I admit it…I am not a coffee lover. Nope, not me. Unless it comes from Starbucks. Then you might find me with a piping hot Chai Tea Latte. I LOVE CHAI. Do you? Or are you a 3 cups take it black kinda gal?
Well, I was cleaning out the pantry and came across a stack of coffee filters from awhile ago when we had a normal coffee maker.
Nowadays, my Hubbs drinks the single service K-Cup thingie. All I know is don’t drink it so I don’t have to worry about that at home. But what to do with this large stack of filters??
After looking online for coffee filter crafts, which there are many, I came across a picture of a coffee filter wreath.
Hey, I can make that. I searched my disaster of a craft closet and found a metal wreath base. Perfect. Hot glue, I am set.
This is the kind of craft you do in front of the TV, but please be careful with the hot glue. It does hurt when you glue your fingers, not that I have done that or anything! 🙂
Literally, all I did was separate a big stack of filters so they didn’t stick to each other.
Take them one at a time and gather starting in the center like you would tissue for a gift bag. Pinch the middle of the filter and using your other hand form a cone type shape with the filter.
Then working from the middle towards the outside of the wreath form, I tucked the end of the filter under the wire and added a dab of hot glue.
Held in place for a second until cool and will not come apart. Grab another filter, rinse and repeat.
Keep working your way around the wreath form and packing the filters in a bit so there are no gaps you see on the base.
If there are, take a filter and fill in the gap.
Once you have it as full as you like, decorate it any way you want.
Add some Halloween frills like I did, with my own Halloween Printables. Or go to a craft store and get Halloween scrapbook embellishments to add. The only limit is what your imagination can create.
