Watch your child’s face light up as he or she transforms a coffee filter into a beautiful watercolor flower. Making one is so simple and fun that your child will have a blooming bouquet in no time!

What You'll Need

  • pipette (or paintbrush or eyedropper)

How We Did It

Liquid Watercolor Flowers

Gather your materials. Coffee filters work best, but paper towels will also do the trick. Protect your workspace with newspapers or paper bags.

Liquid Watercolor Flowers

Pour some liquid watercolor into small bowls. Using a pipette, or paint brush, apply watercolor to the coffee filters. Try mixing different colors to form new ones!

Liquid Watercolor Flowers

After allowing the coffee filter to dry, fold it in half to form a semicircle.

Twist the corner and wrap a pipe cleaner on the end to make a stem. A full bouquet of coffee filter flowers is a lovely gift for a teacher, relative or dear friend!
