Every year, it never fails. Even though there's plenty of warning—after all, the giant turkey on your table should be a clue—the holidays always manage to sneak up on every last one of us. And when you're busy trying to find the perfect gift for all of your nearest and dearest, braving the mall lines and fighting for the last yule log, the last thing you want to worry about is how to make your house feel as wintry and festive as the season. Coffee filters to the rescue! The humble kitchen staples make for surprisingly versatile DIY decorating elements, if you know how to use them. Luckily, we've found four simple holiday hacks on Pinterest to turn your home into a winter wonderland.
All you need is hot glue, coffee filters, and an hour to turn a twiggy craft ring into a warm welcome for visiting guests.
Every time a bell rings, a coffee filter gets its wings. Add glitter and feathers and use them as an ornament on the tree, a personalized place setting at the table, or a cute custom gift tag.
Stacks on stacks on stacks. Set a few of these on the mantel or down the center of your holiday table for a sylvan setting that's in keeping with the season.
Forget the popcorn and opt instead for these pretty coffee-filter garlands to deck the halls or trim the tree.
