Coffee Filter Wreath


I haven’t posted a food related craft in a while so here’s a perfect one that doubles for holiday’s like Christmas and Valentine’s Day. It would even look good for a wedding or bridal shower. I think I’m gonna make another one with brown coffee filters like Centsible Savings made for more of an all year look. Best thing is you can add anything you want to personalize them from glitter to snowflakes to any trinket you can find.

I first saw this craft on Martha Stewart then I saw Sandra Lee had one in her December magazine. I decided to go with Sandra Lee’s idea using a foam wreath instead of Martha’s using a rim of a paper plate.

Foam Wreath
White Crepe Paper
Coffee Filters
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Wrap wreath form with white crepe paper to create a white background.


Pinch the centers of coffee filters to create blooms.


With a hot glue gun, adhere coffee filter blooms around the front of the wreath. Continue until wreath is covered.


Hang wreath with white ribbon attached to the back. (I wrapped the ribbon around the foam wreath before I attached the coffee filters.)


Oh and before I forget I thought I would send out a shout out Thank You for all my lovely gifts over Christmas from family. Here’s a peek at a few of the items I got and can’t wait to use…


Have a safe and happy New Year’s I’ll see you next year!!
