Vintage Peony Wreath

 
Another makeover for my Interchangeable Wreath!  I hope you like this one!
 

 This lovely Vintage Peony was made with coffee filters!  ;-) 

I know, right?! 

There is some serious inspiration about coloring coffee filters in THIS POST from fave blogger, Danni at Silo Hill Farm!  BTW, she made cabbage with hers!  No kidding, check it out!

 
Following her directions with these left over paint colors,

 
here are the results!  I love how each filter absorbs the color a little differently.  Some almost look tie dyed.

 
Here's how you do it!  Each peony consists of one filter laying flat, while eight others are folded into quarters and stacked evenly on top.
 
 
Using a T-pin, the stack of filters is attached to the Basic Wreath Form.
 
 Next, crumple each coffee filter individually.

 
Then straighten and fluff them until the peony is as full as you would like.  Continue around the wreath form with the next stack of filters.
 
 
The vintage look is perfect for my old rock farmhouse!
 
This fun project was so cheap, fast and easy, I'm thinking through another coffee filter idea while typing!  Don't you love it when creativity happens?!

  1. Oh my goodness! This is gorgeous! Peonies are my favorite flower and I love this wreath. I cannot wait to give this a try when I get my craft room back in order at my new house. Thank you for the shout out and for taking the cabbage project to the next level! Those filters certainly do lend themselves to the papery, fluffy petals of peonies! Lovely project Marci!
