Coffee Filter Flowers Craft

Ingredients

  • 6 coffee filters per flower
  • food coloring
  • bamboo skewers
  • hot glue gun
  • floral tape

Instructions

  • Dye coffee filters. This can be achieved by adding a few drops of food coloring to about 1 cup water. Soak coffee filters about 5 minutes or longer, wring out and let dry on counter.
  • In stacks of 3, fold filters in half. Then fold in half again to make a quarter.
  • Cut a scalloped edge out of each stack of coffee filters.
  • Unfold filters and stack them all on top of one other.
  • Here you can either pinch the filters together in the middle and kind of twist them and staple at the bottom. Or find the center of the filters and using a bamboo skewer poke a hole through all 6 layers and thread onto the skewer.
  • If using the staple method, take each layer and scrunch to the top to form the flower. If using the skewer method, scrunch each layer and secure with hot glue.
  • For a more finished look, wrap the stem with floral tape and glue on some floral leaves.
