A Bit of Fun on Friday!

A few years ago, I made a book wreath.  After friends saw the wreath, they wanted wreaths made.  I made enough book wreaths that I didn’t care if I never made another wreath of any kind.  Until now.  I was skimming through Pinterest, not looking for anything in particular, when this coffee filter wreath popped up.  We’ve been doing lots of working and not so much “funning” at the new house, and Friday seemed like as good a day as any to do something fast and pretty!

With steps that sounded MUCH simpler than my book wreaths and a shopping list that totaled $2, I was willing to give this wreath a try.  My grandmother drove up to my house to make note cards with my kids, so I thought I’d have my own craft time during theirs!

Start to finish, the wreath took two hours to make, instead of the original poster’s one, which I’m sure has nothing to do with my four year old taking the filters to pretend they were hats or cupcake liners or to see how they float down to the floor when you drop them.  I still need to buy the ribbon to hang it, but I like!  It’s going to look great in the foyer!  (I’ve been picking up and changing up some furniture for the foyer, so I can’t wait to show off the finished room!)
