After the advent calendar with Rudolph reindeers, we have a box of coffee filters left. Then the white filters seemed to be a nightmare because they had to be dyed. But now we could use them for a coffee filters Christmas wreath. I have to admit that dyeing the filters with markers was a lot of fun and experimenting. Which marker is the best to dye, which dissolves, how do the colors combine, which to use? So many combinations and so many possibilities 💚

How to dye coffee filters with markers
Coloring coffee filters is a lot of fun and experimenting. Unfortunately, not all markers are suitable for dyeing, as some inks do not dissolve. My daughter and I had to do a few tries before we found the best markers. It is worth having a few shades of green to make the end result more effective.
- Cut circles from the filters
- Draw various green patterns and lines on them
- Sprinkle a little water
- Leave to dye and dry (you can let it dry on a towel for a while and then hang to dry)
How to make a coffee filters Christmas wreath
The base of the wreath can be a paper plate with a cut out center or a rim cut from cardboard or a box.
All elements have been stuck to the base, ie:
- Dyed coffee filters
- Red pom poms
- Red bows
Filters were glued with paper glue, and pom poms and ribbon with all purpose glue.
The last step is to tie a ribbon that allows you to hang the wreath.
Coffee filters Christmas wreath is ready

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
