my fall wreath

http://makinmyaptahome.com/2013/09/my-fall-wreath.html
I did it I finally made my first coffee filter wreath.  It’s my fall wreath.  I’ve been drooling over them out there in blog land for about a year.  And don’t even get me started on all the ones out there in pinterest.  There such beauties I can’t stand it.  I’ve been drooling I tell you.  I knew it seemed easy enough so I waited till I found this little thrifty find…

and I knew right away this was going to be my beauty
I ran out to my local dollar store and picked up these supplies

  • stapler
  • staples
  • 3 packs of coffee filters
  • sprig of fall

after getting a few done you just squeeze them together and add more I wanted it very fluffy & tight so added as much as the wire would let me squeeze in.  IMG_6107

    You did a great job and it looks much less painful than using hot glue! : )

    It turned out beautifully! There are so many ways to make them, but I’ve never seen them made the way you did yours. I made one in February and kept it on the mirror on my mantel for months — I just never get tired of looking at it. Mine has moved to another location now but has a bit of a Fall look to it, too. I really like the pop of oranges against the creamy white of the wreath — great job!

  7. Oh, girl! It looks so good! 🙂 It’s so full & pretty… LOVE IT! Thanks so much for linking it up at Tips & Tricks… you rock!
