Need a Fall Wreath That is Inexpensive to Make?

364K Views
There are so many materials that you can use to make a Fall wreath. Some of them can be quite expensive by the time you purchase all the additional supplies. However, coffee filters are inexpensive and if you are like me, you like changing out your wreath often.
I will show you how to make this coffee filter wreath that you can then change to meet your decor.
Step 1: Start with a base. I am using a straw wreath that i purchased at a garage sale for 25 cents. I see them often at garage sales and buy them for wreath making.
Cost: $4 Difficulty: Easy

Step 2: Purchase a package of coffee filters. I bought these natural coffee filters since they were already tan and I didn't have to tea stain them. You could also use white ones for a different look. These filters were around $2.

Step 3: Separate your filters. Take one of the filters and gather it while holding the bottom.

Step 4: Attach the filter to the wreath. Place some hot glue on the wreath and add the filter. Be careful of the hot glue. I burn myself on a regular basis.

Step 5: Continue gathering filters and attaching them to the base. I did some filters differently. I pushed up the bottom so that it made a center for the filter and attached it. This created smaller flowers. I liked the two sizes and the look it created.

Step 6: Add a ribbon to the wreath before finishing attaching all the coffee filters. I just tied it around until later.
When all the filters were attached, I used some black mesh that I purchased at the Dollar Tree.

Step 7: I cut the mesh into squares and "scrunched them up and then hot glued them between the coffee filters.

Step 8: Now it was time to make and attach the bow. I cut the remaining ribbon to make a hanger so I could hang it.

    Love this! You could even spray it with paint or glitter for other occasions.

    The dollar store sells that thick drippy sparkly glue. Drip it on the wreath over the paper flowers and when it dries it's beautiful. I used gold and silver for Xmas wreaths.

      Jackie, I need to try tat. Sounds like it would be so beautiful. I actually think I have some of that glue here. Just might try it.

    I would go to the Dollar Store for the coffee filters.

      I am Greek we haven't Dollar stores in Greece or any other place where I can find them. I tried big cupcakes but it didn't work they were too small and it didn't look nice. Any way a nice friend from U.S. got some for me and she had already mail

    I didn't use glue. I used common pins. (a thimble would be good to use also) and that way you can reuse the pins when the wreath gets old or out of use.

      Jackie, I like that idea. It would save my fingers from hot glue.

    Yes and you can make one quickly. No waiting for glue to dry.

      I like that idea. Fast and effective. Can't wait to make one that way.
