DIY Coffee Filter Flowers

DIY coffee filter flowers
I don’t know about you, but I love flowers. Real or fake flowers. Either will do. Especially if they are from my kids! My oldest daughter loves making flowers out of tissue paper and I’m pretty sure this DIY coffee filter flower craft will be her new favorite way to make flowers. This would also be a great Mother’s Day gift!
Since mother’s day is coming up super-duper soon, these flowers would be a great quick and easy craft for little ones (I did mine with a three-year-old) to make for their moms or grandmas.


  1. Coffee filters
  2. Pipe cleaners/chenille stems
  3. Washable markers (must be washable for the tie-dye look)
  4. Spray bottle full of water
  5. Newspaper
  6. Beads (optional)
Step 1 to 4

Step 1: Color a design on your coffee filter. I found it works best if you add lots of ink to each part.
Step 2: Put it on top of newspaper, and spray it with water. The more you spray, the more the colors will mix.
Step 3: Lay outside to dry.
Step 4: Layer them (totally optional) and pierce the center with a pipe cleaner. Fold down the bit that is poking through so it won’t slide off. (If you bead the stem, fold the end over the same way too.)
Fluff the flowers as much as you please!
