A lazy summer day, a box of art supplies an idea and a few fun hours spent being creative. A homemade wreath made from coffee filters, is a simple idea using a few supplies. From a distance you won’t notice this was made from coffee filters. My daughter had so much fun making this project.
All the supplies we used.
I decorated the filters with markers and my 7 year old used pencil crayon which created a softer look. After coloring the filters we layered two filters together using a dab of glue in the center of one filter and layered the other filter on top with a little scrunching it looked more like a flower.
I used an old square cork board, and thumb tacks to hold each flower in place. We began to place our finished flower filters (not being too neat) covering entire cork board, next we attached string to the back of cork board to be hung on the door.
The end result
The finishing touch – my daughter wrote the word summer in the center of the wreath. Now she has ideas for all the seasons and holidays, its never ending!
– Have fun creating your own!
