Sweethearts

I saw a craft online recently from the dollar store so I thought I would try it. The post showed a round wreath made from coffee filters. I decided to make it a little more for Valentines Day so I used a heart shaped wreath ring. I think it turned out pretty cute! I may add a little bow or something to create a pop of color. Sure does look like carnations doesn’t it? If you have any suggestions for a spark of color send me a comment!

Here are the steps if you want try one. It’s only $3.00 to make plus some hot glue. You’ll need a wire form, a roll of burlap ribbon, and a package of coffee filters.

Wrap the burlap around the frame and hot glue at the end of the ribbon.

Next form a filter into a flower shape and glue one by one to desired fullness.

Repeat until you make it all the way around!

And voila!!

You can vary your burlap color if you want make it for a different result such as green for St. Patty’s or regular brown burlap for an everyday farmhouse look. I think my next try will be to dip the edges on a ink pad to get that variegated carnation look. I’m thinking pink or red!

So give it a try! Share a pic or feel free to ask questions if you like. Thanks for stopping by!
