Coffee Filter Halloween Wreath DIY

My friend Bethany had a baby about two months ago and she somehow managed to whip up a little Halloween DIY with a newborn. She is one of the craftiest people I know (she actually handmade my homecoming dress my senior year of high school), so I could totally see her nursing a baby and crafting at the same time. In fact, her mother is really the craftiest person I know. I used to love going to Bethany’s house as a kid and doing crafts with her and her mother.

This is very easy wreath to make and affordable as well! Read on to find out how to make it.

To make this wreath you need:

  • some sort of wreath to start out with,  either a wooden twig one or Styrofoam one will work
  • white coffee filters, one big box will be enough for a regular sized wreath
  • food dye and water

To dye the filters you dunk them in a bowl of food dye and water. The more dye you add the brighter the color will be. Let them stand in the water about 5 minutes.

Then lay them out to dry overnight. She said she tried to dry them in her dryer and it worked, only took 10 minutes, BUT it turned the inside of her dryer orange and she had to wipe it down with bleach to get it out…, she recommends just sticking with laying them out overnight to dry.

Then crinkle them up a bit and hot glue them to your wreath. Keep going until you are all done! I love the candy corn version Bethany did, but black and orange would be really cute too.

Thanks so much for sharing Bethany! So excited to be back in Savannah soon and come visit!

    Hi Stephanie! Love this wreath. Quick question, instead of using a twig wreath, could I just cut some cardboard to make a wreath?
