Welcome back to 12 Months of Wreaths!
Hi everyone! Welcome back to our second month of 12 Months of Wreaths! This month, I wanted to work on a wreath that I could hang on our new cathedral mirror that is above our console table. I wanted something neutral and clean... I decided a coffee filter wreath would be perfect! These wreaths have been done many times, but this is the first one I've made and I'll be sharing the instructions below.
I love the texture this wreath adds and you'd never think it is just hundreds of coffee filters glued to a wreath form!

Now I will share with you how I created this gorgeous wreath!
How to Create a Simple Coffee Filter Wreath:
The supplies for this craft are basic, you just need a 12" flat wreath form, ribbon and coffee filters. I used 400 coffee filters for this wreath!
Tie your ribbon around the wreath form, make it long enough to be a hanger.
These pictures show you how to fold each coffee filter. Basically, you fold it in half three times.
Fold the tip to make a point. This point is what you'll hot glue to the wreath form. Then, hot glue each individual coffee filter down one by one in the same direction.
I think it took me 4-5 hours to make this entire wreath. I broke it up and worked on it an hour a day. It isn't hard, just time consuming.
More Photos of the Wreath in the Room:
Here is the wreath in the room, I still need to decorate my console table for the spring, it's been pretty bare since the holidays.
Just a gorgeous detail shot of the wreath.
Thanks for joining us this month! I can't wait to share our wreaths again next month with you!
