How to Make a Coffee Filter Wreath

Supplies: 16" foam wreath ($4.50 with Michael's coupon)
200 count natural coffee filter package ($1.29 at grocery store)
Glue gun
a dozen glue sticks (give or take)
 2 1/4 " thick satin ribbon
3 sewing pins

 Because I didn't want my wreath too full, which is what happens when you use the whole filter, I cut each one, leaving 2" for the wreath.  Throw away/recycle the pointed piece. With the 2" remaining piece, bunch together the filter and apply hot glue, place on wreath, hold for about 30 seconds to adhere.


This is the back of the wreath, as you can see its hard to get the glue on every piece of the folded filter, which is fine, it will still hold.

I wrapped a piece of the ribbon around the top of the wreath, then brought it up to hang. Because mine is on the wall, no door, I used a staple gun to hold it in place. Its hidden under the ribbon. Sewing pins keep the ribbon in place on the back and 1 is used to attach the bow on.


  1. Did you leave space for the ribbon between the filters or did you tie the ribbon over them?
