Gelli Arts® Printed Coffee Filter Flowers


Hi there! Its Marsha here today with a fun summer party decor project that the kids will enjoy making too!



Step 1:
Print with your Gelli Arts® printing plate on a couple of coffee filters using stencils and acrylic paint.


You will need one green printed coffee filter and two or three coloured printed coffee filters per flower.


Step 2:
Stain the gelli® printed coffee filters with spray inks.

Wet the coffee filter with a spray bottle of water before you spray on the spray ink. The water will help the spray ink spread across the coffee filter.

You can stack the coffee filters you want to have the same colour while spraying. Each new filter will absorb the excess ink from the already sprayed ones!


Leave the coffee filters to dry completely.


Step 3:
Fold the coffee filters into eights (or more) and cut leaf shapes.

Make sure to cut some larger and some smaller.


Step 4:
Unfold the coffee filters and stack two or three coloured ones on top of each other.


Turn the flowers over and put a pom pom in the middle.


Fold the flowers back over the pom pom.


Secure the pom pom with wire.


Fold the leaves back and fluff them until you are happy.


Step 5:
Adhere the flower on top of a green leafed coffee filter using a glue dot or a hot glue gun.


Step 6:
Use a flower as a topper for a present, glue them on sticks and make them into a bouquet or attach them to a piece of string to form a garland!

Happy summer!
