We had a blast with our rainbow marker & coffee filter science experiment. I can’t get over how gorgeous they turned out. But now that we have all these beautifully colored coffee filters, we needed to make them into something fun. We crafted them into a colorful bouquet for spring and summer!
These would make a great table display for a St. Patrick’s Day party. Or I know a few grandma’s who might love a floral bunch like this as a gift. Wouldn’t these make a great gift topper for a birthday present? Just attach them with some ribbon to complete the gift wrapping- so cute and colorful.
Coffee Filter Flower Bouquet
Supplies for Coffee Filter Flower Bouquet:
- 5-6 coffee filters
- markers or crayons
- elastic band or loom band
- straw or wood dowel
- washi tape
Start by coloring your coffee filters. You can simply decorate them with crayons or marker. Or give them rainbow colors with water and markers and this Rainbow Marker Coffee Filter technique – it’s a fun way to make this bouquet pop with color!
Once you have your coffee filters colored, gather each one in the center and twist it tight. This will gather the top and give it a bunched look.
Group all your twisted coffee filters together and attach them with a band to keep them in place.
Press your straw into the center of the band.
Add washi tape to the base of the flowers and the top of the straw to make it look clean and to keep all of the coffee filters in place. Use your favorite color and design of washi tape to personalize it.
Now it’s ready to display!
These would actually be fun to make for a festive party to hang, wouldn’t they? Make 10-12 for a garland to hang for decorations. So many possibilities with these rainbow coffee filter flower bouquets!
