Coffee Filters are one of those everyday items that can be turned, with just a little creativity, into amazing things. My coffee making habits don’t even use filters but you can be sure that I keep a big pile of traditional, basket style filters around the house, just for crafts! Here are a few of my favorite coffee filter crafts to get your creative juices flowing!

Paper Hydrangea Tutorial - One Young Love

Looking at these pretty flowers, you’d never guess that they are made primarily from  coffee filters! I’m totally tempted to whip up a few of these for my living room, especially since it’s been pretty devoid of real flowers this winter!

Another example of coffee filter flowers, this wreath is so beautiful, I had to look twice (ok, three times) to make sure it really was made of coffee filters. I especially love their use of season neutral colors here, you really could display this year round, but it would be super easy to customize to whatever colors you want!
