DIY Coffee Filter Christmas Trees

DIY Coffee Filter Christmas Trees

What to do with those old coffee filters lying around because you graduated to a Nespresso a couple years ago? Make these adorable white ruffly Christmas trees! Okay, I love these trees and they fit in perfectly with my neutral holiday decor. Better yet, making them was super easy.

And don’t worry if you have brown coffee filters, those will work and look just as cute as white.

What you’ll need:

  • Coffee filters
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Thick poster board or thin box
  • Clear packing tape

Check out my Instagram Reel below to see how simple these coffee filter Christmas trees are to make, or see below for step by step instructions.

First, find a thick poster board or thin box like the one below. Cut a circle the size that you want the tree.

Fold the circle into a cone and then use packing tape to secure the edge.

Cut a stack of coffee filters into thick strips, about 1.5 inches thick.

Starting at the bottom, use your hot glue gun to make a line of glue around the tree.

Gently, press 1 coffee filter strip onto the line of glue. You don’t need to press very hard for the filter to stick to the hot glue. Don’t press too hard so that you keep the filters natural ruffles on the tree!

Repeat the line of glue and filter on the tree until you reach the top. For the peak, I glue a small piece of filter together and glued it on the top of the tree.
