DIY Coffee Filter Letters

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a beautiful weekend.

This morning I’d like to share a project that posted over at  Lil Luna last week. I was too excited about it not to share on here also.:)


A couple of years ago, I made a coffee-filter and cupcake-liner wreath that still hangs in my living room today (see HERE). Although it was quite a time-consuming project, the results were well worth it, and I’ve always wanted to make more.

This time I thought I’d mix it up a bit, and make letters instead of a regular wreath. The letters could be used as a single monogram, but I decided, “why not create a whole word, like ‘LOVE’?”

Again, I’m really pleased with the results and have already thought of many different ways I can use this both in the home, and for parties. But best of all, the whole project cost under $12! Holler, holler!

To make this project you will need:

About 200 coffee filters ($1.25 at Walmart)

Cardboard (I just used a shipping box I had: $0!)

Glue Gun and Sticks (I had the gun, $5 on glue)

About half a swimming noodle per letter ($1 each at the Dollar Tree)

Pencil and Scissors.



(Just ignore my wonky accent, videos are so embarrassing :)

Don’t you think this would be spectacular at a wedding? I do!

    LOVE these! I am currently making them myself but doing the letters L & C I love the video, very helpful. But I am wondering how you pulled it off with only 200 coffee filters. Did you use 200 on each letter? or 200 for all 4 letters. I am running out of coffee filters soo fast!
