How we did it:

Materials List

  1. liquid watercolors
  2. pipe cleaners
  3. coffee filters (or paper towels)
  4. pipette (or paintbrush or eyedropper)
  1. Gather your materials. Coffee filters work best, but paper towels will also do the trick. Protect your workspace with newspapers or paper bags.

  2. Pour some liquid watercolor into small bowls. Using a pipette, or paint brush, apply watercolor to the coffee filters. Try mixing different colors to form new ones!

  3. After allowing the coffee filter to dry, fold it in half to form a semicircle.

  4. Twist the corner and wrap a pipe cleaner on the end to make a stem. A full bouquet of coffee filter flowers is a lovely gift for a teacher, relative or dear friend!
