There are just some things as a crafter that my mind is literally blown when I create. One of them is roses out of coffee filters. Y'all just can't imagine how real they look, even in person, and I'm floored by their stunning beauty, even when compared to real roses. They are lovely y'all.
To make the, Start with some coffee filters you can buy a package from the Dollar Tree for $1 y'all. The ones pictured here have been soaked in a watered-down red paint solution for about 10 mins, then taken out, rung out, and dried in the oven on 300 degrees for 20 mins. You'll need three of them, and then you'll go through a pretty simple folding and cutting process.
Once you have it folded in the shape of the ice cream cone, take your scissors and round the top so you end up with what appears to be a teardrop.
Now unfold it and you will have three coffee filters with what appear to be flower petals. You'll need to arrange them so that the petals are staggered. See the picture below:
Once you have the sheets staggard, refold them.
As you can see from the above examples, none are perfect, but they are perfectly beautiful. I was so super impressed with how these turned out. The tan-colored rose above was dyed with instant coffee, and they're a lovely compliment to Farmhouse Decor. I took an old vine cross I had and covered it in the roses. It turned out beautiful and I'm just so thrilled with how it looks. Y'all can see the cross I covered with them, and a close up of the roses below.
If you look closely you will see I stuck a few of the roses in that had been dyed with coffee, and then the edges painted with diluted pink paint. I thought it gave the piece a little more character.
I hope you loved this cross and the roses as much as I do. It's simply stunning and it looks great on my living room wall. Let me know if y'all try to do the roses, or if you make across from them. I know you'll be able to figure them out very easily. I caught on quick and didn't mess very many up. That's a real plus! These coffee filter roses will literally blow your mind. They're beautiful.
