How to Make a Coffee Filter Heart

Learn how to make a farmhouse-inspired heart wall hanger with coffee filters. The best part about this lightweight decor is that it will not damage furniture, walls, or cabinets.

Supplies

Trace Heart

Trace a heart shape onto your foam board with a pencil.

You can use any heart pattern you have or download one from this earlier post.

I used a wooden heart from Dollar Tree, but I wanted it larger, so I added a half inch around it.

Next, trace an inner heart two inches from the outside traced lines.

Cut Out Heart

You must cut along the outermost and innermost lines to make a heart form for the wall hanging.

Tip: Remove the foam board in sections to make this step easier.

Punch Holes in Heart Form

Use an ice pick or similar tool to punch holes in the heart form.

I punched around three holes across the two-inch width of the form.

Coffee Filters

Fold coffee filters in half and then half two more times.

Then, twist the pointed end of each coffee filter.

Next, push the twisted end of the coffee filters into the prepared holes.

After you have a few coffee filters pushed into the form, turn it over and place a dot of hot glue at the point where the filter and the form meet.

Ribbon

To create a hanger, you can use ribbon, twine, fabric, etc.

Use a dot of hot glue to attach the hanger.

Attaching a ribbon hanger to the back

Make a simple ribbon bow. Use a skewer or toothpick glued to the back of the bow to attach the bow to the heart. Push the skewer or toothpick into the foam board, trim it off flush, and glue it in place.
