Cough-ee Filter Wreath

Another week and more great DIY ideas. I literally have not been able to sleep at night with all these craft ideas running threw my head. I guess things could be worse...so Saturday I could not have been happier when I actually was able to tackle one of them...coffee filter wreath!!!

Even if your not a huge coffee drinker this will cost you around...$5 Shut up!

What you'll need you ask?

All you need is a glue gun, glue sticks, a 12" wreath, ($3.99 at Michael's) and a pack of  coffee filters ($1 at the dollar store if you don't already have them.)

         Next, fold the coffee filter in half then, fold the non ruffle sides in toward the center.   
                    Then,starting from the top of the wreath and working around 
                        begin gluing around and around until it looks like...
                                                        I love how  it pops on our red front door.

    What is so great about this wreath is how easy it is to change up...
     I added a crystal ornament to give a little extra spawwkle...
    This is in my guest room...it reminds me of a little bed n breakfast.

     Just like an outfit, the right accessories can take this wreath from winter to spring.


I love this wreath so much, I look at everything and wonder if it would looked good covered in coffee filters. (hehe )The Hubster would kill me but I do have one more project (ok maybe two) involving these carnation one a be's. Stay tuned!

I have more ideas for this cluster of cuteness but couldn't wait to post it!

         What drink has a cold?


                                                  Gotta love popsicle jokes...and how fitting.

  3. Thanks! The pillows are from Pottery Barn...on sale of course!

  4. Ooh! I love it! I thought it was funny how after you made your wreath your were looking for other items to adorn with coffee filters. :) That's exactly what I do when I do a project. Like what else can I paint a chevron pattern onto? Hehehe


  5. Exactly...My husband is like "Great, our house will be nothing but coffee filters!" hehe No, Just until I find something else I obsess about. :)
