Okay, here's my disclaimer: I'm not a crafty person. There you go. Luckily for my sake though, I have crafty friends and they teach me how to do some cute things. And apparently coffee filter wreaths have been floating around Pinterest for a while now, but I must be behind the times because the first one I have ever seen was hanging in my friend's bathroom a few weeks ago. So…if you happened to miss this on Pinterest like I did, here it is!
And I promise you these look much more beautiful in person (The angle I took the picture makes the coffee filters look a little uneven).

How to Make a Coffee Filter Wreath
The best part about the coffee filter wreath is that it costs less than $5 to make! These are the supplies you will need:
- Embroidery Hoop or wreath (I used a 10″ embroidery hoop)
- Glue gun & Glue
- Package of coffee filters (I used a package of 200)
Basically you will be folding each coffee filter in half, and then in half again and then gluing them on, alternating directions as you glue (on in front, one in back). I started gluing mine on the top of the embroidery hoop, then the front, and then the inside. I didn't waste time taking pictures since there are way better tutorials out there than I could make. If you don't want your coffee filter wreath to be white, you can either spray paint your coffee filters, or you can buy the brown/tan-ish ones. I however love the look of the white.
Here's a better angle of it:
Here are a couple of video tutorials:
There you have it! So easy, and very cheap to make. And don't worry, if you are in the middle of making your coffee filter wreath and it isn't looking like it's going to turn out, don't panic! It starts to fill out and really look beautiful towards the end…plus…if there are areas that aren't as full as others, it is super easy to just fill in areas that need it.
If you do better reading instructions rather than watching them, here is a tutorial on the blog Vanhook & Co.
So how many of you have and haven't seen this before (I'm curious how out of the loop I am)?
