Home Decor: Repurpose Paper and Coffee Filter Flowers Into Giant Wreat

Make, or in my case, repurpose large paper and coffee filter flowers into a giant floral statement wreath. I used layered paper flowers repurposed from another project and cut using my Silhouette Cameo with cut files downloaded from the Silhouette online store. Similar patterns can be found in Cricut Design Space and numerous sites that offer downloadable SVG files.


I started with the largest of the layered paper flowers, spacing them evenly on the wreath form. Then I added the smaller paper flowers spacing them in between the larger ones.



When I made these, I intentionally made different styles of flowers because I didn't want everything to match. After I had all of the paper flowers placed, I started adding the coffee filter flowers which again, I didn't make all the same.


These were easy to fluff back up since they'd gotten a little squished being boxed up! I filled in the bare spots, fluffing along the way until the wreath form was filled in. It went very quickly and now is the first thing I've hung on the wall in my new office!

    Hi! How do you keep them from wilting? Because after a while they kind of look saggy

    Hmmm the ones I used here are actually three years old and survived a move. Could be because I live in the desert and there's little to no humidity?
