Good Morning!! How are you all doing today?? Are you keeping busy?? I sure am. I am doing the flowers for a reception next Saturday, and still working on our son’s wedding luncheon/dinner. Fun times.
I am excited to share with you both events and how they turn out. Each wedding is going to be quite beautiful with such lovely colors.
All around blogland, you will see a coffee filter wreath. Some are tea dyed, some are just white. Some tutorials will tell you to use a screw driver to poke your coffee filter in. Others will advise you to use a glue gun.
I decided to try one for myself. I bought 2 packages of coffee filters at the dollar store and purchased my 18 inch wreath at Michaels. I was ready to go…
About 1/3 of the way through(which took me about an hour) of using the screw driver method, I opted to try the glue gun method to see if it would be any faster. No, it was not faster. (It was okay though-I watched DC Cupcakes on Netflix while I worked)
But I did like the look better. When I was almost done I added a 28 gauge wire as a hanger for my new wreath. Easy. I used almost every single coffee filter-320 in all, 4 glue sticks, along with a couple of blisters (Yowza!)
Anyone that has ever made a coffee filter wreath-I tip my hat to you. It is not a quick project. It takes time and precision to make your wreath look full and balanced. So, if you are looking for a quick project-this is not it.
Worth it, yes!
Let me know if you have attempted a coffee filter wreath. What was the method that worked best for you?
