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.

Materials:

  • 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!

Instructions:

  1. Be sure to wear plastic gloves.
  2. Wrap the wreath form with ribbon or duct tape.
  3. 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.
  4. Separate the tie dyed filters and then  scrunch each one up and hot glue them to the wreath form.
  5. I put one row of filters around the top of the form.
  6. Then another row on the outside edge of the form.
  7. And then a third of the filters around the outside of the wreath form.
  8. 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.
  9. Then I hot glued a ribbon to the back of the wreath so I could hang it up.
  10. The last thing I did was I added a bow to the front with three coordinating ribbon colors.
