*previously posted on Kelly’s blog, but wanted to share it here, too*
I have two little kids, 3 and 18 months, and love to do quick, easy, fairly-mess-free crafts with them, so today, i’d love to share with you this Coffee Filter Flowers project using materials you ALREADY have in your pantry.
1. coffee filters
2. food coloring (The Wilson frosting colors worked much better than regular food coloring)
4. glasses of water
1. Fold filters (I actually kept 2-3 together so that the coloring goes a little faster.
2. Dip and allow to dry.
3. Fold colored filters and pinch at base. Tape or staple to secure.
4. Fluff out each individual filter to help shape the flower . Decorate with as desired. I added them to artificial stems I already had and put in a vase, glue two together back-t0-back to make a hanging ball, or you could string together as garland, etc.
if you’d like to remember this project for a rainy spring day, would you consider “pinning” it?
