    Place your folded coffee filters in a small amount of water so that the tip of your triangle touches the water. Watch as the colour spreads and wicks away! Place wet coffee filters on a sheet of paper towel and allow to dry.

    While flowers are drying, wrap a foam circle wreath with a fabric of your choice. Tape down the ends so that your fabric stays put.

    Use the pipe cleaner stem to wrap around your wreath. Wrap around the base of your flower to secure it to your wreath. If your flower feels too loose, use a small piece of tape or a small amount of glue to hold it in place. Add decorative leaves to accent before giving to mom!
