CIY Staff Tips:
- Mix and match different coloured paper towel and coloured coffee filters to get a variety of exciting flower designs.
- If a flower feels too loose, use a small piece of tape or a small amount of glue to hold it in place.
- Experiment using other fabrics or yarn to wrap your wreath.
- In lieu of a wreath, create a bouquet using the DIY flowers and chenille stems.
To make wicked flower, use markers to colour coffee filter.
Fold coffee filter in half 3 times to create triangle shape.
Place folded coffee filter, tip down, in small amount of water. Let water wick through filter.
Place wet coffee filter on paper towels. Dry 1–2 hours.
To make tie dye flower, place coffee filter on top of paper towels, colour with markers, then paint over with water. Dry 1–2 hours.
For both flower types, trim coloured paper towels to same width as coloured coffee filters.
Place paper towel on top of filter. Fold in half twice. Twist bottom to make flower shape.
