Today I created an adorable Mother’s Day gift with items we had around the house. Here is a step by step tutorial to make your own, this is a simple and fun craft to do with the kids.
Supplies you will need:
Cups or bowls
Here it is step by step:
*I dyed the coffee filters shades of blue using watered down food coloring, you can make any color combo you would like. I dipped the filters in the cups of color then wrung out the excess water, and laid them flat to dry on newspaper overnight.
*Next, take a stack of 4-5 filter and fold them accordion style.
*To achieve several styles of flowers, I cut different designs at the ends of the folded filters. Frayed, wavy, and zigzag.
*Wrap a pipe cleaner around the center of the folded stack of filters and secure.
*Pull up the petals layer by layer, from the inside out.
*And you’re done!
*I put my bouquet in a mason jar and tied a bow of ribbon. This will make a cheap and easy gift for any special lady in your life this Mother’s Day :0)
