Tie Dye Flower Initial

Summer Flower Initial

Use Crayola Markers on coffee filters and paper towels to create vibrant, customizable flowers for a unique, tie dye initial


Supplies Needed: Crayola Pip-Squeaks Washable Markers, Crayola Paintbrush, Crayola Scissors, Chenille Stems, Coffee Filters, Water, Paper Towels, Cardboard

  • 1.

    Draw the outline of your initial onto a piece of cardboard, and cut out the letter using Crayola Scissors. Set aside.

  • 2.

    Place a coffee filter on top of a paper towel, and use a Pip-Squeaks Marker to colour a design on the coffee filter. Make enough colourful coffee filters to fill up your cardboard initial.

  • 3.

    Dip a Crayola Paint Brush into water and dab onto the coffee filters to watch the colour spread. Keep each filter on a paper towel to dry.

  • 4.

    Once dried, set filters aside. Colours will have bled onto paper towel. Cut out each of the colourful designs on the dried paper towel to fit inside the filters. Feel free to mix and match colours from different flowers for colour variety.

  • 5.

    Fold your coffee filter and paper towel over and twist the bottom from the center to create the shape of the flower. Repeat to create all of your flowers.

  • 6.

    Wrap the ends of your flowers with a Chenille Stem to secure the flower and create the stem.

  • 7.

    Use the remainder of the chenille stem to wrap around your cardboard letter. Wrap around the base of your flower to secure it to your initial. If your flower feels too loose, use a small piece of tape or a small amount of glue to hold it in place.
