Coffe Filter Mums


I know, I know another coffee filter craft I'm sorry but they are so inexpensive and so easy to work with!

So today I will show you how to make these Coffee Filter Mums. These are just the basic mums I will do more with them later but I wanted to get the basic flower out of the way first.

Don't forget this is the last day to enter my giveaway Here.

Supplies needed:

Coffee Filters
Stapler
Spray Paint
Scissors

To begin just spray paint several coffee filters in the color or colors that you want.



Stack at least four coffee filters on top of each other they can be the same or varying colors whatever you'd like.



Place a staple in the center of the stack of filters.




Take and cut slits down to where you can see the middle circle of the coffee filter.



Continue cutting all the way around the filters.



This is what you end up with it doesn't matter the spaces of cuts you make just whatever you want.



Then just take and smash up your cuts in your hand towards the middle of the filters all the way around.




Here is what you should have so far.

Now take and turn it over to the back of your now flower.



Pinch the middle together and staple together.



This is a second option for after you have all the slits cut for a slightly different look.
Scrunch into a ball.


Pull each coffee filter upward one at a time then continue as with other option.


Your done you have your basic Mum!
