Coffee Filter Christmas Trees
Coffee Filter Christmas Tree: Made with some cardboard and coffee filters, these DIY Christmas trees are the perfect addition to your rustic Christmas decor.
I saw these great coffee filter Christmas trees at Crafts by Amanda and knew I had to try them out. Check out her version, where she uses foam tree foams and stick pins. I decided to make mine with a cardboard cone, the same way I did the candy trees, check out how I made the cone shape here.
- coffee filters -white or natural
- sequins (optional)
- hot glue
How To Make Coffee Filter Christmas Trees
First make your cardboard cone out of cardstock –see how I made mine here.
After you have your cone made, prepare the coffee filters. I decided to use white for mine, and found them at the dollar store. To make the ruffles, you simply cut out the middle of the coffee filters.
Next, glue the filters on to the cone using hot glue, starting at the bottom and working my way up to the top.
After it was all done, I decided to add a little sparkle with these great assorted sequins.
Here it is all finished. I really like the subtle affect of using the white sequins on the white paper.
I added it to all the white milk glass on my living room bookcases. In the past I’ve always put my milk glass collection away at Christmas to make room for holiday items, but this year I am really enjoying white as the accent colour, so I incorporated it. You might also recognize the marshmallow tree from the candy tree collection, instructions for it are here.
After I finished making one for myself, I wanted to make one for my sister as well. She wanted something really different in her home this year. So, she’s doing an orange Christmas, with some copper and brown thrown in. When I saw Amanda’s original brown coffee filter tree, I thought it would be great with her orange scheme this year. Here it is grouped with some of my green trees. I love the copper sequins on it.
Thanks for the inspiration Amanda, I love the coffee filter Christmas trees!
I just love how the white one looks, so classy! And the darker one for your sister is gorgeous too! Thanks so much for the shout out, so glad you liked the project. Merry Christmas! 🙂

Coffee filter tree looks so nice. I did make the coffee filter wreath and it turned out beautiful!
Hi, Your coffee filter tree looks lovely and I especially like the taller white tree in the middle of the picture! It looks like it is made with leaf shapes. Can I find the instructions for that somewhere? Please can you tell me how did you made that one ?
The middle tree is one I bought years ago, and it’s covered with white feathers.
