Coffee Filter Wreath

I found this simple, frugal coffee filter wreath on The Little Brown House, and headed to The Dollar Store that same day! I absolutely love it on my teal wall!
Now that I'm looking back at her post, I realize that my wreath is lacking in cuteness. I didn't "scrunch" it at all. Hmmm. Just a minute...Scrunching and fluffing.
There we go, that's got a little more character.

So, Miss Brown House, where is your wreath-making school? I need some skills! LOL She has detailed instructions on her blog, just follow the link above. I used the same wreath base, brown coffee filters, and safety pins that she did. I'm going to try another one with white filters, but this time I'm going to use the u-shaped floral pins she refers to. If I mess with it too much, the safety pins start to come out. I'm not sure what I did wrong or how to correct this problem, but as long as it just hangs there looking pretty on the wall, I think it will be fine.

Total Cost: <$5 ($1 wreath form, $1 safety pins, $2-something for the coffee filters and I had the ribbon

I'd love to see one if you make it!

Very cute and I LOVE it on the teal wall! I love the simpleness of it and of course the cost.
