These flowers are super easy to make, and completely customizable with the how you choose to decorate the coffee filter. My preschool kids love making these!

Here’s a few other ideas to make these flowers unique:

  • Make a variety of these and cut the coffee filters into different sizes.
  • Add two coffee filters instead of just the one in our instructions. Make the second filter a smaller size, gives your flower some extra petals.

Coffee Filter Flower

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes
Difficulty: easy

A simple preschool craft which lets little kids make coffee filter flowers from inexpensive materials! Aimed at kids from age 3 onwards.


  • Coffee filters
  • Crayons, markers, paint
  • Pom pom (yellow)
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Scissors


    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 coloring 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 colors!


You can switch the crayons for coloring pencils or even paints. There is not limit as to what designs you can do on the coffee filter. You could even glue on glitter or sequins!
