Coffee Filter Crafts for kids of all ages

I would venture to say that every craft closet should have coffee filters in it. Why? They are really inexpensive! Plus, they are fun and easy to use in numerous different ways.

They can be painted, dyed, colored or kept plain. You can cut them, sew them, twist, and fold them.

Is it just me, or am I starting to write like Dr. Seuss? Would you use them in your house? Would you make them into a mouse? The answers would have to be yes and yes!

  • An origami coffee filter butterfly where you fold the coffee filter into a butterfly.

The most popular coffee filter DIY home decor is the wreath. You can see my version of a coffee filter wreath in the list below at #34.
