Simple Coffee Filter Wreath

2 Materials
I created this wreath to hang on our new cathedral mirror that is above our console table. I wanted something neutral and clean... I decided a coffee filter wreath would be perfect!
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:
The supplies for this craft are basic, you just need a 12" flat wreath form, ribbon and coffee filters. I used 400 coffee filters for this wreath!
Tie your ribbon around the wreath form, make it long enough to be a hanger.
The next two photos show you how to fold each coffee filter.
Basically, you fold it in half three times.
Fold the tip to make a point. This point is what you'll hot glue to the wreath form.
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.
Here is the wreath in the room, you'll see I have my console table decorated for the Spring!
Just a gorgeous detail shot of the wreath. This wreath is really easy to make, just a little time consuming... but, worth it!

    If you want to stain them with coffee - how would one do that.

    How far apart did you glue the filters? Was there space between each row, and if so, how much?

    Could you spray paint the filters lightly after glued? Like a light pink? Or maybe the spray adhesive with glitter?
