Hello Sweet Friends~Today I’m doing a Coffee Filter Wreath that you just might love! There’s a quick video tutorial at the end of the post!
It uses the Coffee Filter Flowers posted HERE. I told you we’d use those little flowers for another project! This wreath is perfect for fall but you could easily change the colors for any season~
Here’s What Ya Need
Straw Wreath Form- I used 10″
Natural Coffee Filters
See, you need next-to-nothing to do this project! Let’s get started…
Take your coffee filters, one at a time, and wad them up…then smooth them out. This makes them look less like coffee filters and more like old paper…(or as I said in the video, “aged papyrus” …where I got that term I’ll never know)
Squeeze and mash the filters (one at a time) like the picture…you aren’t making a flower necessarily, just getting the paper situated to look pretty in the wreath! (the video shows you how)
Now, put a straight pin in the “stem” of the paper and stick it in the wreath …
Because the wreath is a similar color to the coffee filters you don’t need to go crazy pinning these all over the place…I did that, went a little crazy, and the wreath was kinda poofy…so I just took some out …go easy on the coffee filters unless you want a poofy wreath and if poofy is what you’re looking for…then go nuts!
Now take your coffee filter (watercolor) flowers and tuck and pin them here and there around your wreath…just add them in places you think the wreath needs a bit of color…
After your wreath is ruffly, take your fall pick and put it anywhere you think looks nice… 🙂 You’ll know just where to add a little color~
Ya know what I like about this? That a few very simple, humble elements come together to make something rather lovely…when I look at it, I’m reminded God can do that…
The video today is just over 2 minutes, see how quick this project goes!? And I take you to the dining room to show you where this cute little wreath will live throughout the autumn season…

At the end of all my tutorial videos I always ask you to send me a photo of the project if you do one of your own…my sweet new friend Alena from Moscow sent me her version which is SO beautiful and inspires me to want to make another one! Thank you Alena xo
Sending love my sweet friends
