DIY Christmas Decorations

A DIY coffee filter ruffle tree is easy to make, and doesn’t cost much either!  To make your own, gather these easy to find supplies.

You will need:

  • A cone form, in either paper mache or styrofoam
  • Coffee filters
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Glitter
  • Scissors

Start by folding about 10 coffee filters in half and cut out the middle.  This will leave you with just the outside ruffle edge of the coffee filter.  You can discard the middle.

Next, to start your layers, pass one coffee filter ring over your cone form and add glue to secure at the bottom.  The edge of the coffee filter and the edge of your cone should match up.

Continue layering and gluing each coffee filter.  You can space them as close together or as far apart as you like.  I layered mine about ½ inch.

When your cone gets smaller toward the top, you will need to cut your filters to fit so there is no overlap.  This can be done with a quick measurement and a snip of the scissors.  Continue to glue and stack your coffee filters.

Once you hit the top of the cone form, you can leave it as it is, or add a star.  I created my star with a bit of cardstock and glitter. It’s the perfect finishing touch!
