You will need:

  • Torn tissue paper in various colors
  • Coffee filter
  • Green pipe cleaner
  • Brush
  • Water in a cup
  • Paper plate

Tissue Paper Flower Craft

To make these coffee filter flowers, you will not be gluing the tissue paper to the coffee filters. This confused my daughters at first who kept asking how the tissue paper would stick to the coffee filter. You will just be transfer the color of the tissue paper to the coffee filter using a brush with water.

Have your child place the torn tissue paper on the coffee filter and “paint” over it with the brush and water.
