My First Crack at a Coffee Filter Wreath

I really want to share my coffee filter wreath… even though I am so sleepy!
I have the hardest time waiting.

I was up WAY too late and woke up WAY too early!

So, I’m going to pop up some pictures
and share the how-to later.
(if you still want a “how-to” after you see it!)

 

After I was finished I realized… 
it really didn’t look like the ones I checked out 
on Pinterest after I was done.

Note to self: Do not look at pinterest after the fact!
Debbie posted this Qt the other day
and I sure liked it!

It doesn’t look like hers either!?
You take a peek at this coffee filter wreath here.

Even though, I used almost ALL my
hubbies coffee filters in the process!
~Whoops~
He was wondering if I could save him one or two?
No worries, I ended up going to buy more.
He has caffeine. Crisis averted.
Okay, so… it looks like it’s drunk!
Well, maybe just tipsy?

Whatevah.
… like my sister always says
“It is what it is”.
I made it, so that makes me it’s momma right?
And I love it.
(definitely a wee bit more before I peeked at Pinterest)
It just has a few bits & wobbles sticking out I didn’t notice until I took the pictures.
Hmm… must be a theme?
That’s what happens when I have my picture taken.
{because it couldn’t be the cookies…}
You know how I’m on a big flower kick?
 Well, I managed to pop a few burlap roses in the mix.
    
I’m afraid to trim up the little extra bits throwing it off.
So, I’ll leave it as-is and chalk it up to it being my first.
This photo just had a pretty sparkle… and I liked it.

See ya all soon!
I still have glue in my gun…

    I LOVE it! I love the twist you put on it with the flowers. I’ve been trying to put a wreath together for days and you did this is one night! I really don’t think you sleep at all.

    Girl, that is awesome! You put your own unique twist on it, with your creative flowers. I love love love it. Did I mention mine took me a few days, not ONE day and night? I think there is another blogging friend of mine attempting one too, I will let you know if she does it. I am proud of you, your first wreath!
