Décor on a Dime: My new favorite wreath!

I posted pictures of this wreath in my eat-in kitchen redo and left you in suspense of what it was made of other than supplies from the dollar store and the grocery store.


Some of you commented and said that you thought it was made of coffee filters and…… you are RIGHT! :)

I saw the idea on The Little Brown House and loved it!

I bought a foam wreath from Dollar Tree and a pack of 200 brown coffee filters from Publix for $0.79.


Most of the tutorials that I read said to use floral pins but they were about $4 for less than 100 and I needed something cheaper!  Hmmm…how about hot glue?  It worked perfectly! 

There isn’t really any wrong or right away to go about this – just dab a dot of glue on the wreath and then crinkle the middle of the coffee filter a little and attach to the glue.  Add more glue if you need and keep adding coffee filters to fill in all the spaces.  I left the back of the wreath plain so it would lay flat against the wall.


Attach a bow if you wish, and a ribbon to hang it with and you are all done!  100_4569

For less than $2 bucks you have an adorable wreath (and a conversation starter too! :)  You could also make one with white coffee filters or dye/paint white coffee filters to whatever color you want.


I think it adds the perfect touch to my eat-in kitchen!


I have 1/2 of the package of coffee filters left, so I think another wreath is in store to hang in front of a mirror in my dining room. :)

Come back tomorrow when I will share the tutorial on how I made my pumpkin topiary that you see on the table.  And I will also be having a link up party for everyone to link up their fall décor! 

Enjoy reading this post?  Get inspired by more of my Décor on a Dime projects and room makeovers.


  1. Awesome .. super easy! :-) You know .. I went and looked at the post from the person you found it .. and ... hot glue is WAY more up my alley. :-)

    With it being that cheap - so will be making one! :-) Can't wait for the pumpkin tut! :-)

  2. Love this! I like how you used hot glue instead of the pins, too. Good suggestion.

    Beautiful and frugal - my favorite combination :-)

  3. I love this ! So easy. I love to do crafts. Can not wait for more.

  4. Hi! I made one and it is so easy and turned out so nice. I used pins, because I already had them and I used a straw wreath, because I had one of those, too. I just need to get some ribbon for a bow, as I want to add just a little color to it!

    Do you have any ideas on making one at Christmas with white coffee filters?

    Thanks, Carla

  5. Carla - thats a great idea! I bet it would be fun for a kids project too! use white coffee filters and maybe spray them with glitter? yay!

  6. Thanks for this great idea! I'm suggesting this for our ladies' craft get together. Easy and cheap!

  7. Looks great and I love the idea to spray it with glitter spray!

  8. This was one of my favorite projects from last week's Mad Skills party, and I will be featuring it on my blog today.


  9. Oh, this is beautiful, simply gorgeous! I love the brown coffee filters you used, and the contrast of it with the ribbon! I have everything I need for this, and can't wait to try it! Thanks so much for sharing this! :)

  10. Thanks everyone!

    This really is my FAVORITE wreath! I just love looking it at as I look into the kitchen. It is so cute! and knowing that it cost less than $2 makes it even better.

    If you made a wreath, I would love to see pictures!

    And don't worry, I am already trying to think of Christmas ideas. Haven't come up with a definite idea yet but I will share as soon as I do! :)

  11. If you haven't already, you should submit this to DollarStoreCrafts.com!

  12. I made homemade pom-poms for my little niece by dying white coffee filter bright colors and then cutting then strips close to the insides of the filter. So easy....she loved them!
    I imagine you could do the same to dye these...I found an Easter egg dye kit on clearance and it worked great. Also, I bet if you only have white filters, and don't mind the aroma of coffee, you could dye your own filters brown with strongly brewed coffee! :o)

  16. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog
    soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    the mechanic down the road and it cost you a fair amount of money.
