Watercolor coffee filter flower wreath

Watercolor is everywhere these days, and I have no problem with it. I love the soft, muted yet still bold designs it cane bring to your designs. So when I needed something new to bring some style to my boring, white front door, watercolor is what I thought of first.

Here’s what you’ll need . . .

And here’s how I did it . . .

First you need to get your coffee filters painted. I tried 2 different methods. The first one was a wet paint brush dipped in the paint. You can paint any design you want! Have fun with it! The second method was the easiest. I put a little paint and a little water in a bowl. Then I sat the entire coffee filter inside so it was fully covered.

Once all your coffee filters are painted and dried, it’s time to make the flowers! First fold your coffee filter in half long ways (like a hot dog). Then fold it half side ways (like a hamburger), and repeat. Twist the bottom a little to make a sort of stem and fluff out the ‘petals’.

A little hot glue or a little string (wrapped around the ‘stems’) will attach them to your wreath. Then you’re all set to enjoy new wreath!
