Washable Markers and Water Spritzer (water colors or Easter Dyes are other coloring options)
Clear Tape (packing tape works well because it holds a little stronger)
Pencil (colored or printed ones can be found at Dollar Tree)
Ribbon or small vase
Newspaper to cover work area and paper towels
When dry, fold a coffee filter in half, fold again. Repeat two or three times depending on how many petals you want and how wide.
Cut a curved shape on the wider end of the folded filter. Cutting deeper on the sides creates longer petals.
Cut 3 filters and open each filter. Lay filters on top of each other so that the center is lined up. Fold all three together in half and once again into fourths. Snip off the point a very tiny bit(this should be the center of all three filters)
Open all filters and slide pencil through the hole until the last 1/2 inch.
Bunch up the filters and secure with tape.
Open filters petals and arrange.
VariationUse Chenille stems in place of pencils.
