This coffee filter flower craft for the kids is made with coffee filters, markers, pipe cleaners and water in a spray bottle. The kids will love watching the marker ink spread!
Make Something Monday- Coffee Filter Flowers Craft
For our Make Something Monday craft this week, my daughter and I made coffee filter flowers (my son is with grandma this week).
These little flowers were so easy and so much fun, my five-year-old was pretty much able to do this one all on her own.
Materials needed for Coffee Filter Flowers:
- Coffee Filters
- Washable Markers
- Spray Bottles
- Pipe Cleaners
Color the coffee filters with the markers.
Spray the filters with water.
Lay them out to dry and watch the colors run together. (They dry really fast in the sun!)
Optional: Put on a pretty headband and pose with your dry coffee filters. 😉
Fold the coffee filters into fourths. You can experiment with different folds for different looks.
Pinch the bottom of the coffee filter and wrap the end of a pipe cleaner around the pinched area.
Tada! You’ve got a coffee filter flower! Make a bunch for a pretty bouquet.
