Coffee Filter Wreath for Spring

It doesn't feel like spring anymore outside but we're going to change that today but making a wreath for our door! 

These colors are sure to brighten your day! 

What you'll need 

  • paper plate
  • coffee filters
  • food coloring
  • paint pallet
  • paintbrushes
  • newspapers (to protect your work surface)
  • hole punch
  • stapler
  • ribbon for hanging

First we used the food coloring to make water paint in your paint pallet. 

Josiah colored the coffee filters until he couldn't anymore..(this was a two day process since we needed about 16) We let them dry. It only took about an hour to fully dry. 

He had a lot of fun mixing and making new colors.

After the filters are dry we cut the paper plate and punch holes. I punched four holes near each other to make a big hole. 

You can either do this for your child or let him/her do this. I actually did this last and by that time Josiah's attention span was done. So I just finished this for him by scrunching the paper in the holes and stapling them in place.

Add the string/ ribbon to hang your wreath up and your all set! 


Keep up with me & Let me know your here!
