Fall Wreath from Coffee Filters

I’ve confessed before, I am a lazy seasonal decorator! I don’t go all out but I do like to add a few seasonal touches by replacing items in vignettes or tablescapes. The weather this week in Arkansas has felt like fall, so I was super motivated to get my craft on! I decided to work from the outside in this time and put together an easy, inexpensive wreath. Wreaths don’t have to be round! I used an old frame, coffee filters and wooden letters to create mine!

Flip the coffee filter over and scrunch together, like so: Coffee Filter Wreath by A to Z Custom Creations

I scrunch several at a time then glue them on in bunches. One at a time is maddening!

After running a line of hot glue toward the outside edge, press the scrunched end of the filter for a few seconds to adhere it.

You can get 5-10 done at a time if you’re quick!

Once you have the entire frame covered, push the filters towards the outside and start a new line.

The beauty of a coffee filter project is that each one is different. The filters can be fluffed, flattened, opened or closed. You can fill in bare spots, like this one…

…with just a little fluffing!

I covered my wooden letters with this cool, printed cork. The entire book is filled with great designs!

Cut out what you need…

Use spray adhesive {I love Aileen’s Tacky Glue} to adhere the cork then cut off the excess with a razor.

I used Glue Dots to attach the letters to the muslin fabric.

The applicator makes it quick and easy! You can also use hot glue or spray adhesive. I use Glue Dots because they are strong but can be easily removed. I’m a multipurpose gal so chances are, this wreath will say NOEL in a few months :)

I attached the muslin to the frame and a hanger to the back with hot glue.

There are so many ways you can embellish the wreath! I just used scrap items I had on hand to create a burlap flower.

This old cording was perfect for the center of the flower!

A little scrap of fabric glued to the back makes it easy to mount.

I LOVE the finished project! So easy, so inexpensive, and so unique!

I haven’t decided whether to hang it on my door or just prop the ladder up on my porch. Decisions, decisions. I’m making a few changes in the house today too, so stay tuned for those :) Smooches!
