These wreaths have been done many times, but this is the first one I've made and I'll be sharing the instructions below.

I love the texture this wreath adds and you'd never think it is just hundreds of coffee filters glued to a wreath form!

How to Create a Simple Coffee Filter Wreath:
  • simple coffee filter wreath

  • simple coffee filter wreath
Tie your ribbon around the wreath form, make it long enough to be a hanger.

Then, hot glue each individual coffee filter down one by one in the same direction.

I think it took me 4-5 hours to make this entire wreath. I broke it up and worked on it an hour a day. It isn't hard, just time consuming.

    Thank you for your up close pictures and instructions. As you mentioned in your intro, these wreaths are done quite a bit, but I've never seen the explicit directions that you've shared and as one who's always game but not really very good, I need
