Easy Coffee Filter Christmas Tree Craft

I may not be dreaming of a white Christmas this year (I live in Florida after all), but I adore this snowy-white coffee filter Christmas tree. How could you not?!

Simple, elegant and totally easy to DIY. This coffee-inspired craft is sure to warm your Christmas decor. And did I mention that it is totally easy? I pulled this coffee filter Christmas tree together in about 20 minutes using things I had around the house — so it is economical too! (Yes, I actually had coffee filters lying around. They were leftover from our 4th of July coffee filter firework pom poms. But in case you don’t they are $1 for 100 at Target.)

Coffee Filter Christmas Tree

You can use a store-bought cardboard cone or you can make your own. I used 12 x 12 white cardstock paper for mine, and it worked great. Using a string and a paper clip, you can create the perfect cone template. After cutting out the cone, I used tape to secure my shape.

How to make a cone
For the coffee filter ruffles, fold a small stack of coffee filters in half (about 5 or so) and cut out the center. FYI – I used 17 filters for my whole tree.

Cut through your ruffled edge so that you have a long ruffle and wrap it around your cone. Depending on how fat you made the base of your tree, you may need to fill in the first few layers with another coffee filter. Don’t worry, you won’t be able to tell later.

Use just a dab of hot glue to secure the filter to the cone. I used a dab in the middle and for each end.

DIY Christmas Tree Craft
Layer the ruffles by adding coffee filters all the way up the cone cutting filters smaller as you go.

As you near the top, you will need to pinch in the edges to help make the circle.

Finally, adorn your tree with a star. I decided to leave mine all white, but you could also glue sequins or beads as ornaments. I think it would be fun to make several of these trees in varying sizes for a mantel.

You’ll notice a picture of my favorite International Delight treat along with my Christmas tree — Peppermint Chocolate Truffle. It is the perfect coffee companion for the holidays. Last month I also used it to make amazing Chocolate Peppermint Truffles, if you missed that post you have to check it out!

I love my coffee filter Christmas tree so much that the next project on my list is a coffee filter wreath! Tied with a big read now, won’t that be lovely?!

Have yourself a sweet Christmas!
