Filter Flowers

Coffee filter flowers colored with bingo dabblers.

Approximate Time: 15 minutes per flower


  • assorted bingo dabbers
  • spray bottle of water

  • 1 pipecleaner or wire
  • tooth pick or skewer
  • green type of electrical tape
  • 6 round coffee filters
  • plastic table cover


Lay out some plastic table cover (drop cloth or old shower curtain). Lay out 6 round coffee filters. Dab filters with a couple of bingo dabber colors. Take spray bottle with water in it and gentle spritz the filters.

Let the colors run into each other, you can always dab more color if you want. Let dry - this dries fast.

Once dry, gather up the 6 filters and pile together. Take a bamboo skewer or toothpick and make a hole in the centre through all the filers. Push a pipecleaner or wire through the hole and try to create a ball so it doesn't slip out. The bottom of the pipecleaner will be the stem. Now by folding and gathering the filters, make the bottom portion as small as possible so you can wrap the tape around. Do not put the tape too low or it will slip out and not hold secure enough.


Once you have secure the filters on the stem, start separating the filters in different direction creating a flower effect. It is OK to twist the paper to create shape.

This is a very easy craft which also looks beautiful if you leave the filters just white. For leaves, you can make your own or use leaves for other artificial arrangements and add on with green wire. Filler flower are inexpensive, great for a shower party, picnic, even wedding.
