How to make Easy Coffee Filter Roses
You know I love my flowers full but for this one you will only need 3 coffee filters.
- fold your coffee filter twice to form a big triangle
- round off edges
and you will end up with scalloped coffee filter that looks like clover like form.
- take one of the cut filters and cut a tip off to form opening . Cut a slip of all coffee filters to the center to make folding much easier . We are so close to see out first coffee filter rose
- take a floral wire and lets begin. I like to start coffee filter roses with the filter that has a center of it cut out
- Start by gluing the end of the wire to the end of your first coffee filter. Now start to twist the filter around the wire, until its all wrapped around. I like to twist and squish the end.
- Wrap one of the scalloped filters on next. You can add a tiny dot of hot glue at the start to help it stay in place. Secure with a dot of glue when you come to the end. Now wrap the other scalloped filter the same way..beginning with a tiny dot of glue, and starting it a tiny bit below the previous one. As you wrap, you can manipulate the petals out to form a flower. The filters are pretty tough, and can handle some tweaking. End with a dot of glue.
- time to mold some of outer layers of coffee filters to your likings
This is always the best part of flower making .. playing with its layers. I am going to concentrate for sure on those as my bouquet will be coming alive
