Coffee Filter Wreath DIY

So I came across coffee filter wreaths that are all over blog land and thought they would be perfect to sell at the Hyde Park UMC Alternative Gift Market in December
I also thought it would be a great DIY for the Holidays.

CAUTION: You will burn your fingers... If you want to buy one from Salty Sisters they are for sale starting at $20.

Coffee Filters

Place coffee filters into either coffee water or tea water and let soak for an hour or so until they have been dyed to the desired color.

Take coffee filters and wring out the water and set out to dry, you can also put them on a cookie sheet in a thin layer and bake at 220 degrees for 10 minutes.

take a filter and pinch at the middle and glue to wreath form. For fuller rosettes, layer 4 or 5 together to make larger rosettes.
This wreath was made with rosettes that were layered with 5 filters and glued around the wreath form in 2 rows.

This is an easy project it just was some time consuming steps, I stained the filters and did other things around the house in the down time so it wasn't too bad... and now I have a bajillion coffee filters to make wreaths with.
