Faux Vintage Coffee Filter Flowers

By: Regena Allen
Faux Vintage Coffee Filter Flowers

Use coffee filters to learn how to make paper flower crafts that you will love. This recycled, yet stunning DIY craft idea is surprisingly easy and you are going to love the way it looks. The Faux Vintage Coffee Filter Flowers will add a truly vintage and old school touch to any room. Vintage craft ideas that are budget-friendly can be hard to come by. Many of them actually require vintage fabrics or notions, making them hard to make while penny pinching. This DIY paper flower idea, however, only requires coffee filters!

Primary TechniqueFlorals/Wreaths



Materials List

  • Tea Stained Coffee Filters (usually 4 to 6 for each flower)
  • Hot glue
  • Regular Drinking Straws
  • Brown Marker
  • Scissors
  • Floral Wire
  • Masking Tape

Make several different shapes and sizes and put in a vase filled with moss! BEAUTIFUL for a center piece on your coffee table!


  1. Take 4 to 6 filters and fold them together in half 3 to 4 times. ( if they are too thick to cut only do 2 or 3 together)

  2. Cut the rounded edge in any kind of pattern. My favorite way is lots of small cuts to give the flower a fringed edge.

  3. Barely snip the smallest tip of the folded filters, ( this will leave a small hole to pull the straw thru)

  4. Open the filters and one at a time slide over the straw leaving about a quarter of an inch showing to make the center of the flower the stigma.

  5. Twist the filter around the straw and hot glue it to make it stay around the straw. apply masking tape around it pulling tight and wind down the straw covering it. Do this to each filter twisting tightly around the bottom of the filter before it glue it then wrap it until you have used as many as you want for your flower.

  6. If you want a leaf, take another filter and cut out a leaf shape. Outline it with your marker and add a few veins.To keep it from drooping hot glue a piece of floral wire down the middle of the leaf.

  7. Glue your leaf onto the straw close to the base of you flower and wrap with masking tape.

  8. Wrap the rest of the masking tape the straw until completely covered, glue ever so often to secure it.

  9. Now shape your petals and leaf to your desire and you have your antique flower!

This is one of my faborite crafts. I love making faux flowers. I have knit them, crochet them, used beads, tissues and clay. Now it's time for coffee filters. I want to make enough to cover a wreath for the wall in my kitchen.thnks for sharing this great project and inspiring me.

I really like these simple to make roses. it is a fun craft to make to pretty up a sign or just to have kids make for fun. You can also try using markers or kool aid to dye them all sorts of different colors. My next project is to make some fun spring colors to make a bouquet to put on my side table for spring.
