Winter Wreath
{made from coffee filters}

I've seen so many of these wreaths made from coffee filters online and I just had to give it a try. I rarely get to hang such feminine looking decor in the house(I live with all boys, 4 of them) and this really tapped into my girlie side. I just love how it turned out. Even my husband and brother had to go up and pat it....both saying,"It's so fluffy." Pretty funny to see grown men patting a wreath. Anyways, here is what you'll need:
Coffee Filters
(I didn't count, but probably used about 150)
Hot Glue Gun and Sticks...LOTS!!
Dollar Store Wreath Form
All you do is fold the coffee filter in half, in half again, and a 3rd time. It should look like a triangle. Then, fold the tip upwards. I did it so about and inch was folded up.(sorry for the lack of pictures...i was super focused) Put some hot glue on the wreath and stick the filter on. You can do this in any way you want as long as you make it really full. I worked in rows, but I'm sure any method will work just fine.
Here it is at about a quater finished.
I was almost finished and ran out of filters
(i was using some that we had on hand)
My husband went to the store and got another huge thing of filters. I have a ton if I ever want to make another wreath.
Finally finished and hanging on the front door. It's perfect for Winter. I just loved this project!
