I love the holidays…I love the hussle and bussle of preparing for Christmas day. I’m a little crazy I know. This season, as a Lowes Creator, I was asked to create some holiday decor. I decided to do not one, but TWO projects. You can see my finished pieces above: a Christmas Coffee Filter Wreath and a Holiday Frosted Mirror.
Christmas Coffee Filter Wreath
- One Pack of 100 Coffee Filters ($1.81)
- One 8″ SuperVent locking band (I used a 7″ plastic embroidery ring because my Lowe’s was our of stock of the SuperVent) ($7.98)
- One Hot Glue Gun ($4.98)
- One Red Glitter Spray Paint ($4.95)
- Holiday loose decor ($1.00-2.50 ea)
The steps were fairly simple:
Step One: Pull apart the coffee filters and lay them flat (but don’t “flatten” them)
Step Two: Fold in Half
Step Three: Fold into a Quarter NOTE: very important not to fold them flat, or else your wreath won’t fluff
Step Four: Gluing first layer. You want to glue on the outer ring but not the back because you want your wreath to lay flat. Glue each filter about 1/2 inch apart.
Step Five: Gluing second layer. Move in for your second layer and you will be gluing again every 1/2 inch but basically in between the first. See pic for example.
Step Six: Gluing final layer. This layer will be on the inner part of your ring. See pic for example. Finish Gluing all around, fluff and decorate as desired. I spray painted some red glitter and added some loose decor by gluing it on. Voila!
Holiday Frosted Mirror
- One Rectangle Frame Mirror ($29.97)
- One Loctite Spray Adhesive ($4.98)
- One Frogtape- Multi Surface Tape ($7.98)
- One Valspar Frosting Spray ($4.98)
- Stencils (bought from craft store for $2.50)
- Ornaments and ribbon ($.99-$2.00)
This was also so so so easy to do and looked gorgeous! In fact, since I used “Wonder” I can dress it up or down for any Holiday I want! Check out these easy steps.
Step One: Have an open area where the fumes won’t get ya. Use Frogtape to secure the frame part and make about a 1/4 trim around the mirror. Make sure your mirror is clean and dirt free also.
Step Two: Set up your stencils.
Step Three: Spray the adhesive on the back, just a light layer since you will be removing them soon.
Step Four: Stick your letters to your mirror, you can use a straightedge to make sure it’s even if you would like.
Step Five: Frost Mirror with the Frosting Spray Paint. Make sure you do even sprays and quick, cause it will run…like mine did a little. Oops!
Step Six: Allow to dry for about 2 hours. Remove the stencils and wash remaining adhesive with just warm water and a soft cloth. You now have your frosted mirror! I simply added some ornaments with Christmas ribbon and made it a Christmas Mirror.
