Shabby Lil Chic Wreath!

Okay guys, I tell you how this started.  Awhile back I saw a coffee Filter wreath in Bloggyworld..Didn't save the picture or the site, SORRY, but it has just been stuck in my head.  I had about 15 coffee filters, not enough to make the wreath, so I added what paper I had.  Brown paper lunch sacks and Paper towels. 
Poured my leftover pot of coffee over ALL of them in a large bowl.  Let them sit a couple of minutes, pulled them out and put them outside to dry.  After they were totally dry, folded them in triangles and rolled into little flower looking shapes.  Stuffed!!! and I mean pushed them into a Grapevine Garland that I left rolled in a circle.
 Didn't have a wreath and it worked great, just more dense and hard to get that paper into.  Well Ladies, this is a FAVE...looks like a vintage paper, french ephemera, shabby chic...  I may glitter the heck outta the little edges, but am enjoying it's soothing, plainness right now. 

Many Blessings,
Join some great parties right here....

  5. Hi there- this is beautiful - I absolutely love how it came out! Love the coffee filter wreaths too- but this could be a new fave! Stopping by from Vanessa's party- nice to meet you! :)

  6. Hi! That has to be one of my favorite coffee filter wreaths I have seen in blogland. I love the contrast of tones and having it be on a grapevine base probably makes it a lot more substantial. Thanks so much for sharing this at Inspiration Friday this week!
