Coffee filter garland? Don't mind if I do...

I found myself with a whole lot of coffee filters that I didn't have a use for. Don't get me wrong, I am an avid coffee drinker: a java junkie, latte lova, coffee queen, OK, I'll stop. Anyway, I use a reusable coffee filter in the mornings (maybe I won't feel so bad about my addiction if I'm saving trees at the same time?) but I bought a package of coffee filters in order to strain some homemade yogurt (Yes, you have to make yogurt at home. in your crock pot. it's so good) but I only used one filter from the package.

So naturally, I googled "What to do with extra coffee filters" and that's when I found a gem. A Miss Pam Garrison posted once upon a time about a garland she made after seeing a window display at Anthropologie (Best Store Everrr)(Sorry, Target. Don't worry though, you are a close second). Her creation is fabulous and hopefully she doesn't mind that I just had to make one of my own.

you like?


  1. Very nice, Erin! I too love Anthropologie's window displays; just last week I saw they had made fun mosaics using wine corks. We're looking forward to seeing you guys next week!

  2. Very cool Erin! Thanks for posting. Just love reading about new creative ideas! :)
