Coffee filters make extremely fun and versatile craft mediums. Whether square, round, triangular, wavy, flat, or any other kind, there are an incredible about of projects that you can create with them. Since coffee filters are generally very cheap, this is a very good combination!
I actually do not need coffee filters in my house, so I have to purchase them specifically for crafting. I’m not saying that I don’t drink coffee because that would be a huge lie…lol! Our coffee pot has a permanent filter though. So I just purchase random coffee filters when I see a good deal.
