Yet another project I found in the land o’ blogs–a wreath made solely out of coffee filters! I saw this project on The Little Brown House blog.
I have three different coffee makers (and now a french press). Some call it addiction; I call it dedication.
But really…I might have a problem.
Anyway, I hardly ever use my full-size drip coffee maker, so I have a ton of coffee filters (I think I’ve used two or three out of the package of 200!). Rather than go out and buy brown ones like she did (which I really love the look of!), I wanted to use what I already had.
$4.97 for the styrofoam wreath form
$1 for the ribbon
- I started by tying a ribbon so I wouldn’t have to find a place later.
- Put Netflix in DVD player.
- Sit down on couch.
- Grab coffee filters by the middle of the bottom.
- “Fluff” three or four together (still pinching the bottom middle) and pin down with a straight pin directly into the wreath form. (If you want it to be REALLY secure, you could hot glue the sections as well/instead of using pins.)
- Continue until you’ve worked your way around, pinning groups as close together or far apart as you want (mine were a lot closer together than hers were. Consequently, I ended up using nearly all that were in my package of 200, whereas she used around 75).
