I used coffee filters, with coffee and tea to make mine, but I got a can of spray paint and sprayed the tips gold...
I had to make 50 of them for my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary party this summer. I wish I had a picture of the HUGE bunch of antique gold roses, but my grandmother wouldn't part with them long enough to let me take one. She LOVES them! They were only supposed to be decorations, but ended up being part of her gift, I guess...

Next time I go visit, I'll take pictures...I figure that with all the blisters and cuts I endured making these, I'm entitled to at least one shot, right? Tongue

50 of them? How long do they take to make?
and probably an obvious question, but i just want to make sure... if you colored the coffee filters with food dye or something, would you still be able to make it that nicely? We really don't drink coffee around here.

I think you could probably dye them with whatever you wanted...but a small container of instant coffee is cheap, too (that's what I used, since I don't stock coffee in the house)
From beginning to end, each rose took me about 3 minutes. I also snipped the sharp end of the pins off with wire cutters, and added some floral wire, then wrapped all the way to the base to make them long-stem...

First: Thank you SO much for posting this tutorial! I love this idea, and I immediately went out to go get coffee filters and start making these. My wedding is coming up in June, and these are perfect for decorations. I tried out the easter egg dye idea, though all I have are the tablet dyes, it works pretty well. This is my full attempt:




I've done four or five more since this, one is a smaller bloom I'm quite proud of, but I have no photos of those yet. Their all modelled after the roses in the first bouquet my fiancee bought for me. I wish I had the name of the exact type of rose they were, but they were gorgeous yellow/pink/orange/peach colors. I'm having the bridesmaids over today to run to Michaels and pick up some finer gauge wire, and possibly some cheap water colors. So, I should have more pics by tonight. I'll post them too if you guys want to see.

Thanks! ^^ I've been working really hard on these.. As promised here are the next few shots, these are actually older ones I made, but I wasn't quite happy with the way my water color roses turned out today. It'll take a day to find a work flow with them...

First though, here is one made by one of my bridesmaids earlier this week:



As you can see she attempted leave, but with the filter being so thin and the easter egg dye being so light, it clashes with the stem a bit.



This one is mine, I did a more triangular job with the petals so they would form points to make it feel more like one of the antique roses my grandma used to have.



Here's the smaller one I was tallking about. It looked better when it was more closed, but a few of the petals shifted. I'll have to refold them a bit more before I can use them.



This rose was one I'd made with just plain white filters. It was one of our very first attempts. I made this and one of my bridesmaids painted while somehow magically keeping the petals from shifting. Personally, I much prefer painting the petals before I put them together, though. All my other roses were done by just painting the petals after I cut them out, and they have gone beautifully. I do give them a base coat of yellow or light orange dye before I cut them, though.

Hope you guys like them! If you want, I'll post more as we get closer to the wedding.

Those are so beautiful, when I saw them I didn't even realize that they were filter flowers. I can't wait to see more.

Raine, your roses are stunning! These will be wonderful wedding decorations. I love the washes in the colouring. They remind me of my mothers roses. Where will you use them in your wedding. . . tables, arches, cars?
