Christmas Coffee Filter Wreath

Started another wreath today! Really loving wreaths! This time, I am still using the good old pool noodle from Dollarama, but I am using coffee filters for the ruffles! I attached the two ends of the pool noodle with packing tape (that would be the clear stuff). Then I took some strips of old fabric {I had some old flannel with purple-ey patterns and swirls} and wrapped and glued and glued and wrapped until there was no pink showing thru! Here is my wreath as of today...

I ran out of the recycled {brown} coffee filters & glue stix! I know, how can I run out of glue stix?! It's absurd! 

Inspire Me: 
The first place I found inspiration was at Fox Hollow Cottage where Shannon does AMAZING projects! Make sure to head on over and check out her blog! Here is her gorgeous wreath!

The second place I found inspiration is the lovely Martha Stewart. I found her vid on YouTube.

So I kinda smooshed the two sets of steps together and used what worked the best for me, {and my poor fingers that are always getting glue gun burns!}

I have a ways to go yet! Gotta find some glue and more brown filters! But, now I think I know what I am doing and am getting giddy thinking of ways to embellish these guys! Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help you out...if I can! :D

As always...
~happy crafting!~
