Create Pretty Spring Flowers

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

Spring is here! March 20th officially marked the first day of spring. Get a head start on celebrating the change of season with these adorable coffee filter flowers.


  • Washable Markers
  • Coffee filter
  • Spray bottle
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Plate


  • Use markers to color the coffee filter.  Be creative and make fun squiggles and designs—it is not necesary to color the entire filter.
  • Place the filter on glass plate. Use the spray bottle to lightly mist the coffee filter until the marker starts to blend.
  • Let filter dry.
  • Fold the filter in half and then in half again, resulting in a small triangle shape.
  • Wrap a pipe cleaner around the tip of the filter.
  • Pull the filter apart and shape into flower.

Add finished flowers to a pretty vase and display them on  a table. Make a few of them and give them to friends or family to help them welcome spring!
