Activity Overview

Create unique and colorful paper flowers out of cone shaped coffee filters, food coloring, and pipe cleaners. This is a fun and easy activity that all ages can take part in. Make an individual flower or several to form a beautiful bouquet of vibrant splendor. Use the homemade paper flowers as gifts, display in a vase or use to decorate wrapped gift packages.


  • 4 white cone shaped coffee filters
  • Food coloring in a variety of colors
  • A few small cups of water
  • Long Green pipe cleaner
  • Paper Towels

How to Make Them

  1. Drop 10 droplets of food coloring into each cup of water ( about 1/4 cup of water per cup).
  2. Stir the mixtures until the color is evenly distributed.
  3. Fold each of the coffee filters over two times so that each filter has four equal segments.
  4. Carefully dip each edge and tip of each filter into a different cup of colored water.
  5. Unfold the conical coffee filters and lay them out of a paper towel to dry completely.
  6. Insert each of the coffee filters inside of one another.
  7. Pinch the bottom tip of the filter bunch together.
  8. Wrap 1/3 of the green pipe cleaner around the base of the filter that you just cinched working your way down to the point.
  9. Keep the rest of the pipe cleaner straight and facing straight down for the stem.
  10. Repeat these steps with additional filter sets to create a vibrant coffee filter paper flower bouquet.
