If you’ve been poking around crafty/home decor blogs for a few years now, then you’ve probably seen about 100 variations of the coffee filter wreath. They’ve been a super popular craft for awhile, but really everyone and their dog was making them about 3 or 4 years ago. It’s almost become required crafting in the blog world. You can’t get your certificate of bloggyness without having made at least one. And I hadn’t. Until now. So I decided to make up for lost time and give it a try.
All joking about my lack of originality aside, there’s a reason these wreaths are so popular! It really was easy and I was thrilled with the impressive-looking results.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of making one of these. Here’s a look at how I made it.
I cut a heart out of a piece of cardboard to start. Perfection isn’t necessary here because the whole thing eventually poofs out and takes on a life of its own. Just a vague heart-like shape will do.
The coffee filters get folded in half 3 times and then hot glued down to fill in the shape with fluffy goodness.
Just like that!
Fluffy puffiness is the result!
Here it is next to the Valentine’s tree that’s saving V-Day for my whole family.
I stuck a few other Valentinesy things around, like this heart on a piece of wood that Kennedy painted for me last year.
…well, actually, that’s really about it.
It’s mostly festive. And that’s good enough. I’m still keeping that frame out though cause I think it’s pretty and I’ll eventually get something in there.
So that’s what Valentine’s day is looking like around these parts!
Have you made a coffee filter wreath before? If you’ve been putting it off like I have, you should go for it! It’s definitely one craft that gives you a lot of bang (and puffiness) for your buck!
