WATERCOLORED COFFEE FILTER WREATH
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. DIY RECLAIMED WOOD BUFFET- IKEA HACK
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…

I’m not sure how you pinned the two or three filters on the wreath. Did you pin the side of them? Could you show a picture of that step, it would help me out alot.
This is sooo inspiring!
I have to ask, where did you find and the cost of that green round thingy?? Lol
How long did this take?
I bought it at a craft store probably:-) It was a good night time craft, took maybe a good hour all together (max):-)
I love this! How long did it take to get all of the coffee filters on???
Did the rain ruin this wreath at all? I really want to make one but am afraid that the weather will completely ruin it the first time that it rains!
I love this and can’t wait to make one or more. What size was the foam wreath that you used?
Thank you very much for this inspiration.
What I really like about this project is it can be designed for all four seasons and various holidays. So easy and inexpensive. I would use a heart shaped foam base for VDay though.
