post by Michelle {Little Miss Momma’s Momma}

Ashers has been begging me to make her one of these for so long, and now she has one.
You may remember the lampshade I made her a few days ago, well I had lots of coffee filters left over so I decided to make her a fun wreath to match.  I’ve seen a bunch of these wreaths on pinterest, and I knew it would be fairly simple to make.

It’s so easy. This is all you need:
Styrofoam wreath (white)- Michael’s 12.99
glue gun and glue sticks
coffee filters, 2 packages Dollar tree
thick Sharpie with rounded tip (to avoid burns and help stick/push into the styrofoam)

1.  place the tip of the sharpie at the center of a coffee filter
2. gently wrap one coffee filter around the sharpie
3.  apply hot glue to the tip of the coffee filter
4.  holding the sharpie firmly, place the glued tip of the coffee filter into the styrofoam, hold for 3 seconds then remove the sharpie
5.  Repeat 300-375 more times
TIPS:
Place the filters as close together as possible
You may want to purchase special styrofoam hot glue. I used regular hot glue though.
Use a white styrofoam wreath so that it doesn’t show through.
Try not to put the filters to close to the edge of the inside circle of the wreath or it will not sit flush against the door.
I added a white ribbon to the back for easy hanging, if you don’t want a ribbon you can just attach the styrofoam directly to a nail.

 Happy Crafting,

LMM’s Momma-Michelle

  1. Really cute!! I’ll have to try that for the Shabby Chic spare bedroom I have. Maybe hang it on the inside of the door. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Oh my goodness, I LOVE IT. That’s seriously genius to use to sharpie with the circle thing at the top.

    Also, confession time.
    You’re my bloggy girl crush. There. Now it’s out in the open. I told my husband, and he said it’s okay that I want to BE you, because you make great things and you’re an awesome writer. How’s that for a stamp of approval?

  12. I’m so excited to make this!!!! I bought the filters today and will get the styrofoam wreath tomorrow! It’s so pretty! I love it!! Thanks for the idea and how-to!

  13. Just realized this post was written by LMM’s Momma. Woops. I suppose I could develop a little bloggy crush on you, too. Only time will tell :)

  14. Hm I posted but it didn’t show up…maybe my comment was sent to the spam folder lol

    I love this project! I love how it turned out and it inspired me to think of a fun Halloween project! Dyeing the coffee filtes orange and black …it could look super cool I think!

    beautiful! so pretty! :)

    Love Simple Green

  16. Too pretty!

  17. I love this! Is it totally weird that i want to run to the store right now to get the supplies to make this. Hi my name is Amanda and I am a craft addict…..

  18. So pretty! I really want to try this myself! We are doing 5 Days of Giveaways on our blog this week if you or any of your readers want to stop by!

  19. Such an awesome idea. I tried a variation with patty cases (I have never used a coffee filter here in Australia!) and thick cardboard for the backing. I love how it turned out.

  20. So pretty! Thanks for sharing!

  21. This idea was so beautiful! I wanted to make one but couldn’t find a form at Walmart so I grabbed a couple cones and made candy corns! I linked back to your tutorial. Thanks for the inspiration, it has been a big hit!

  22. I am making mine now! I filled a small spray bottle with water and food coloring and am making a Christmas themed wreath with red and green. The only bad thing is that when they get wet they lose some of the crinkled look that I like but they still look good!

  23. I have featured your awesome wreath on my Countdown to Christmas and have given you credit.

    Great work!

  24. Love this…it’s absolutely gorgeous. Gonna’ try to make one. Love the directions and your tips!! Thank you so much!!

  25. I saw this somewhere a few weeks ago and finally gathered all my supplies and tried it today. Your directions were super easy and it came out great. Thanks for sharing.

  26. I am a wife, mother of 5 and we have a limited budget to say the least. But, Im a thrifty girl and like to dress things up and do what I can to make things nice. I follow your blog and love to get inspired. I got a little emotional looking at your wreath and thinking about all the people that don’t think they have the money to have nice things or make their homes feel warm and inviting. A pack of coffee filter are $1 and foam wreaths are everywhere, too. I feel really proud that there are people, like you, that find and make beauty out of such simple things that everyone can buy and do even on a tight budget. Even if it is one dollar at a time. Love your blog and appreciate your ideas and inspiration.

  27. I love how huge and full this looks! Pinning for future reference; thanks! :)

  28. I would like to make this with a group of children aged 8-11…..is there an alternative to using hot glue?

  29. Thank you so much for the tip of using a magic marker to place the coffee filters evenly. Not as many burns either! Do you trim the wreath so that it is even all around or just let it be?

  30. You must understand how the stock market operates prior to investing in it.
    Supply and demand is how the stock market operates.
    The amount of shares of stocks is what makes up
    the supply. The demand is determined by the amount of shares
    that investors are interested in purchasing. Furthermore, be aware that with
    every shared that is bought, there is a person on the other side
    that sells the share.

    have read it entirely

  33. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually something that I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!

  34. I got this website from my friend who informed me
    about this website and now this time I am visiting this
    website and reading very informative content here.

  35. Hi mates, good article and good urging commented here, I am
    truly enjoying by these.

  36. Thanks for any other informative blog. Where else could I get
    that type of info written in such a perfect approach?
    I’ve a undertaking that I am just now working on, and I have been on the glance out for
    such information.

  37. Everyone loves what you guys are up too. This
    kind of clever work and coverage! Keep up the very good works guys I’ve added you guys to my
    personal blogroll.

  38. Heyy I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience wijth something like this.
    Please let me know if you run intoo anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  39. I was suggested this blog through my cousin. I am now not positive whether this post
    is written by means of him as nobody else recognize such exact about my problem.
    You’re incredible! Thanks!

  40. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could
    definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Superb blog!
