Let’s have a moment of silence…because my coffee maker has taken a turn for the worse. No matter how much coffee I put in, or how strong I brew it, it comes out tasting super watery. Sad day, my friends. This girl loves her cup of joe.
Let’s take this $1.00 Goodwill wreath…
and some lone filters…
and make something fun. Ready?
First, I wrapped the wreath in white ribbon. If I was using a cardboard or styrofoam wreath, it wouldn’t matter. But, I wanted something solid to glue my filters to. Ignore the fuzzy picture–not sure what’s up with that.
I do not like burning my fingers (I mean, who does?), so this is a little trick I read online. Place a sharpie inside of the filter and dab your hot glue on the end, holding the sharpie.
Place the glue on the wreath and hold for a few seconds. I started with the front, then moved to the inside and the sides.
Right now it looks like a bridal veil from the 80’s. Keep going…
until you have this!
It’s so fluffy! I love it! And, I love it even more because it is made of coffee filters–near and dear to my heart.
I would say that I probably used around 200-250 filters–worth every one. Now, if someone would like to bring me coffee. Every day.
Enjoying the Good Life,
