My daughter Lucy and I made coffee filter flowers other day.
To make the flowers, you will need paper coffee filters, watercolor paints, and pipe cleaners. Before you start, I suggest covering your workspace with an absorbent material. We used paper towels over plastic art mats, but you could also use newspaper. Flatten out the coffee filters, then begin to paint any design (or non-design) you want.
I love how each one is unique. I mean, how pretty are these? Even the paper towels underneath were pretty!
Once they've dried, you can start assembling your flowers. Pinch the middle of the coffee filter and gently twist to form a flower shape. You can use a single filter, or more than one, depending on how big you want the bloom to be. Then attach a pipe cleaner around the bottom to form a stem. Continue to make as many flowers as you want. Then you can either leave them loose, or bundle them together to form a bouquet.
I wrapped a bunch for Lucy to give to one of her friends.
