Making DIY Coffee Filter Flowers: The Complete Guide

This post was originally one sweet little DIY tutorial all set to go live at 9am this morning then I got immersed in the intoxicating world of coffee filter flowers and ended up adding another and another until I was up to my eyeballs in coffee filter tutorials and inspiration! So it took waaay longer than expected but I do hope you’ll find it useful. If you’re looking for a cheap, simple and pretty DIY project for your wedding, coffee filter flowers could be just the thing! Photo via Just Simple Designs Who knew coffee filters could look so pretty? The great thing about coffee filter flowers is that they can be used in so many different ways, from decor (they’d make a mean ceremony backdrop) to centerpieces, place settings, wreaths and, if done in miniature, they’d look so sweet attached to escort cards or favor boxes!

You could even create a bunch of them, attach them to ribbon wrapped florist’s wire et voila! Dying Coffee Filters. Dreamcatchers. I’m really diggin the whole hippy thing.


And while Craig is quick to correct me on the fact that dream catchers are not hippy-ish, I still think of them that way. Natural, care free, simple. All things I relate to those old hippies. hah.

A few weeks ago I saw this idea for water blobs floating around online and decided to try it ourselves the next time we were having friends over to play.

Water Blob: Tutorial

Can I just say that this “water blob” was amazing amounts of fun. I layed on it, the kids jumped on it, slid across it and spent the entire day doing all sorts of crazy acrobatics. We loved it so much that I almost can’t wait to do another one. And the next one will have glitter in it… tons of glitter. So what is a “water blob” and how do you make one? How do you make one? Fold the plastic sheeting in half and tape the three open sides with duct tape (it helps to have assistance) but leave open a small hole for the water hose.

Put the water hose in it and let it fill. It is that simple and that fun. It did get a few small leaks on the edges throughout the day but we simply fixed them by applying more tape to the leaky spot. So go conquer the blob! Edited to Add: You MUST use heavy plastic sheeting. Bobbie Latest posts by Bobbie (see all) Hanging String Balls. How to cut glass.
