What You'll Need:

  • Coffee filters
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Floral wire

Directions:

  1. Start by placing a coffee filter flat on your work space and cutting into the outside edge of the filter, working toward the center, creating a spiral cut. To create really nice roses, try to keep the cut around one-inch thick.
  1. Now starting at the outside edge, start rolling together the coffee filter rose until reaching the center. Then gently loosen and open the flower.
  1. Secure the rose at the base with a drop of hot glue, and then attach a length of floral wire to the back with another drop of hot glue.
  1. Your coffee filter rose is finished! Make a collection, and pop in a vase or use single flowers for adorning wrapped gifts, twist through an empty button hole, or wrap around the handle of your favorite bag.
