DIY Coffee Filter Wreath!

Very simple, just takes a bit to make!
So pop in a movie & get ready to make your own Coffee Filter Wreath!

Here's what you need
Pack of coffee filters
embroidery hoop
Hot glue gun
  You will need to start by pulling apart all your coffee filters.
  Fold the filter in half.
 Then fold over the filter from left to right.
 This is what the filter should like, once it is folded.
 The wreath takes a lot of them, so make sure you have a good pile of them!
 You are going to glue each filter on the very edge of the embroidery hoop. Make sure you space each filter about 1/2 inch apart. This is what your wreath will look like, once the first layer is finished.
 Then on the side of the embroidery hoop, you are going to glue each filter in the middle of the space below the first layer. 

Here is a closer look!
 This is what your second layer should like, once finished.

I forgot to take a picture of how I did the 3rd layer. I will have to explain by words!
 You glue the first layer to inside of the embroidery hoop. Don't worry, you don't see one bit of the embroidery hoop, at all.
Of course, you could leave it white but I wanted to add a little  Embellishment, for the holidays! 

To hang your wreath, you will need about 8 inches of ribbon! Make sure you burn the edges of your ribbon, so it doesn't fray. Then just hot glue your ribbon to the back of your embroidery hoop! 
There you have your very own DIY coffee filter wreath!
