Life in the Craft Room

It’s that time of the year again when I get the teacher sweats and shakes.

The nightmares have started along with the panic attacks and obsessive list making.

Makes ya want to be a teacher, right?!

Over the weekend I came up with some cute ideas to add to my nautical themed classroom.

Want to make a coffee filter wreath?



You’ll need:

Coffee Filters-Hit up the dolla’ store

Wreath- Mine’s a medium size from the dollar store

Hot glue


Fold the filter


Glue around the wreath.


Continue around the wreath adding layers until you reach desired fullness.



I used a full pack of filters to make two medium wreaths.
