Simple Paper Flowers to DIY
- Deckle edged scissors (optional) or regular scissors
- Florist wire or twist ties
- Color pen or marker
How To Do It:
1) Using 2 to 3 paper coffee filters for each finished flower, use the deckle edged scissors (if on hand) to cut the edge all the way around. If using regular scissors, cut the edges of the coffee filters in a slightly wavy shape to mimic petals.
Use your finger to push the center of the coffee filter down forming a cone shape. Pleat and fold inward to form a flower shape.
2) Twist the pointy bottom of the coffee filter flower and then wrap with wire until secure. Real leaves can also be attached at this time using the wire at the base of the flower.
3) Add some color by drawing wavy lines in yellow in the center of the coffee filter flower. Then you're done! Pop them on top of presents or how about turning them into a floral crown!? See the tutorial for that here.
