Coffee Filter Wreath

I saw this wreath over at Dearest Home, and just had to create one myself!  She gives the best tutorial on it!  All you need are brown coffee filters, round Styrofoam wreath, florist pins, ribbon and 2 command strips.  She says you can also use hot glue, but I didn't feel like burning the tips of my fingers hundred's of times!  So, I opted for florist pins. 






I am so pleased with how it turned out!  It was super easy and actually fun to do!  I hung the ribbon on the back of the pantry door with 1 command strip.  I love those things.  This way it doesn't damage the door and can come down easily.  I put one more strip right above the wreath, so it wouldn't move around when the door was swung open fast and furiously by hungry children!  






I think this would make great little gifts for a friend.  It is super inexpensive and is very quirky!  I just love it, hope you do to!!
