Have you seen Coffee Filter Wreaths on Pinterest or around the internet? I recently made one and will give you the low down on the project.
This requires a glue gun, glue sticks, a 14″ straw wreath form, 400 basket style coffee filters and your patient pants. Sets you back all of $5 if you have the glue gun and sticks.
This is NOT a fast project. I think it took a few hours which was shocking. I’m not good a sitting around so this was a test of patience for me. I took a single filter and twisted it into a cone with a slightly angled tip. Repeat 399 more times. The simplest way is to shape them before turning on the glue gun.
After a few burns I got smarter. Learn from me and save your finger tips! I took a pencil and pressed the hot glued filter against the straw form for a few seconds then released. I glued them tightly together moving around the wreath form and my wreath is very fluffy.
I spent a half hour in hot glue hell for a few days convinced it would be worth it. Before I finished the last section I added a loop of jute so I could hang it once finished then glued around it.
I do think it was worth it and I love the feminine texture. But for the record I do have a 2nd wreath form but am in no rush to do it all over again! By all means give it a whirl!
I was worth your time and patience, it looks smashing!
Thank you!!!! It took a lot of sit down time but I love the texture of it. Glad it’s a smashing success 😊
[…] The wreath one on the door is made from coffee filters! I put it there until I found a fall wreath that I liked. I made it and you can too- here’s the blog link for that project http://laureldanedesigns.com/2018/03/24/coffee-filter-wreath/ […]
