Coffee Filter Wreath

I saw this idea in blogland, making a wreath from coffee filters. I've never made a wreath, but you know the coffee part sucked me in. ;)

Oh wow, here is the original tutorial for the wreath from The Little Brown House. Apparently there is a system to doing this. I just crumpled up the filters and hot glued them on. Then I had to touch-up hot glue the filters to each other in certain spots because they were flailing too far, ha, ha!!! I suggest actually reading the directions. ;)

This is the silly door in our kitchen that leads to the garage. A big window? Yeah, not sure. It was there when we moved in and replacing it with a different door is definitely on my list. In the meantime, I gave the door a much needed coat of white paint and I painted the window white on the garage side. Then I knew I wanted to decorate on the window somehow. Until I get a new door, I'm sure this window will be the site of many interesting decorations to make it look better. ;)

For the ribbon, I used wide brown stitched grosgrain from SU's Clearance Blitz! Ten yards for $2.99. Woohoo!!!

The Clearance Blitz continues through Monday. Orders have to be placed online. If I am your demo, make sure to choose me as your demo to get the preferred price.

This is so cute, love the window in the door. it's the perfect framing for a wreath all year round. Think about it. Spring wreath of flowers or spring colors, summer, fall, winter. It's so cute. Love the wreath and using coffee filters is so great. LOVE the ribbon you used.
