Hey there! Its Sara from Twelve On Main. I am excited to be here today to show you a fun little craft that will be perfect for Valentines Day.
DIY Coffee Filter Valentines Wreath
I have always wanted to make a coffee filter wreath. Its always been on my radar, but I’ve always been too busy with other projects. I thought this would be the perfect time to start one. This DIY coffee filter Valentines wreath is a sweet addition to your home for Valentines day.
Here are the items you will need for this Valentines wreath:
- piece of cardboard
- Xacto knife
- coffee filter
- hot glue gun
The first step to making this wreath is to cut out a heart from the cardboard. I took the top of a cardboard box I had lying around. It is now time to draw the heart onto the cardboard.
I cut the heart out with my Xacto knife.
The next step is to poke holes in the cardboard heart with a pencil. I did it in a alternate pattern. This is where you will be putting the coffee filters.
I took the eraser end of the pencil, and wrapped the filter around it.
I then twisted the end tightly and fed it through one of the holes, carefully not to tear the cardboard.
On the back side, I put a dab of hot glue around the hole to hold the filter in place.
Continue to do this until all the holes are filled. You can add extra if you feel it needs more. I spaced my holed out about ¾ inch to 1 inch apart. That gave the filters room to spread out but kept them tight together.
The last thing to do is to secure a ribbon to hang it with. I hot glued a piece of red and white twine.
This coffee filter Valentines wreath is very versatile. I kept mine white, well, because I love white and it goes wonderfully with my farmhouse decor.
You could add some embellishments such as these:
- Dry brush the edges with red paint
- Brush with glue and dust it with glitter
- Add a thicker ribbon to hang it
- Hang beads or jewels from the bottom of the heart, in a cascade.
The possibilities are endless with a craft like this. Create different shapes, make it your own!
Have a great day! If you like this post, I’d love it if you checked out some of my most popular projects!
