Valentines day is fast approaching, and I just realized that I have not shared any Valentine’s post yet. I guess I was busy with our dining room “makeover” that was very spontaneous and turned out great. If you missed seeing it, check out how we hacked a simple IKEA shelving unit.

Today I am sharing how you can make this gorgeous watercolor coffee paper wreath and turn it into a lovely Valentine wreath for your front door.
All you need is:
-wreath base- foam
– sew pins
-1 package coffee filter
– paint brush
I mentioned here on the blog before that I can not put anything on my front door that was made with a hot glue gun as our front door gets lots of sunshine during the da. Projects that were made with hot glue would fall apart in half a day.
For this wreath, I used pins to secure the coffee filter to the wreath base so I can hang it on my front door.
I folded the coffee filters half, then folded half again.
Then I hold 2-3 folded coffee filters together, kind of like formed a little “flower” and pinned it to the wreath base with my sew pin.
It was pretty quick to pin the wreath base entirely with my pretty “flowers.”
I made sure that the “flowers” were pinned on evenly, and the edges were nice and round.
Then I painted the wreath with red watercolor. I brushed the top of the wreath slowly, almost just touching the top of the coffee filter.
What can I say? All I needed some music and a glass of wine to finish my little painting project:-)
Once the RED color was dry, it was faded a bit and turned to this lighter, almost pinkish color. I wanted to add a little bit of extra color, and I painted another, darker coat on some spots to make this two toned look.
Stunning, don’t you think? And how easy it is to pull this lovely wreath together.:-)
..and this is how it looks on the front door…
