A Big Fluffy Wreath

This wreath is a total copy of Nester’s coffee filter wreath.  When she posted about it, I had to have it of course.  It’s an infectious wreath.

Gather all of your supplies, i.e. big coffee filters, a wreath form, and your glue gun.  Beware, I burned myself MANY times during this project and it hurt like the dickens.  But beauty is painful.

Once you have everything just do this…

Until you get it nice and full like this.

Then add a little holiday cheer if you wish.  I just sat an extra bell in mine.

Cuteness right?  You will probably need to use some scissors to even out some spots.  It’s just so fluffy and beautiful.  Hubby said it looks like a giant carnation, and that’s ok too.  Oh, and I couldn’t figure out how to hang it on our back door properly, so I just hot glued the entire wreath to the glass.  Classy, I know.

So do you have a thing for crafts made with coffee filters too, or have you made the famous filter wreath?  They are becoming quite popular it seems.  I love them!

I will be sharing this post at Kate’s holiday craft party, The Shabby Chic Cottage, Under the Table and DreamingThe Shabby Nest, Just a Girl and Thrifty Decor Chick before and after party.

  1. Just beautiful…love the red bell in it too, you did a wonderful job!


  2. Beautiful!

  3. I scared the baby with a snort reading that you hot glued it to the door!

    Smart idea!

  4. I love those wreaths! Yours is fantastic =) Loving the bell addition 2!

  5. That’s gorgeous! Had to laugh at the hot glue. I use it on EVERYTHING! =) Never made one before, so am curious: how many filters did you need to get that fullness?

  6. I love how beautiful and soft it looks. The bright red bell really adds wonderful bling!

  7. oh, this is just beautiful! i don’t think it looks like a carnation at all (but that gives me the idea to add a bit of essential oil to a few ruffles for a wreath diffuser!

  8. OMG I just love that! I like that you added the bell. Hope your burned fingers heal soon, done that one to many times : )

  9. Seriously so cute!!

  11. Love it Emily! I saw the Nester’s too. Yours is super full, great job. Since I have tons of filters laying around (we use our Keurig now), I seriously need to make one of those!!

  12. Awwwww……this is sooo very pretty. I took a look out of curiosity, just to see what you’ve got. I didn’t expect to be so awestruck. I DEFINITELY have to do this. Thank you. It is just what I’m needing now, I just didn’t know it.

    I love it, but you really hot glued it to the window?? How are you going to get it off? Or is it now a permanent addition? ;0)

  20. So cute! I cannot believe you glued it to the window. :) We have double glass windows and I use suction cups with hooks found at Hobby Lobby. Works awesome, easy to move, and stays on there great!!!

  21. Beautiful!

  22. Looks great! I just did one a few weeks ago too…I brought it to a craft fair and got a MILLION comments on it…but no buyers! Oh well, I’m not really complaining…now I get to keep it for myself :)

  23. Emily that is one PRECIOUS wreath!!!! Great job my friend! :)

  24. Very pretty! Love the red bell too.

  25. I have this wreath on my agenda this week – after I get done painting and putting up beadboard. I love the coffee filter wreath and yours is awesome!!

  26. What a darling wreath:)
    Happy Showcase Sunday!

    Nice to meet you,
    Kay Ellen

  27. I really love this idea! Can’t wait to try it!!!

  28. Love it!!! I did mine with natural coffee filters..I love the white too. I looped a ribbon through the center and thumb tacked it to the wall, so I get the hot glue to the window trick!
