Simple Coffee Filter Flowers
Sep 102015
 

These colorful little flowers are made from coffee filters! It’s a fabulous little craft that my daughters had a blast helping me with. This is a quintessential kids’ craft, since children can do this project from beginning to end all by themselves (depending on their ages, of course!) However, the final product does not look like a kid made it… in fact, I think it’s an adorable and playful addition to a home office desk! Or it can be a bright, cheery way to spruce up a kitchen counter! Or a fun decoration for a playroom shelf!

Here, take a look! Doesn’t it look rather chic?

Directions:
1. Paint with watercolors on the coffee filters. Try to use a decent amount of paint and add enough water so that the colors blend. That’s what will give the final product a gorgeous, blended look!

3. Roll two coffee filters into a flower shape. Using tape, attach to one end of a dowel rod.

4. Roll the green washi tape around the dowel rods to cover the exposed wood. The green tape makes the rod look just like a stem!

  1. Aww! These are so neat! I want to try them with my nieces some time!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  2. These are a blast from the past! When I was a kid I colored on coffee filters with magic marker, then dipped them in water to make “tie dye” designs. But I never turned them into flowers. So cool!

      Thanks so much, Jenny! These were really fun to make. My daughters have already asked to make them a few times since we first did this craft. And that was only last week! :)

  3. Those are great! And simple, too. Something I could definitely do with my son!

I Love to Hear From You!
