Simple Coffee Filter FlowersSeptember 10, 2015

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?

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!
2. Let them dry fully. Admire the gorgeous colors!
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!
I’m loving these Coffee Filter Flowers! And my daughter is such a huge fan that she’s asked to make some more for her room!
I’m a proud mama! I love encouraging my girls to be creative and do crafty projects!

They’re a fabulous kids’ project! Thanks for visiting, Jess!
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! 🙂
Those are great! And simple, too. Something I could definitely do with my son!
Yes, I hope you try it Katie! I’m sure you guys will love doing it!
