Coffee Filter Wreath..

Here is something else that I picked up off of Pinterest this year. I saw it and just had to make one. It's another simple and cheap decoration to make however it is a bit time consuming but was fun to make. Here is the list of supplies that you'll need:
Straw or styrofoam wreath
2 packs of 160 coffee filters
hot glue gun
hot glue
1 piece of floral wire
First off use your long piece of floral wire and wrap it around the top of the wreath and make a little loop so that you'll have a way to hang your wreath once it's complete. Then I use several of the coffee filters to wrap around the entire straw wreath so that you couldn't see the base of it. Now for the time consuming part....take an fold each coffee filter in half then fold in a triangle 2 more times. Once that's done twist the pointy end of the coffee filter about 3/4 inch up then snip the end off leaving only just a little of the twisted end so that it want come untwisted. Take and open up the fluffy end of the coffee filter. It will kind of remind you of a rose once it's been fluffed up. When I started gluing them on the wreath I just worked in a circle being sure to fill in as tightly as I could. That's it...just a little time and patience. Have fun and Happy Crafting!
