I’ve heard of using coffee filters for different projects and really wanted to try since they are so cheap. Plus, the white color is great for winter decorating.
I’ve been needing a wreath for our front door so I decided to use this idea for that. This was really easy, but it takes about 30-40 minutes due to all the folding and gluing.
To start, you need the frame only of a picture frame, some white coffee filters (the basket kind, not cone), hot glue gun and some pretty ribbon.
Take a coffee filter and smoosh the bottom of it together and press flat.
Then staple the flat area to keep it together.
Then fold them where the staple is and hot glue down to the frame.
Repeat all the way around just kind of stacking them along each other.
I found it easiest to make a bunch of the petals first and then glue them down.
Wrap them all the way around and you are done.
To hang it, just hot glue a piece of pretty ribbon to the back of the frame.
You can hang using a wreath hanger that goes over the door or with a nail or 3M hook.
I found an old broach of my grandma’s and the pin on it fit perfectly over the 3M hook. No gluing needed!
That added a little touch and covered up my hook.
So, I made this for my front door, but then I selfishly wanted to be able to enjoy it all the time instead of the one minute when I pull up the driveway. So, it is hanging on the inside of my house. Sorry, neighbors, you get to stare at a lonely, abandoned hook on our plain front door. fa la la la la la la la.
I think this would look neat with some sort of adornment on it, maybe letters like JOY toward the bottom or even a section of brown coffee filters. If you try this and do something fun, please share with me because this is as far as I got.
Happy Holidays! They’re comin’!
