Flower Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Flower

Step by Step Instructions for our Coffee Filter Flower Crafts for Kids

You can always use these flower crafts for a variety of things. Here's a few ideas:

  • Give a bouquet of them to mom for Mother's Day. 
  • Leave one on your teacher's desk to show what a great teacher they are.
  • Decorate the house to welcome spring. 
  • Add one to a birthday gift instead of a name tag or card.

Step #1:

Decorate the inside of your coffee filter. This will be the pedals of your flower. We decided on a nice bright rainbow, coloured with a great colouring powder product called Ezyshaid (which we will review in the near future)

Step #2:

Place your yellow pom pom into the center of your newly coloured coffee filter. Fold the filter around the pom pom and wrap your pipe cleaner around the back side of the coffee filter. 

Flip your filter back around and flatten out your flower.

Add a small piece of pipe cleaner to the stem to make a leaf or two.

Now we've got ourselves some pretty flowers that can be made any time of the year! Make a bouquet of them - in all different colours!
