Supplies Needed For Coffee Filter Crafts Roses
Directions To Make Coffee Filter Roses
Separate one coffee filter for painting
Set out watercolors with a large, soft brush (these have been the easiest to use without ripping the coffee filters in my experience)
Paint and dry the artwork
Note: put something underneath the coffee filter because the watercolors leak through as you paint!
Once the coffee filters have dried, you can start turning them into coffee filter roses!
You will cut the coffee filter into a swirl.
Then roll up the coffee filter and either glue the end or tape it.
Note: This video will show you more in-depth what to do.

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.
