Coffee Filter Wreath

I was looking through my crafting stuff trying to find something that would entertain my child when I came across some old coffee filters that I have had for a billion years.  I gave it to my son and of course he immediately crumpled it up, and that gave me an idea.  I had a spare wreath I had gotten from the dollar store so I decided to give it a try.
I used a wreath, coffee filters, glue gun, and glue sticks.
I forgot to wrap the wreath with ribbon, or something. I would definitely recommend doing that.


So I took the coffee filter and folded it in half.  I put some glue on 1/4 of it and folded it in fourths, then glued it on.  





I glued them on in sections so I could just fill in what was left.  Doing it that way worked well for me.

I just started adding coffee filters where in the empty spaces.

FINISHED!


It turned out so much fuller than I expected!

That is so fun! You probably could dye them too and make it colorful. I need to do this with my kids, thanks for the idea!

So pretty! I love how you layered the filters. It almost gives the illusion of lace. Love it!
