Coffee Filter Flowers
What You Need:
- Coffee filters
- Washable markers
- Spray bottle of water
- Pipe cleaners
- Green tape
|We started by coloring on the coffee filters using the washable markers.|
After we finished coloring, I sprayed the coffee filters with water, completely dousing the whole thing.
|Abby blowing on them to speed along the drying process. They dried REALLY fast, even without the additional help of an adorable 2-year old. We made them in the morning and they were easily dried by lunch time.|
The Finished Product
|A centerpiece. Kind of gather up the center of the coffee filter to make a cone-ish type shape. Wrap a pipe cleaner around it and pop it in a vase.|
|A made-over Winter Wonderland, though Eli did insist on keeping his penguins by their house. The leaves and stems are just green painters tape that I found at Walmart.|
The kids LOVED this and it was super easy. Eli and I actually did some more in the afternoon, while Abby was sleeping, at his request. I was surprised at how good it felt to be growing some Spring in our home. Our inside-March was in like a lamb...now if outside-March would just follow.
