Recycled Coffee Filter Inspiration

by Dinah Wulf

I made this Coffee Filter Wreath a few months ago.  I came across my left over coffee filters the other day and thought I’d go online to look for some DIY inspiration.  I found some great ideas and some new favorite blogs.  Oh and by the way, here is how I made this Coffee Filter Wreath for about $5.00.

This is perfect to pin on your lapel as a brooch; this elegant Recycled Coffee Filter Flower is by Design By Night.

An adorable craft for Spring are these lovely and dainty flower baskets from Urban Comfort.  These would make cute bridal shower or baby shower favors.

New York designer Vilma Farrell, designs these gorgeous Coffee Filter Lamps I found on Alternative Consumer.

This beautiful Coffee Filter Pom Pom Garland from Craft Gossip adds whimsy to a shabby chic birthday party or baby shower.

Aunt Peaches made these beautiful rose bouquets by mixing latex craft paint and water to dye the coffee filters.

Believe it or not, this if a milk jug adorned with coffee filters turned lamp!  What a great idea from Make Handmade.

Lastly, this fabulous Dutch Blog, By Miekk, shows you how to cleverly make coffee filter gift tags and gift wrap.

I hope you were as inspired as I was! Now… what to do with mine???
