Coffee Filter Christmas Tree


My sister, Annie made this
 Christmas tree with coffee filters.

We have to keep busy during this pandemic.
while staying home to stay safe, as this
Covid-19 is out of control in our world. 
There's hope, a vaccine will be 
available in the new year.

Cleaning out the pantry, we find
 a large supply of coffee filters.
We drink more tea than coffee,
so, we repurposed these filters. 


She made a cone form approx. 20 inches tall,
from cardboard and glued coffee filters to it.
Then she attached some wire lights.

It took approx 2 packs of filters.

Scrunch the middle of the coffee filter together and
glue to the cone, working around and up the cone.

Use a hot glue gun to glue the filter in place.

The first row is complete.
Continue up the tree.
and trim with scissors to shape the tree.

Mini lights in a wire from the Dollarstore.

A great pastime and a great Christmas decoration.
Stay home and stay safe.

  4. Hi Thelma. What a clever idea ! Lovely Christmas tree. We'd love for you to share your post at Meraki Link Party. The party starts from Monday thru till Thursday.

  5. That is very clever and it reminds me of the flowers we made out of kleenex when we were kids. You two are very crafty and I can only assume your sister is also a wonderful cook and baker like yourself. It's lovely that you have each other to spend the winter months with. You may be cooped up together but I think that all kinds of magic might happen over the next few months you are together. Take care and thank you for sharing this at my party. Hugs
