There’s just something about paper flowers. They are easy to make and never wilt or die. I like to design paper flowers on my Cricut cutting machine using card stock, but did you know you can make beautiful flowers using plain ol’ coffee filters? Yes, that’s right — you can make coffee filter flowers. You’ll be amazed at the results you can get from an inexpensive package of coffee filters. The texture of the filters really lends itself to making genuine-looking petals.

Today I made two coffee filter flowers  — a white rose and a pink rose — to put in my entryway. It was simple and fun!

All-White Coffee Filter Roses

If you like the pure look of all-white roses, coffee filters are perfect! With these roses made by Kathy at UpToDateInteriors, each petal is shaped like a real rose petal to give it a more realistic look. And I think they look pretty amazing!

Coffee Filter Peonies

Oh, how I love peonies! Coffee filters are ideal for making these beauties because they have SO MANY petals and that takes quite a bit of paper. My giant paper peony requires more than 50 sheets of paper. But coffee filters are inexpensive and plentiful, so this is a great solution. And look at these gorgeous, lemon yellow peonies made by Rebecca. I’m in love!

Coffee Filter Poppies

Do you remember the field of poppies from The Wizard of Oz? Well, these poppies won’t make you sleep as those did. They’re just cheerful flowers made from coffee filters. One of the things I love about these poppies made by Beth is their size — they are quite large, and really stand out. The coffee filter poppy tutorial by Bethany at shows you how to dye the coffee filters to get a poppy color, too!
