These coffee filters roses are easy to paint, cut, and glue to make beautiful roses.

Step 1

Separate one coffee filter for painting

Step 2

Set out watercolors with a large, soft brush (these have been the easiest to use without ripping the coffee filters in my experience)

Step 3

Paint and dry the artwork

Note: put something underneath the coffee filter because the watercolors leak through as you paint!

Step 4

Once the coffee filters have dried, you can start turning them into coffee filter roses!

Step 5

You will cut the coffee filter into a swirl.

Step 6

Then roll up the coffee filter and either glue the end or tape it.

Why We Love This Coffee Filter Rose Craft

Since my preschooler loves to paint, we wanted to come up with a way to paint and to make more roses.

So, we grabbed some  coffee filters.

I love using coffee filters as a canvas for watercolors because the colors spread and mix together as you paint.  The blending of the vibrant colors are what make these roses such a special coffee filter craft.

I adore coffee filter crafts.

I don’t brew any coffee at home, but I somehow  always have an excess of coffee filters. The good news is that having them has inspired lots of coffee filter crafts.
