Paper Flowers

Making FlowersMaterials:
• coffee filter
• washable markers
• squirt bottle or small glass of water
 • green pipecleaner

•  Flatten out a coffee filter on a plate.
• Scribble the filter with washable markers.  We drew circles around with the markers, but you can just scribble blocks of color  instead if you prefer.Making flowers
•  Use a squirt bottle to spray the coffee filter 2 or 3 times. 
 • Let dry (this takes about 1/2 an hour, but will take longer if the filter has been soaked.
• Cut 2 or 3 inches off your pipecleaner and set this short piece aside.
• Poke the end of the pipecleaner through the center of the coffee filter (it does not have to be exactly the center).
• Roll about an inch of the pipecleaner end into a tight ball so the coffee filter won’t fall off the pipecleaner.
• Scrunch the coffee filter around the end of the pipecleaner.
• Wrap the short piece of pipecleaner you cut off earlier around the coffee filter/pipecleaner to hold them together.

Optional:  fold the stem of the pipecleaner to make a leaf shape.
‘Plant’ your flower in a small vase, terra cotta pot or paper cup (a little plasticine in the bottom of a small pot or cup will hold the flower upright..add a bit of green tissue paper or easter basket grass to fill the pot or cup) Or… attach your flower to the front of a card or gift to decorate it.  You can even make a big bouquet of them and give to your mother for Women’s Day.
