I love coffee and coffee filter wreaths!

I was in need of mindless craft therapy tonight and this coffee filter wreath was just the ticket. Very very inexpensive, fairly fast, mindless.

Foam wreath 8". I happened to have one on hand but you could easily make or repurpose a wreath.
Coffee filters (natural) I used 2 packs.
Hot glue

I first wrapped the wreath with a single layer of filters and glued them in place. I separated a coffee filter and folded it in half and then into thirds. It looks like a fluffy piece of pie at this point :). I folded the tip of the pie up and glued it with a small dot of glue to hold in place. I ran a bead of glue along the folded edge and secured it to my wreath. I established a pattern working from the top edge of the wreath to the center edge. Keep it simple. This wreath is very forgiving so do NOT stress over your folded 'pie' pieces not being straight. Here are some pics and please excuse the messy house :)


  1. Wow! This is a beautiful wreath Andrea. I have a whole pkg of coffee filters just waiting for me to use them. this might be just the project for me to try. Mine are white, but I can see using my paint gun to add some color to the wreath. Just take it outside and lightly spray the tops of it.

    I love this!!!


  2. Thanks Kimberly! I think this wreath is not only simple (enough for me) and inexpensive (I spent about $3) bit its totally versital. I think white would be beautiful!! Then spray some great colors or leave it white. This wreath has multiple personalities ;). I'm going to make mine a little vintage with red....might add a few balls I'm not sure yet. I'm going to let the wreath talk to me lol.

  3. Hey did you add the red and balls? I would love to see an updated version what a Great idea!!
