Make a Summer DIY Tie-Dye Coffee Filter Wreath!

A couple of weeks ago my girls and I had a little tie dying craft afternoon. We made a few different projects!

And we had some left over dye, and I started going a little crazy. I wanted to try tie dying all kinds of things. One of the things I grabbed was a box of coffee filters. I tied some rubber bands around a few bunches of filters and poured some different color dyes on them. I was afraid they might stick together with all of the dye, and after they dried I discovered they they hadn’t stuck together. Yay!

I was thinking of making a kind of tie dye flower light string, but then I decided to make a Tie Dye Wreath. Tie Dye reminds me of Summer and I thought a Tie Dye Summer Wreath would be so colorful and fun.

This is how I made the Tie Dye Summer Wreath.

And it can also a fun addition to a teen or tween room. I have a daughter doesn’t like super “girly” decor, but she loves all things Tie-dye. And I thought it would be PERFECT for her room.

It would also be great to make for a birthday party. You can tie dye the coffee filters in ANY colors – so you can coordinate it with colors from your party.

Materials:

  • Wreath form (I got mine from the Dollar Store)
  • Ribbon or Duct Tape to wrap around the wreath.
  • About 80-100 Coffee Filters.
  • Tie-Dye kit (I used one from Tulip/I Love To Create)

Here’s How to Make the Wreath:

**Be sure to wreath plastic gloves. We didn’t and our hands were dyed for a few days LOL!!

  • Wrap the wreath form with ribbon or duct tape. 
  • Wrap the coffee filters with rubber bands and squirt at least 2-3 colors of dye on the filters. Dye the coffee filters with dye and let them dry out.
  • Separate the tie dyed filters and then  scrunch each one up and hot glue them to the wreath form.
  • I put one row of filters around the top of the form.
  • Then another row on the outside edge of the form.
  • And then a third of the filters around the outside of the wreath form.
  • I didn’t add a layer of filters to the inside of the form, since the wreath form was so small and I didn’t want to crowd the inside of the form. I fluffed up the coffe filters when I had them all glued on to make the wreath look even. I also used a pair scissors to trim a few of the edges to shape the wreath.
  • Then I hot glued a ribbon to the back of the wreath so I could hang it up.
  • The last thing I did was I added a bow to the front with three coordinating ribbon colors.

Another thing I love about this wreath is how light it is. You can hang it anywhere!!
