I know everyone is going a little Spring crazy right now! It's 50 degrees here in MN, and it feels like a heatwave! Everywhere I look, I'm seeing Spring decorations and colors. It's hard to resist the urge to buy stuff to bring some Spring into our home, but instead I am opting for some easy, quick crafts that are just as welcoming.
So here's a super-quick, easy way to turn coffee filters into some pretty flowers!
I used the smaller-sized filters, but you could definitely use larger ones for fuller flowers.
Fold it in half twice like so:
Then, twist the bottom and fluff the flower until it looks visually appealing. =)
Secure with floral wire:
Then, wrap some floral tape around the whole stem.
Just for funsies, I also grabbed my makeup kit and dusted some blush on the flowers for a little more color. You could also use tea to dye them darker, or spray on food coloring diluted in water to add a dose of color!
See how easy that was? And I didn't even spend a single cent. How are you welcoming Spring into your home this year?
