Coffee Filter Wreath

My friend ended up with a Sam's Club portion of coffee filters and a coffee maker that didn't use them. "Can you use these?" she asked.
I quickly said yes, because all over the blogosphere I had seen coffee filters turned into beautiful creations, including wreaths. Inspired by the Nester's version, I decided to try to make my own.

I think they are a great ode to winter.  

I also made one for my friend. (I think she liked it.) It's a really easy project. The greatest concern is not burning your fingers on the hot glue. I had no problems with my first wreath, but I got my finger once when working on the second wreath. Not bad odds, considering the number of coffee filters---a gazillion---it takes to make a fluffy wreath.
