You guys. I think this is my favorite of all the crafts we’ve ever done - in the top five at least. Prep was minimal; process was easy and fun; finished product is a gorgeous display we can all enjoy.
Here’s what we used:
Scissors and tape
Here’s what I did:
Folded coffee filters in half, then half again, then half again. Cut them so that, when unfolded, the filter will be flower shaped. (Click here for pictures of this from the original post. It took me a few tries to get it how I wanted.)
Gave the kids the folded filters and had them “tie-dye” designs with the dot markers. It's important to get the paint through all layers of the filters, so it comes through when unfolded. We turned some of them over and used a little marker on the other side to achieve this.
Unfolded. The filters were super soaked with paint, so this has to be done carefully. Let the flowers dry all the way. We dried them overnight, then did the rest the next day; I’m so on board with two part crafts.
The next day we taped them to the window (sliding glass door, actually). We used the window crayons to complete the picture!
