During Spring flower crafts are my go-to craft option, they are so colourful and always make me smile. Paper crafts are always fun, they are a great way for young children to work on their motor skills and their creative side, but I especially love these coffee filter flowers as they use such a fun art process to add colour to the petals.

Coffee Filter Flowers Instructions:

STEP 1: Prepare coffee filters

Take your coffee filters and flatten them, then place them in a stack of five. To add colour to your coffee filter flowers you are going to use a water based marker. We used pink, but get creative, you can use any colour you like!

Grab a marker in your chosen colour and colour around the edge of each coffee filter. (as shown in the image below)

STEP 2: Wet coffee filter

Dip your paintbrush in a glass of water and brush it along the section you just coloured with the marker. Try to pull the paintbrush towards the centre of the coffee filter, carefully and using small strokes.  Continue doing this until the whole filter is wet.

STEP 3: Dry and fold coffee filter 

Allow the coffee filters to dry completely before continuing! Once they have dried, start by folding each coffee filter stack in half and then fold it again in half.

You will also need to make a small snip at the tip of the coffee filters.

STEP 5: Open coffee filters & add a straw

You need to do this step carefully. Gently open the filters. Take your straw and put it through the hole in the stack's centre.

Now it's time to complete your coffee filter flower craft. Pull the top filter off the stack, bunch it around the top of the straw and keep it in place with a drop of glue.
