Sweet Spring Wreath

        I have heard about coffee filter wreaths on many different blogs so I thought it was time to give it a whirl.  I started and completed the wreath in about an hour.  The only supplies I needed were a pack of coffee filters, a glue and glue gun, scissors and a foam ring.  I also did add some ribbons and butterfly embellishments as well for fun.  The wreath is a great addition to my spring mantel … take a look:

So cute and it was less than $5 to make! Who doesn’t love that? Here’s how to make it:
Start by gathering your supplies and heat up your glue gun

Fold the filters in half and then half again.  Snip the pointed tip off. 
Put a dab of hot
 glue on the just snipped tip and press it onto the wreath.
 Use some presssure and adjust as
 needed.  Be wary of hot glue burns …
I think got burnt at least 8 times!

The wreath is displayed on myspring mantel – I think it looks really pretty and fresh.

I confess to having a ribbon thing…it is like the icing on the cake.
This wreath took one hour, cost less than $5 and looks so nice!
I would definitely try this again, but with colored or dyed filters perhaps.

  1. I put some of those butterfiles on my daughter’s bedroom lamp! They are so cute! And for $1!! :o)

    I clicked on your post from TTJ because I saw the butterflies, but I absolutely LOVE your mantle- the wreath- that ribbon is great!- the BLUE window pane! *sigh* I’m a sucker for almost anything blue!!

    Nice work!

  2. Haha, it took me another few minutes of looking around your blog to notice we have the same name!! I think that makes it a requirement that I become a follower, right? :o)

  3. Thank you Stacey!
    I was thrown off too by your name as it is spelled just like mine! I thought I was the only Stacey with an “ey” – nice to meet you! thanks for your comments – I am loving on blue right now as well…I can’t get enough! Thanks for coming by and following me on this journey!
