How to Make a Shabby Chic Coffee Filter Wreath. The perfect year-round neutral decor.
I love to decorate and try "new" decor but to be honest, I don't like the money it can cost even if you DIY a project yourself so that's why I'm always looking for crafts that are budget-friendly, i.e., cheap! I had seen big, beautiful, ruffly, frilly, shabby chic wreaths on Pinterest last year and made one but never shared the tutorial here until I shared my Fall Home Tour the other day and had a few comments about the wreath above and below,
and thought there was no better time than NOW to share the easy tutorial with you.
How To Make a Coffee Filter Wreath
Foam Wreath - 18 inches
300 natural unbleached coffee filters - you can also use the white ones
Floral Pins - at LEAST 300 - the photo above shows T-Pins but don't waste your time with those. I didn't like my results and switched to the floral pins. which I felt anchored the filters better.
Separate coffee filters. I did about 15 to 20 at a time. You could have the kids help with this 🙂
Fold filter in half and flatten slightly.
Fold in half again - the filter will now be in fourths - and flatten slightly. The pointed area at the bottom is what you'll be attaching to the wreath form.
Enjoy the ruffly beauty!
Attach folded filters to wreath staggering across the wreath. In some areas there will be three filters across and in other areas, two. You want these to be snug up against each other to fill in the wreath so that there are no white areas on the front or the sides showing.
Keep going and going......
I worked on mine while watching TV with the family. It took me a few nights but if you're focused, you can probably complete it in one evening.
That's all there is to it! So what do you think?
