I love coffee filter projects. It's so neat watching the colors blend together!
- coffee filter
- clear plastic cup
- markers or pens
- tissue paper (or wool/string)
- clear tape
- leave the coffee filter intact and color with pens, wet and then dry.
- thread some string throught the base of a plastic/paper cup so it hangs upside down, and then thread the string thought the base of the coffee filter so it hangs upside down over (and hiding ) the cup.
- Cut long thin streamers of tissue paper (or use wool or string) and stick around the base of the cup and coffee filter to make the tentacles.
They look great, the kids played around with them for an age and now they hang form the bedroom ceiling as decoration.
