I got the tutorial here to make the wreath. I took pictures as I went along making mine.
First you need your color choices of paint. I used more colors than three but these bottles were the only ones that lined up for the photo!
Some plastic cups to mix your paint and water. I didn’t use exact measurements.
Glue gun and masking tape.
I dyed my coffee filters and hung them on the line to dry. It didn’t take long for them to dry.
I then used 3 filters to make one flower. Towards the end I used one or two when I just wanted to fill in here and there.
You fold the filter in half and then in half again. I then cut a scalloped edge at the top.
Then you cut that piece in half by cutting a scalloped edge.
Now you have 3 small circles and 3 rings. Don’t worry if you don’t cut them perfectly, after all, flowers aren’t perfect and you can always cut stragglers or points off after the flower is made if you don’t like it.
Then you take the 3 rings and twist them like you are making a figure 8.
Then you place them on a approximate 12 to 14 inch length of masking tape. This will be the center of your flower.
Next you take the rings and attach them to the tape by making pleats as you go.
Now you start at the end where you placed what will be the center of the flower, and you start rolling it up forming the flower as you go.
You can use a foam or any wreath form to hot glue your flowers on. I chose a grapevine wreath as I thought it would be easier to work with and hang.
Just glue on your flowers however you want with the hot glue gun. Make sure you put something down to protect the surface you are working on as the hot glue gets over everything, fingers included!!
And there you have it! You can just hang it like this or you can hang it by attaching a ribbon with a bow.
It was not hard to make, just a little time consuming.
