What can you do with coffee filters sizes 4 and 6? Is there any type of craft that they can be used for? I have all these left over filters and I have no use for them anymore, but I really don't want to throw them away.

I used coffee filters and made flower arrangements for the tables at a reunion. They went over really well. This is one pic. I've done other colors too. So much fun to do and very easy. Fold and cut the filters, color them and dry them (this take a little time and then attach to sticks or straws and arrange).
Cut shapes from white poster board such as a cross, flower, heart. Hole punch the top of the shape.
Color the coffee filters with markers.
Use a water bottle and gently spray the filter.
Glue to the cardboard shape and gently tear off the excess filter.
Poke the hole with a pencil and use ribbon or yarn to be able to hang a really cool piece of "tye-dye" art.
