Coffee Filter Flower Wreath Craft


Hi, Friends, I am coming to you today from my side yard. It’s a beautiful spring day and I am loving being out in the fresh air! These flowers are a fun way to celebrate the season and you can also use them to make a great handmade gift!

Check out the step by step instructions below.

You will need a few supplies for this fun and simple craft. I am including the supplies to make the entire wreath. If you just want to make the flowers, you can omit the raffia and the hoop.

How to Make Coffee Filter Flowers

The flowers are really quite simple to make. You can vary the size of the flowers by the number of filters you use for each flower. You can also trim the filters and make them smaller.


  1. First, fold the coffee filter in half.

5. Make as many flowers as you want. I used two filters for the smaller flowers and three filters for the larger flowers.

6. At this point, you can attach to pipe cleaners if you want to make standing flowers for a vase. But if you are making the wreath, the next step is to add the greenery. Attach the 2 pieces of greenery to the wreath leaving a few inches of space in between.
