Christmas in July Guest Lisa with Recaptured Charm

Our first guest post in the Christmas in July series comes from the amazing Lisa of Recaptured Charm.  I am so excited to have her here today.  Her blog is full of amazing tutorials and decor ideas.  Lisa chose to share with y’all her GORGEOUS Coffee Filter Christmas Wreath tutorial!

This simple wreath didn’t start out so simple.
I wanted the filters to be green.  I used different paints but I didn’t like the way they looked.  I tried dying them with food color but I didn’t like that either. Several attempts later, I gave up and the filters stayed white.
The materials required couldn’t be easier to get.
A Styrofoam wreath form, about 200 coffee filters, hot glue and decorations of your choice.

Run the filter through your hand to make a flower, flatten the bottom and apply hot glue.

Start gluing to the inside of the wreath and work your way out.

No need to go all the way around. Leave the back as flat as you can.

  1. An absolute show- stopper. I think my lil’ heart missed a beat when I saw the wreath in all its enormous beauty!
    Just the kind of centerpiece I would happily decorate the whole room around.

  2. Ami,I pinned it on Pinterest and it’s already been repinned! LOL I have a lot of Christmas on my Pinterest, but not a nice tutorial like this.

  3. I’ve only been adding one simple ornament to my coffee filter wreath, but I love Lisa’s version, and will be adding a bit more bling this year!
