Create a Colorful Wreath from Coffee Filters

‘Tis the season for wreath making, so why not get a little creative and use some recycled materials? Not only is this wreath a fun way for the kids to get involved with decorating, but I was able to make it for under $5! Does it really get better than that?

What You Need:

How to Make It

Follow these instructions to create coffee filter flowers. In all honesty, if I had a do-over, I would make my coffee filters look more like the flowers in the post. The colors of this wreath are kind of in-your-face, and I think a subtle pink would be really pretty.

I used about 23 flowers, some thick and some thin. You will have a fuller wreath if you use about 8 filters per flower.

Instead of taping your flower to a dowel, wrap the wire around your frame. Move the flowers around to get your desired look before really securing the wire. Once all of the flowers are attached, fluff the coffee filters, and move everything around until you get the look you’re going for. You can protect the back by gluing on some felt or fabric, but it’s not necessary.
