I Hug Before I Go To Bed: My Coffee Filter Wreath

DIY Coffee Filter Wreath

Ok, so… I don’t know if you can tell, but I am totally in love with my wreath. I just sit and swoon and stare at it all day long. I can’t help it. It’s just so pretty … and white … and pouf-y. Plus, we shared four long and treacherous nights together. It’s only natural to feel like it’s a part of me, right?

I also love the fact that I was going to make a pom pom wreath this Christmas and opted out of it for a coffee filter wreath instead. Like as if it was going to be that much easier. This coffee filter wreath took me FOREVER! I think I could have made pom pom’s faster than making this. I lost faith in it a couple of times, for sure — hot glue gun burns coupled with skeptical husband… But I stuck with it! And my little girl cheerlead-ed me along. She would say to me every morning: “Your wreath is looking really pretty, mommy.” Aww. Even when it looked like a lump of nothing. I love her. Almost as much as I love my wreath. Ha ha.

All kidding aside, this wreath was actually an incredibly easy, very inexpensive and exciting DIY project to attempt. Just be prepared to dedicate a few nights making it. Because it is pretty time-consuming.

I used: 2 packs of coffee filters, a straw wreath (from Joann’s), and a hot glue gun. That’s it! I reused the ribbon from the packaging on these wonderful chocolates we got as a gift.
