I made this craft often growing up. It is super simple. Phoebe squealed with delight each time she dropped some food coloring.
Coffee Filter Flowers
A bowl of water
Green pipe cleaners
- Fold the coffee filter in half four times so that you make a small triangle. Dip it into the water so that it gets completely wet. Let the excess water drip off.
- Place the wet filter on a stack of paper towels. Drop a couple drops of food coloring on the filter. Use any combo of colors you want.
- Blot the filter with paper towels. Set the colored coffee filter on a separate paper towel and leave it to dry. Continue until you get the amount of flowers you’d like.
- When the flowers are dry, twist a piece of pipe cleaner around the skinner triangle point. Pull the layers of the filter apart to create a flower!
