How to make a large coffee filter flower:
What you’ll need:
I needed something to anchor coffee filters, and I thought a hula hoop would be the perfect size. I bought one from Target (less than $2). I also bought lots of coffee filters just like these and had my husband and my cousin flatten each of them individually for me (thanks guys!)
I attached the coffee filters to the hula hoop with a low-temp hot glue gun (if you don’t have one, they’re super inexpensive on Amazon!), overlapping each of them slightly.
Then I simply spiraled the coffee filters in towards the middle, hot gluing each coffee filter to the layer behind it, until it looked like this:
Now I needed to figure out something for the center. I didn’t want it to be another color, but I didn’t want pure white either. I decided to make a big rosette out of some lace from my husband’s grandmother. I just hot glued it right onto another coffee filter, and trimmed the edges once it was the size I wanted.
Then I hot-glued it to the center of my coffee filter flower:
I hung it with a command hook so we didn’t damage the surface we were hanging it from, centered it, and stepped back to enjoy the finished product!
My mom and I were testing out the “present opening spot” – and of course Buckley jumped into her lap and I had to capture it
Don’t you love how it fills that space now?! It fit perfectly with the rest of our bridal shower decor!
I love that this project is a big impact, but just cost about $6. Coffee filters are amazing!
