$3.00 Wreath/Spring Porch

Since I knew we were going to have a house full of visitors, I wanted to spruce up the front porch and the yard with spring colors after the drab winter. I decided to make a coffee filter wreath for the front door.

I came across the idea of using a pool noodle to use as a wreath form. How smart and cheap is this? It has slipped my mind on which blog it was on so if you know please let me know so we can give proper credit to the genius. I got a pool noodle at my local dollar store and 2 packages of coffee filters.

I promise I took pictures of the next two steps on my IPad and now I can’t get them to download.. Just bare with me…

First, join the two ends of the noodle together to form a circle and tape them together with duct tape. Then wrap fabric around the form to hide the foam.

 I decided to try dyeing the filters as I did not want a white wreath outside knowing it would eventually get dirty anyway. I tried the tea thing and it worked. I was just too impatient to let them get really dark brown so they ended up an off-white. Then simply hot glue and adhere the coffee filters just like I did here for the lamp.

How did I figure $3 you ask? I bought the noodle and 2 packages of coffee filters for $1 each. I had leftover fabric and ribbon so I was good there.

Here is the finished product…

I added the turquoise ribbon to add some color and tied some more ribbon on the flower planters to tie them together.

What do ya think?
