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
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

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    I love stock market shares

    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!
