Making a Coffee Filter Wreath and Tree and Things of That Nature

I’m not the first and I certainly won’t be the last to make one of these voluptuous, show stopping wreaths.

I used extra large white filters and hot glued them onto a wreath with the clear wrapping on {why unwrap it?}.  You can practice with folding the filters different ways to get different looks.  This project took about an hour and cost less than $5.

See how HUGE it is?  I liked it so much that I decided to make a tree too.

Get you a styrofoam tree form and do the same thing all over again.  I worked from the bottom up.

And again, it took me about an hour.

About half way through you will be convinced that you have lost your mind and that this project has already wasted 30 minutes of your life and that there is no way it will ever look like a tree.  Keep hot gluing.

I decided that I liked to fold most of the filters in quarters making sure not to press the ruffled part flat that way it would be nice and fluffy.  I folded some in half again after the quarters {is that 8ths?} just to mix it up a little.


Work your way to the top {by starting at the bottom you’ll ensure that the filters are already starting to point up as you pack them and glue them in–this is what you want at the top of the tree.

Then take your scissors and trim it up until it looks like a Christmas tree.

I’ve already put the wreath in our family room, it’s a year ’round wreath that you could add seasonal items to if you want.

And the tree is glorious.

I’m glad I stuck with it and finished it.  It’s great for Christmas and would be beautiful on tables at a winter wedding.
