Coffee filter wreath - how's this for frugal?!

Posted December 10, 2010

Thanks to Michelle who just sent me a picture of her coffee filter wreath creation. How is that for frugal and creative?!

Here is the e-mail she sent about the wreath:

"I'm not sure why the yellow spots are in the pic. They are not on the wreath.

This is soooo simple. All you need is a round styrofoam wreath form (or anything circular - you can even cut it out of foam core). You fold the coffee filter in half and then in half again and glue them all around. Add a bow and viola you have a pretty wreath."

Thanks for sharing this with the blog, Michelle!

    Just to let you know Walgreens has coffee filters for .39 with a coupon in the ad this week.

    Thanks again, Michelle! It sounds easy enough that a child could help with this craft. Might be a fun holiday activity to do together.

    Hi all! Thank you for the comments on my wreath. To answer your question I used regular size coffee filters that I purchased at the Dollar Tree. I think there are 160 in the pack and it didn't take quite a whole pack.

    There are many things you can add to the wreath. To get a better idea I would suggest that you google "coffee filter wreath". There are some great ideas out there! Have fun!

    Great job Michelle! Did you use regular sized filters or small filters? I know what my gifts are going to be next Christmas. I'll be watching for sales on coffee filters :) Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!

    Awesome! And with some red berries and green springs from the yard, it can become quite colorful if you wanted to too!

    Now, dare I take a box of filters out of the stash? LOL I scored big at Kohls on the filters for my hubbies Bunn coffee maker last year, so there are plenty :)

    Today, however, is bake-off in the kitchen day. Want to start getting all my goodies made for giving out over the next week as I run errands. The wreath will have to wait!

    if you wanted to, you could probably lightly spray paint it if you wanted to add some color, but that is really cool and I think that will be on my list to do. Thanks for sharing!

    Before I clicked on the link, I didn't know what sort of creation I was going to see...but what a beautiful wreath, and sounds so easy to make! Great job, Michelle!
