The Coffee Filter Rose Tutorial

Supplies:
Coffee Filters, preferable cone shaped filters. I couldn't find any so I used regular ones.
Floral Wire, I used 22 gauge.
Floral Tape
Scissors
Awl or Needle
Paintbrushes
Water Color Paint
Water for paint
Dowel or something to curl petals



Step 1:
Cut petal shapes in a range of sizes
Cut wire long enough for the stem of the rose
Cut strips of floral tape 1-2'' long until you are sick of cutting (you'll need quite a few of these)



Step 2:
Bend the tip of wire at approximately 1/2''



Step 3:
Roll one of your smallest petals. This will be the center of the flower



Step 4:
Pierce the rolled petal with your awl or needle



Step 5:
Push the wire through the hole in the first petal.



Bend the wire down so it is flat.



Step 6:
Wrap the petal and stem with a strip of floral tape.



Step 7:
Form into petal shape



Pinch the petal at the base to form a slightly convex shape.



You'll do this for all the petals of the rose.



Step 8:

Add more petals using strips of floral tape in a spiral with petal slightly overlapping.

If you are right-handed add in a clockwise fashion.
If you are left-handed add in a counter clockwise fashion.
Later on while shaping the petals with the dowel, this will make things easier.







Now you have an unpainted rose.



Step 9:
Begin painting the rose with water colors. The coffee filters tend to soak up the paint making painting the inside areas easy.

Paint the outside petals working inward towards the center of the rose.

As you paint each petal, curl the tips of the petals with your dowel. I used a double pointed knitting needle that I made too short. The other side of your paintbrush can also work.

It is better to over-curl, since they uncurl a bit while drying.





Continue painting until you are done. Hang upside down to dry.
Congratulations! You made your very own coffee filter rose! Now make a gazillion more until you drive yourself insane!
