Today I will be showing you how to make a coffee filter wreath for a beautiful look with very little money!
I love having a wreath on my front door and I especially love changing them for the different holidays and seasons. I created this wreath out of coffee filters! It’s so big and fluffy I just love it.
My house is a very dark color and all the landscaping is dark so adding a touch of white really pops. I really like to put this one up during the winter, taking my cue from all the snow on the ground!

How to Make a Coffee Filter Wreath
Here is what you need:
- coffee filters – You can pick these up at the grocery store or order them here on Amazon.
- foam wreath – You want a larger wreath, this one is 17 inches in diameter.
- hot glue and hot glue gun – Everyone should have a glue gun. I use mine all the time, so do my kids.
Assemble the Coffee Filter Wreath
Take a filter, stick a pencil in the center of it and wrap the filter around the pencil.
Put hot glue on the tip of the pencil and put it on the foam wreath. Use the eraser end of the pencil not the pointy part….that way it doesn’t break the filter.
Remove the pencil from the wreath and repeat.
Continue working your way around the foam wreath. Make sure you don’t try to put them too close together. I found that there needed to be just a little space in between coffee filters. Otherwise, it gets too full and it won’t look right.
Make sure you get the inside and outside of the foam wreath.
It’s almost done here…I ran out of filters! I think I used between 200-250.
Warning! Please be careful that you don’t burn yourself with hot glue. I burnt my finger when the glue dripped. Not gonna lie, it hurt!!!!!
And here is the finished product!
I made some updates to my front porch. I painted the front door Sherwin Williams Urban Bronze, added a layered rug and a bench. Then I built these front porch planters where I put ferns in during the summer months.
I love the way the wreath pops on the front of my house. All of the homes in my area were built to blend in with the natural surroundings so having the pop of white really makes my house stand out.
This is my go-to wreath for Winter. I love decorating with whites in Winter. Why not, mother nature does! Check out my post on 9 ways to incorporate winter white in your home decor.
