Whether you want to add some feminine flare to a side table, dinning table or bathroom, these coffee filter peony flowers are striking and inexpensive. Group a mix of colours for that extra punch or keep it simple and leave them white.

What You Will Need:
Coffee filters (white works best when working with colouring)
Floral stem wire
Floral tape
Glue
Scissors
Food colouring

Working with one coffee filter at a time, fold it in half, quarters, eighths and sixteenths. Cut a rounded edge on the end of the filter.



Complete bouquet

Unfold the filter and you will have a nice scalloped filter.



Complete bouquet
I used eight or nine filters per flower.

Take one floral wire and wind it a few times around your pencil.



Pencil wrap

Remove from the pencil and flatten. Thread your scalloped filters onto the end and push together.



Pencil wrap

Group the filters and secure with a dab of glue and floral tape, wrapped tightly around the wire and filters.



Pencil wrap

If you want to colour your flowers, simply mix up some food colouring in a bowl and dip the flowers half way. Let them dry on a piece of parchment paper.



Pencil wrap
My flowers took overnight to dry. You might try colouring the filters before threading them onto the wire to compare the drying time.

When the filters are completely dry, fluff out the edges and cut the wires to your desired length. Arrange them in a vase or container of your choosing.



Finished bouquet

Each flower takes approximately 7 minutes to make and the cost is remarkably low per flower. I will be making some more for a bare shelf in my bathroom!
