Coffee Filter Wreath

We know its only a few days until Christmas, but we just had to share these fun wreaths that we made!  Even while we’re decking the halls, we’ve only got one thing on our mind: Coffee!  So when we saw these super festive Coffee Filter Wreaths, we knew we needed to give them a try.

They were very easy to make, and the materials were not expensive at all.  We purchased regular coffee filters (we liked the natural color, but white will work as well), some gold ball ornaments from the Dollar Store, and some straw wreaths from Michaels.  Then, we grabbed some whole bean and ground coffee, warmed up our glue gun and got right to work. 

We bunched up a ton of the coffee filters, leaving a little pocket at the bottom, and glued them directly onto the wreath, making sure the whole wreath was covered (see pictures below).  We wanted to add some ornaments, so we used hot glue to stick whole beans onto some of the ornaments, and then painted others with regular old Elmers before we rolled them in coffee grounds.  The gold of the ornaments helps add a little shimmer, but we wanted a little more, so after they were dry, we sprayed them with a gold glitter spray paint, and then glued them straight onto the wreath with hot glue.

The coffee filters will not stand up to humidity outside, so we chose to put the wreaths up inside at both our Coffee Roaster and Coffee Bar.  We love the finished look!   Maybe you’re looking for a last minute décor idea…  If you try this out, send us pictures and let us know how it goes.
