DIY Holiday Wreath

Nesting has kicked in, however in the form of crafting. I am craft crazed. Seriously.

Sadly, Matt and I just returned from a funeral for his uncle. It was a beautiful service, honoring an amazing man I am proud to have known. Hundreds of people came to show their support. He just understood life, one of the people that just "got it". 

The upside of funerals is the opportunity to spend quality time with the fam jam. I was able to meet one of the cousins and she is my new crafting inspiration. She taught me how to make the cutest holiday wreath you will ever see. 



Doesn't this little gem look like something you would get from Anthro? The ribbon is interchangeable for the season. And how cute is it to hang wreaths on mirrors? Love it all.

I take it you want to know how to make your own, so I'm going to tell you.

Materials:

-Metal wreath form
-Ribbon
-200 brown coffee filters
-Black Sharpie
-Hot glue gun

Directions:

1) Wrap metal form with ribbon, attaching it with glue.
2) Color the edges of coffee filters black with Sharpie
3) Take one filter. Pinch the bottom, middle part of the filter and scrunch together so it makes a triangle shape...does that make sense? (sorry I don't have pictures)
4) Put glue on the bottom tip and glue it onto ribbon on wreath form
5) Overlap about 3 to 4 filters in one row
6) Repeat steps 3-5 until entire wreath filled
7) Finish wreath by tieing a coordinating bow
8) Hang somewhere you can proudly enjoy your new creation!

Grand total of this amazing wreath...

$5!!!

Best 5 bucks I've ever spent.
