Ruffle Wreath

I think I'm the last crafter on the planet that hasn't jumped on the coffee filter wreath bandwagon.

The Nester made this gorgeous wreath.

Then Kimba at A Soft Place to Land made this one with natural coffee filters.

Fashionably late, I'm on the bandwagon now but with a twist. I made mine into ruffles. I started by folding my coffee filters in half, then half again. I guess this would be quarters, right?



I hot glued the first one down then I started hot gluing them about 3/4" up from the last.


It is kind of hard to work around a circle, but just keep going. It'll work out.

I looped a wide grosgrain ribbon around the wreath form so I didn't squash any of the ruffles.



If you haven't made a filter wreath yet, try this one. It's easy peasy and takes way less time than the other versions!

Check out the link parties where I'm sharing this week!

Oooh, I love this idea! I think I could do this one and it doesn't take all weekend! Thanks for sharing it.

That was the appeal for me too, Vickie! I'm way to ADD for a project that takes 3 hours.

Looks great. I want to make a wreath but got no time. Your wreath looks great and looks like it would take no time at all.

Very cute, I really like the simplicty of it and I didn't know until you said so that it was coffee filters!

Cute. I haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, so I guess you weren't the last blogger. :)

I love it..and am going to make one! This one looks like it could be pinned down with florist pins for those of us who don't play well with glue guns:)

Hi Kristy! I stumbled upon your blog a couple of weeks ago, love!! I actually used your tutorial to make this wreath, but put my own spin on it. Here's the link (which includes a shout to you) if you'd like to stop by and check it out http://bit.ly/HOPVww
