Let The Fun Begin
Once the coffee filters are dyed the messy part of this fun and easy project is over. Six dyed coffee filters for each flower is what you are going to need. Starting with three at first. Lay the three coffee filters flat. You are going to fold them in half. Then fold them in half again. Once again you are going to fold. This is the last fold making four folds in total. Taking your marker you are going to press against the edges. This helps with making them flat and helps with the creases.
Easy Way To Draw Coffee Filter Flowers
Now that we have are coffee filters folded we need to draw the flower shapes. Trust me it is not hard. What is great is it doesn’t have to be perfect. Taking your marker you are going to draw four circles at the top of the filter. Yep, it’s that easy. Creating four petals. Next taking your marker you are going to make two lines along the sides. Yep, we are done with the artwork. Nope, it wasn’t hard.
Shaping the Coffee filter Flowers With Scissors
Once done with the artwork grab your small pair of scissors. The sharper the better. Cutting threw all these layers you want a sharp pair. Starting with the right-hand side with the line cut carefully up to the petals. Once at the top go around three of the petals. You want that forth petal to connect to the stem. Try not to cut threw it. Next cut down the left-hand side of the line. Once finish open up your coffee filter. If there are some flowers that are connected you will want to trim them carefully to make sure they form a flower and are not together.
Repeating The Process
Taking the next three coffee filters you are going to repeat the folding process. Making sure you fold them four times in halves. Don’t forget to use a marker to help to make them flat. Once flat you will want to draw the petals with the marker. It doesn’t matter if they are not exactly the same as the other one so don’t worry. It will turn out perfectly in the end. Cut out the same way starting with the right-hand side. I found this to be the easiest way for me. You may find out there is an easier way for you. The outcome will be the same. But I am right-handed so it may be different for lefties. You are going to unfold the coffee filters making sure your flowers at the top are not connected.
Now that you have everything cut out place all six coffee filters on top of each other. At this point, you want to heat your glue gun up. Once your glue gun is ready you are going to start shaping your flower. Folding you filters in half and fold them in half once again. It is pretty easy just many folds. Trust me, in the end, it will be so worth it.
Add a bead of glue and fold flower together. Making sure it holds. Now comes the easy part fluff it out to you get the look you want. Fluffing and shaping to create that perfect flower. These can be used for home decor, shelve sitters, wall decor and much more. The ideas are endless.
