DIY To Tie-Dye For: Make A Summer Tie-Dye Coffee Filter Wreath
Homesessive Contributor Tatertots and Jello shares the perfect tie-dye DIY for summer fun. Turn this project into a crafternoon full of friends and family.
Great to make for a birthday party. You can tie dye the coffee filters in ANY colors – so you can coordinate it with colors from your party.
- Wreath form (I got mine from the Dollar Store)
- Ribbon or Duct Tape to wrap around the wreath.
- About 80-100 Coffee Filters.
- Tie-Dye kit (I used one from Tulip/I Love To Create)
Another thing I love about this wreath is how light it is. You can hang it anywhere!
- Be sure to wear plastic gloves.
- Wrap the wreath form with ribbon or duct tape.
- Wrap the coffee filters with rubber bands and squirt at least 2-3 colors of dye on the filters. Dye the coffee filters with dye and let them dry out.
- Separate the tie dyed filters and then scrunch each one up and hot glue them to the wreath form.
- I put one row of filters around the top of the form.
- Then another row on the outside edge of the form.
- And then a third of the filters around the outside of the wreath form.
- I didn’t add a layer of filters to the inside of the form, since the wreath form was so small and I didn’t want to crowd the inside of the form. I fluffed up the coffee filters when I had them all glued on to make the wreath look even. I also used a pair scissors to trim a few of the edges to shape the wreath.
- Then I hot glued a ribbon to the back of the wreath so I could hang it up.
- The last thing I did was I added a bow to the front with three coordinating ribbon colors.
