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|
|A close-up of how the wreath looked early on|
|Butterfly embellishments from the Dollar Tree|
|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.
What are you working on this weekend?
