  • Put ½ cup of water in a bowl. Use a paintbrush to mix in 1 – 2 tbs of pink paint.

  • Lay all the coffee filters on a plate and pour the pink paint water over the filters until each one has absorbed the water, but take care not to over soak them.

  • Use your paintbrush and red paint to make a ½ inch edge around the filters. If you rub your brush around the edges a few times it will start to soak into the filters below. Filp the filters over and repeat this process on the back so that the red edge goes all the way through to every filter.

  • Step 4. Dry the coffee filters. You can do this by laying them individually on cookie sheets and baking them at 300 degrees for up to an hour. You can also hang them on a laundry line or drying rack until they are completely dry.
  • Put the coffee filters together in groups of two for each flower. You can fold the coffee filters in half, pinch your fingers in the center of the fold and then open and scrunch up the edges until they look like the picture shown here. Where you hold the coffee filters, twist until there is a bit sticking out to attach the stem to.

  • Wrap one end of a pipe cleaner around the “stem” part of the flower a few times. Then twist a “leaf” into the pipe cleaner. (If your flowers are too heavy, double up the pipe cleaners and use two twisted up together.)

  • Make as many as you want (we made 6) so that you can have a beautiful bouquet.

  • Step 8. Add the flowers to a pot or vase and display or give away! They make nice home decor and they also make a nice gift because they stay pretty for a long, long time and they don’t cause anyone to sneeze!
