Coffee Filter Crafting

Recently I shared with you my polka-dotted coffee filter wreath I made to hang in my kitchen. (You can read about it here.) Well I continued on in my coffee filter crafting and created the natural wreath shown above using unbleached coffee filters this time. You can tea-stain white filters too if you can't find the unbleached ones. Tea-staining will create a lighter natural colored filter.
Well, I just couldn't stop there - I was on a coffee filter roll! In Christy Tomlinson's 12 Artsy Ornaments of Christmas e-course, one of the projects was to make a topiary tree using a styrofoam cone base and covering it with beautiful silk bridal flowers. I didn't have access to those flowers, so I improvised a little and used the natural coffee filters instead.
This natural tree actually goes much better with my home's decor anyway. Instead of putting the tree in a flower pot, as the class suggested, I simply placed it on a round gift box I had bought at my favorite go-to store, HomeGoods.
I felt the tree needed a tiny bit of sparkle, so I found this glittery gold star pick at JoAnn Fabrics and attached it to the top of the tree.
Signature w/rose
