Coffee Filter Wreath

DSC_0005
This is one of those projects that took minutes, really just minutes. I’ve been wanting to make a book page wreath, like I’ve been seeing everywhere these days, I got started and realized that this project might just outlast my patience. So I improvised.
I had a white Styrofoam wreath that I found on a clearance table for a quarter. And I had a bunch of coffee filters that we keep on hand for kid projects. I gathered up some pins from the craft drawer. Then I used the pins to put the scrunched up filters on the wreath. I hung a ribbon with another pin and it was done.

My kind of craft is really easy and quick these days-my days are just filled with other things that occupy a lot of time. I literally did this in about five minutes.

Come back later and see how it’s hanging out on my wall.
I’m sharing with Kimba and Kim today.

  6. You could dip the edges in watercolor to make the edges a different color and to give it a different look.....Awesome idea though.

  8. I would have never thought of this! Or the cupcake liners Sandra mentioned. I also am more drawn to simple things these days. Today I made note cards utilizing my scanner and printer instead of doing hand stamped, collage type cards. I posted about them at my blog. Sometimes simplicity is more beautiful to me than something elaborate.

  9. This looks so neat and airy- I like it! We have a package of those filters too- we don't drink coffee, so I have a LOT of craft projects left in that package :) I think the kids and I will give this a try!
