Coffee Filter Flower


  • 6 coffee filters per flower
  • Scissors
  • Stapler or hot glue gun
  • Optional: Craft wire or pipe cleaner
  • Optional: Anything you’d like to color the filters!


  • Stack three coffee filters and flatten as much as you can.
  • Fold in half, then fold again into quarters, and cut the edges to be scalloped or pointed.
  • Repeat with three more filters.
  • Stack and staple together at the base of the fold.
  • Open your folds as much as you can (it won’t be completely flat but that’s OK).
  • Gently pull apart each filter to fill out your flower and until it’s a puffy bloom for your tabletop.
  • Insert a pipe cleaner or wire through the center if you’d like to have a stem.
