Make a simple coffee filter flower!
Your child can make a beautiful bouquet of flowers without leaving the house! This is an easy craft to make at home, using items from around the home.
Markers, or watercolors
Chenille sticks, a small stick of some sort that you have around the house to be used for a stem.
Spray bottle with water
First color your coffee filter.
Lay the filter on a waterproof surface and mist with water from a spray bottle (if using watercolors, skip this step). The colors will run into each other.
Let the filter dry.
Then fold the filter in half and half again to make a crease.
Lay the stem (chenille stick, straw, stick, etc.) on the filter.
Tape the stem into place.
Then fold the filter over the stem into a quarter of the filter and tape along the bottom edge of the filter.
Arrange the petals of your flower.
If you would like, cut a scalloped edge to your flower for a different look.
After you finish your flowers, post them with #BrookgreenAtHomeKids so we can see your masterpiece.
