This is Day 1 of 14 Days of Valentines, a countdown to Valentine's Day one craft at a time.
Love the look of fresh blooms, but hate the whole wither & die aspect of them? Lacking a valentine or have one that drops the ball on the whole flowers bit? Here's a simple craft to make your own blooms that are guaranteed to last. Now, if you miss the sweet fragrance of fresh flowers ~ try this with your favorite dryer sheets!
- Coffee filters
- Pipe Cleaners (I used brown because I had them on hand)
Take one coffee filter fold in half and then continue folding in half four more times.
Round off the edges of the widest end.
Repeat steps 1&2 until you have your desired fullness for the flower.
Open up one coffee filter and begin gathering the other filters inside the open filter.
Wrap pipe cleaner around gathered filters.
Fluff out the filters and you're done!
13 days and counting!
Until next time,
