Coffee Filter Bouquet
Use watercolors to paint coffee filters then fold to make flowers! A fun project even with your youngest crafters! Display your beautiful bouquet in a vase and keep these colorful creations year round.
Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Place a coffee filter on a piece of wax paper, and then add the paint. The wax paper will protect your surface but will not stick to your craft.
Paint a second coffee filter and set them both aside to dry.
Fold each coffee filter in half and place them side by side, as shown.
Fold the coffee filters in half again.
Form the rounded flower shape by gently twisting the filters.
Pinch and twist the bottom of the filters, to create a base for the flower.
Use a green Fuzzy Stick to create the stem. Twist and attach the Fuzzy Stick around the base created in Step 7.
Add a little craft glue to secure the Fuzzy Stick to the base of the flower.
Thread the Fuzzy Stick through a green bendy straw. Tip: Make sure the bendy part is more towards the top. This will make a sturdy stem for your flower.
Continue to fluff and form the filters to create shapes that resemble the petals of a flower.
When inserting into a vase, bend the straw to create fun angles, like a natural flower.
