DIY Flower Wall Art

Would you be surprised to hear this floral masterpiece was made of coffee filters? Yup, that’s right – coffee filters! Here’s how you can re-create it.DIY Flower Wall Art Nadia

Supplies:

  • Hula Hoop
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Package of Coffee Filters
  • 1 Muffin/Cupcake Liner
  • Gold Spray Paint

 

Directions:

Remove the coffee filters from their packaging and flatten them out by laying a heavy object on top of them. For example, I used an old Dictionary to straighten them out.

While that’s happening, in a well ventilated area, lay the muffin liner on newspaper and spray with the gold spray paint from a safe distance. Make sure its covered evenly and leave to dry thoroughly.

Next, lay the hula hoop on newspaper and begin to hot glue the coffee filters to the center of the hoop and follow it all the way around. Once you’ve covered the hoop, begin to circle in and glue the next set of filters to the center of the first round. Continue to circle/spiral in until you get to the center and have nothing but a small hole remaining. This is where you will hot glue the gold muffin liner to make a center for your flower.

Leave laying down to completely dry and set. To hang, simply use 2 thumbtacks. Voila!

 

How did yours come out? Send me pictures!
