I recently completed this coffee filter wreath. I had pinned a coffee filter wreath a while back and thought it looked like a fun project to try out. I'll Get You My Pretties provides a great tutorial and it's a lot less time consuming then other types of coffee filter wreaths out there. I completed this one in one viewing of Sleeping Beauty with my daughter. That is the movie of choose at this point in our summer.
I purchased this straw wreath from Hobby Lobby for approximately five dollars. Then I got a large pack of coffee filters from the Dollar Tree. I did not even put a dent into that pack of coffee filters either. I could make a few more projects with what is left over. I flattened the filters in half and layered them one one another until I made it all the way around.
I had some leftover fabric and jute from other projects. I was about to make some fabric flowers using the tutorial provided by Ruffles and Stuff. Then I cut out some pennants for the garland across the back. I won some fabulous twine from the The Twinery through a fantastic giveaway a few weeks ago from Audra at The Kurtz Corner, so I made little bows to go on each of the pennants across the wreath.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. We are having a beautiful one here in Maryland.
Here are the parties that we try and link up our projects to on a weekly basis. We may not get to all of them, but they all are great hostesses.
