Blue & White Coffee Filter Christmas Tree

White and Blue Coffee Filter Tree - Amanda Formaro, Crafts by Amanda

In 2010 I made a coffee filter Christmas tree using tan coffee filters and red buttons. Then in 2013 I was asked by Disney to provide a couple of crafts to the ABC Family website and this white tree was one of them! They are very easy to make and are such pretty Christmas decorations.

It’s kind of funny that this year I’ve decided to actually go with a white tree for our Christmas tree, like my aunt had all the years I was growing up. My house is decorated in a coastal theme, so white seems to be fitting. I am working on some other decorations in that theme and will share those soon.

Here’s my other Coffee Filter Christmas Tree where I used “natural” coffee filters.

Blue & White Coffee Filter Christmas Tree


  • Cardboard or paper mache cone
  • White coffee filters
  • Blue beads
  • Blue and white ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  1. Take a small stack of coffee filters (10 or so) and fold in half to create a half circle. Cut the center out of the filters.
  2. You should be left with a doughnut shape. Cut through one section of the “doughnut” to break the circle. Repeat these steps as needed for more filters.
  3. Starting at the bottom of the cone, begin gluing the coffee filters on, working your way around the cone. Keep layering the filters over the previous ones, working your way up the cone. Cover the top of the tree with one of the coffee filter centers that you cut out earlier.
  4. For a fuller tree, add another layer of coffee filters over the first set.
  5. Use hot glue to add beads all over the tree.
  6. Tie ribbon into a small bow and trim the excess to desired length and hot glue to the top of the tree.

I originally made this project for Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.
