Autumn Coffee Filter Wreath

My mother has been trying to score the Fall Coffee Filter Wreath I made a couple of years ago.  So this fall I decided to make one just for her.
I have to admit gluing the filters on is not my favorite job, but decorating it is!  I just love the way these coffee filter wreaths come together.
You can see my previous Fall Coffee Filter Wreath here and the Christmas version here.

I used a 12” foam wreath for this one… and a 14” wreath for the previous fall wreath.  I wouldn’t go any smaller than 12” or there won’t be much space in the center to work with.

Quick and Easy Sofa Shelf

Why is it, no matter where the builder puts floor vents they’re inevitably in the way?  This upstairs family room has two vents.  One is behind the loveseat in front of the large window, and one is right below the large sofa.   Our previous sofa had a little room underneath, enough to slip an extended vent deflector to direct the heat out the front.   This sofa is much lower to the ground and has to be moved away from the vent to allow for heat and a/c to get through.  A simple shelf was created to remedy this problem since it made no sense to spend money for a sofa table you wouldn’t see anyway.

This will be the quickest tutorial you’ll ever read.
