From PW'er tglover:


Paper flowers from coffee filters?  You'd better believe it! 



You will need:


Regular coffee filters


Scissors


Coat hanger


Wire cutters


Regular tape


Floral tape 


 


Step 1: Uncoil the hanger’s hook, cutting off about 1/3 of the wire


Step 2: Twist hook into a loop (this will be the center of the flower but doesn’t show. Try to flatten as much as possible.



Step 3: Take 10-15 coffee filters, don’t separate them.  Using the folds as a line, cut down the center of each fold around entire filter


Step 4: Poke a small hole through the center of the filters


Step 5: Taking one of the “petals,” fold it in half, then cut in a V shape.  Cut each petal out this way.




Step 6:  Separate all of the filters.  Thread each filter one at a time on the coat hanger, scrunching the petals around the outside of the hanger loop.



Step 7: Tape the bottom of the filters to keep them from sliding off, then finish off with floral tape around the hanger



**TIP**pinching the bottom of the filters will help the finished product look more real.


 


**ALTERNATE FLOWERS**


Rounded petals, no cuts, and mini muffin cups!
