Coffee filters are so versatile and easy to use. I love the one where you use them to make the wreath. I have to say that is my absolute favorite project. Do you have other inexpensive ideas for crafts using items you find around the home besides coffee filters? I would love to make a bunch of wreaths and hand out this year. It would be inexpensive and festive.

Wow, I had no idea you could do so much with coffee filters. I usually go for crafts that involve toilet paper rolls or old Christmas cards since I always have those laying around.
