Simple Coffee Filter Wreath – Inexpensive and Beautiful!

coffee-filter-wreath

This simple coffee filter wreath is one of my favorite crafts I’ve ever made for the Holidays. It was free to me (because I inherited the coffee filters from someone who used to live in the house I moved into) but would be VERY inexpensive to make, even if you had to purchase all the supplies specifically for this project. It turns out gorgeous, even if you are a terrible crafter such as myself.

Really, I don’t think you can screw this one up.

So lets get started!

Supplies

  • Coffee Filters
  • Old cardboard (cereal box, moving box, whatever!)
  • Glue (I used Elmer’s because I had it but I think hot glue would work better.)
  • Two circles of different sizes to trace around…unless  you are an amazing circle drawer.
  • Scissors or Utility Knife
  • Optional: Ribbon
  • Optional: Beads, Glitter, Greenery, Embellishments

Dresser Before and After – Behold the Beauty!

So this is a pretty old project but it’s one I still love. (Honestly, let me begin by apologizing for less than amazing pictures. I took them for me, not for the world. I didn’t blog back then.) It was my first time using milk paint and my first time working on a huge project like this. That means, there are a few rookie mistakes (like a less than stellar job of distressing.). That also means I can help you avoid some of those. 🙂

I found these before and after pictures from several years ago and thought I needed to share this quick and cheap trick for fixing worn wood with you. I have other products I have tried and like but none of them are as cheap or as handy as this! While I no longer have hardwood floors, I found this actually works best on furniture or doors/walls or wooden decorations. I learned after this day that it only lasts through one washing so using it on things that won’t be frequently washed or receive a lot of wear is the best way to use this method.  I never did find a permanent fix for those floors without a full refinish. The doors looked just as good the day I moved out as they did in this post though. Now, proceed to witness the magic.
