Nothing is hotter these days than green crafting. Using unexpected items or what you already have to craft leads to a lot of innovative ideas that people love. Repurposing or upcycling, like using coffee filters to make recycled Christmas ornaments, is such a brilliant idea. Not only do these DIY Christmas ornaments look amazing, but they are super budget-friendly and fun to create. Coffee filters are actually some of the most underestimated Christmas craft materials. Besides these beautiful snowflake ornaments, coffee filters can be used to make boutique-worthy tabletop trees, stunning wreaths, and angel wings for your tree topper, and even lighting. Coffee filters are cheap, easy to cut and fold, and they can be quickly dyed or painted. If white isn't your color, then use coffee to tint it brown. In fact, make it super resourceful by using the filter to make your coffee and then, instead of tossing it, dry it out and use it for your Christmas crafts.

Coffee filters are so versatile. I use them to clean windows, make angels, as wreaths, and now to make snowflakes. I cannot wait to see what other ideas people come up with for the little pieces of paper. I haven't even touched on the ways you can color them either.

They said this was a recycled materials craft, but recycling means to re-use something, this is actually a re-purposed craft because you are using new coffee filters for something other than their intended purpose.

What a great idea! When I first saw them, I thought they were made of yarn. I can't wait to try this on my crafting night with friends!

I love it when one item can be repurposed to serve another purpose. These ornaments do exactly that! They look delicate and can be cut so no two are alike just like actual snowflakes. They also are inexpensive. I've never worked with fabric medium. Would it stick to a fresh sheet of waxed paper?

Why can't I print the pattern? All I could print was the first page.

There is no pattern - she said they were done randomly.
