Coffee Grounds Filter

What you’ll need:

  • 3 basket style coffee filters
  • 2 cotton balls
  • 6-8” length of silver or gold ribbon
  • 1 white chenille stem
  • 1 gold chenille stem
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun

How to make it:

  1. Place two cotton balls in the center of one of the coffee filters .
  2. Hold the coffee filter with your fingers, gathering the cotton balls in the center to create the angel’s head.
  3. Place a second coffee filter onto the open end, tucking the filter in a bit into the head area. This will produce the layered effect on the dress .
  4. While still holding the filter together, tie a piece of gold or silver ribbon around the “neck” and tie a tight bow. Trim ends and set aside .
  5. Take the third coffee filter and fold it in half, then fold the filter up length-wise accordion style. Wrap a white chenille stem around the center, and then fan out the wings . Fold the excess chenille into a loop for your hanger and twist together at the end.
  6. Make a halo from the gold chenille by wrapping it around something circular, such as the top of a paint bottle. Twist the ends to form the halo. Trim the long end of the chenille, leaving approximately 3”
  7. Have an adult hot glue the halo to the back of the angel so that it is positioned above the head.
  8. Glue the wings in place behind the angel, hiding the gold chenille from the halo
