How do you make a coffee filter wreath?

How do you make a coffee filter wreath?
Today I am sharing how to make a Coffee filter wreath. Step by step instuctions.
Of course, I followed no instructions and/or tutorials! I just winged it, and I am so happy I did!
{I am starting my newbie party early as we are on the road today,and I will not be home til late}

I started with this mini grapevine wreath that I had on my pantry door.  This one had lemons and bay leaves on it.  I liked the checked ribbon and I thought with Valentines day coming this would work.

If you are looking for a how to, or tutorial, you are at the wrong place.
All I can tell you is I folded the coffee filter in half, then in half again.  I used my hot glue gun to adhere them to the grapevine, then I poofed them out, and hot glued here and there to bring them together.
Bad TUT, I know!

I am just so stinkin proud of myself over this thing!
It really was simple, and look how cute it is.

Spreading some Valentines here and there and will share more soon.
The nice thing about this wreath is I can use it all year and just add a different embellishment to the checked ribbon if I like.

Let's get this newbie party started!


*Blogging 6 months or less and or less than 100 followers.
*Would love for you to become a new friend of mine as well on google friend connect.
*PLEASE turn off Word verification, makes commenting very difficult, and you do not need it.
Blogger does a great job of deterring spam comments.
*PLEASE visit a few other participants, that is what you are here for! 
*IF you find your link deleted, it is simply because you did not follow my simple guidelines.  
*PLEASE add my link or button to your blog and/or post.
Please limit your links to two per newbie party.
thank you.
I would also like to mention, that we all should be watermarking our photo's.  Which basically means, add your name or blog name to each photo.  With pinterest on the rise in popularity, I see many pins out there with no name.
Do realize any party you link up to, gives people free reign to pin away, which is great, however, no name on the photo, no credit.  I always source out my features and I try only to feature ones with your names on them, that is for your benefit. Even though the pin may lead back to my original post, people would clearly see it was your work, with a link back to YOUR blog.

How cute and unique from all the rest, just like you!! I am working on a brown one now as a gift for a co-workers birthday. My son asked if those were "used" coffee filters. After I stopped laughing, I told him that you can buy them that color! Too cute! Have a great week!

This is GORGEOUS, Debbie. How did you do those filters. The ribbon is perfect!

Re the water marking, that doesn't help as my hubby actually has shown me how they can be removed ... that is why I don't both to watermark anymore.
Have a lovely day ~

I don't have any idea how to put my name on my photos, but I am interested in learning because a lot of traffic on my blog is from Google Image searches. Do you think you could connect me to info on how to do that? Thanks!

Oh, you Debbie Debbie Doo girl,
You sure do keep me hoppin'....first I had to get on the trail of those cute Walmart lampshades...finally snagged some for my daughter and I....then it was trying to keep up with you on tablesettings...then, I have to MAKE SURE to do a monthly Copy Cat Challenge....then, I was out lookin' for those pallet things...never did locate one...shoot..!!, I am planning to make a wreath as soon as the sun rises in the morning. Oh, How I dread it...I get multiple burns when I take my glue gun our of the holster...but, worth every one if my wreath will only look like yours....soooo cute.And besides all that, I want my hair to look just like YOUR hair in that header and there is NO WAY it's gonna happen....:)))) Some dreams just never come true. :(

Debbie, I love your wreath! The checked ribbon looks so pretty!
But,the first thing that caught my eye is the stencil on your pantry door! I just love it and can't stop thinking about it! LOL I hope you don't mind that I copy this from you, AGAIN! LOL
It is so pretty! By the way, I have two of those Fleur de Lis wreath holders. Don't you love them?
Thank you for the advise on
watermarking our photos. Mine are not that great but I am going to do some research on how to do that.
