Okay folks, this craft is going to blow your mind. It’s so easy and SO PRETTY. It’s also crazy inexpensive and there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll have all the items on hand already.

  • If you’re fine with a solid white wreath, this is a great place to stop!
  • Personally, I’m adding touches of gold to my holiday decorating
  • If you have any craft paint and sponges lying around, you can add this finishing touch for free. My paint is from the dollar store so it’s a minimal addition.

  • Using a sponge brush, lightly highlight the tips of the filters with your paint

Happy Handmade Holidays!

  1. Oh my word!! This is awesome. I didn’t even know glue tape was a thing!

    Gorgeous!

    Are you worried the filters will begin to rain down over time? Or is everything sticking perfectly?

    I want to make one. So neat!

    • When I was in the “fluffing” stage, a few came loose and I just stuck them back on. I think that has to do with pre-taping too long of a strip before sticking the filters on. Otherwise, they are on there for the long haul! It’s delicate because it’s just paper but the filters are adhered quite firmly. Nothing would knock them off at this point.

      You should make one! The whole thing only took an hour, including drying time.
