fun with coffee filters

Last night, my latest craft project made its debut. 

This is probably one of my easiest projects so far, and it was pretty inexpensive!

All you need is:
a wreath form - $2 at Hobby Lobby with 50% off sale
two packs of coffee filters - $4 (a lot of tutorials only used 1 pack, but I ended up needing two)
hot glue gun (low temp)
glue sticks

There are a TON of these wreaths all over blogland.  I read a few tutorials, but the steps are pretty simple. For me, I folded the coffee filters in quarters and then glued them randomly to the wreath form. 
 I wanted it to be really full, so I just glued them as close to each other as possible.

I think the only downfall to this project is that it takes time. Over the course of 4 or 5 hours of the Man playing Assasin's Creed, I managed to glue around 400 filters.  I'm pretty happy with the finished wreath.

Not to shabby for a $6 investment.
