A Gorgeous Coffee Filter Wreath DIY

There are a lot of tutorials on making a coffee filter wreath but you can tell they’re filters.  This DIY project doesn’t have that look.  You can use any variety of colors that you like.  A wreath that is all white with some filter roses is beautiful.  Thanks to Lovely Crafty Home for the idea.

I was inspired by this totally gorgeous wreath at Jones Design Company.

I wanted to make mine more all-season friendly, so I decided to leave out the berries and such and use more muted colors. As for the method, I didn’t take any actual pictures during the process because I was sort of making it up (shocker, no?). I chose 3 pink paint colors (Folk Art, from AC Moore)-which I diluted and/or mixed until I got a color I liked. I had 3 plastic cups that I mixed various colors in. Then I dunked each filter in a color, squeezed it out, and hung it up to dry. I’d add brown or more pink to change the color of the paint water as I continued dying the filters. For the light creamy ones, I used strong brewed tea. To get a cool natural gradient look you can use a paint brush to dab different colors on the edges of the filter.
