I have seen these everywhere & love them LOTS...
Flowers made from coffee filters. If you have learned anything about me on this blog, you must know I like cheap, cute & quick crafts! These are precious, they look vintage and soft, and are made from coffee filters! Cheap-o coffee filters!
First I soaked them in leftover coffee. It doesn't take very much. I let them soak for a couple of hours then layed them on the table to dry. They dry very quickly.
You need a piece of wire (or a pipe cleaner), coffee filters, scissors, and floral tape.
Fold them in half & then half again.
Cut a scalloped edge on the top.
Cut the point off, so that when you open it there is a hole in the middle.
Here is my little stack on my hot glue gun tray.
Roll up some of the filter to make the middle of your flower. Then tear it off. You will continue with whats left in a minute.
Then tape it to your wire (or pipe cleaner). It doesn't matter which one you use because you will be taping it all the way down at the end.
Get the rest of your filter (or you can start with a new one) and start rolling & taping it. You may have to gather some sections a bit while you are rolling to make it a full flower.
*Note to self - use anti aging cream on hands
Wrap them until they look like you like them to. These are the first two I made and they both look a little different. I think they are so pretty!
Use the floral tape to tape all the way down the wire and you are finished! I have also seen some that were died pink that were really beautiful, too.
Now..make enough for a bouquet! I would love to see yours if you make one (or 2, or 3)!
