Fall Coffee Filter Wreath

As you can probably already tell from a lot of my posts, Fall is my absolute favorite season. I just love everything about it. I have been working on a few fall crafts and thought of the coffee filter wreath that I had seen on Pinterest. I figured I would give it a try. Here is what you need if you are interested in making one.



* 14 inch Foam wreath
* Door Wreath Hanger
* 200 Coffee filters
*Ribbon (This is not necessary. You can put any decoration you want on your wreath.)
* Orange Food Coloring
* Hot glue gun

First you need to place all of your coffee filters in a sink and run just enough water to cover them. Then put a few drops of food coloring of your choice in water.



Let soak for a few hours or until you get the desired color shade you want.


Then wring the water out of the filters and let completely dry before attempting anything else.


Upon drying the next step is to fold a few coffee filters at a time into the shape of a triangle


Begin by hot gluing these on the inside of wreath like below


Keep working your way from the inside to outside of wreath. End result should look like this...


I made the mistake of bundling too many coffee filters at one time together. That's why the bottom of the wreath looks so bunched up.  So use less filters when forming triangles.

My friend Kelli also made one that I find easier to make. She didn't use food coloring. She hot glued the filters just the color they were and then spray painted the wreath her desired color. It cuts down on a lot of time.


I really enjoyed making this wreath, It's different from all of the mesh wreaths that you see. What I liked most about it was that it was very inexpensive to make. I will definitely be making more of these!

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! What fall crafts are you making?
