Isn’t that fluffy?

Today was a fun craft day!  I had such a wonderful time hanging out with my sisters, Jen and Allison, and a few of my best friends, Melissa and Stefanie.  Of course, Bella was there to make us smile even more.  Allison, from A Glimpse Inside, had a great tutorial on how to make a wreath using coffee filters.  So, a craft day was in order!

Jen and Al were working on other crafts while the 3 of us made wreaths.  These wreaths will take quite a bit of time!  It took me almost 4 hours to finish it.  Which, went by quickly because I was laughing the vast majority of the time. 

You will need coffee filters (duh!), a wreath, glue gun, ribbon, and an ink pad.  Making the wreath is super easy but just time consuming because you want it to look very full… which causes it to be very fluffy!  That is the first thing Jeremy said when he saw it.  Hope that was a good comment??
Remember, candy is a must.  I recommend skittles, starbursts, and M&Ms.

We also used the ping pong/pool table for extra space for all of our supplies.  And, of course, we needed to revert back to the directions to make sure we were on the right track.

Melissa, Jen, and Al crafting away :)

Stefanie found the perfect way not to mess up her precious coffee filters!

YEAH!!!  Finally complete!!  I decided not to put it over my entry way mirror because, well, it was just too fluffy.  So, we hung it on the inside of our front door and I really love it there.  What do you think?

Remember, that I made this one for the outside of the front door.  I am a wreath making machine! haha

What should my next craft project be?
