{tutorial} Coffee Filter Snowflakes

by lowbeamstudios

As the snow blew around outside the other day, we made some of our own.



  1. round coffee filters
  2. watercolor paints and brushes
  3. scissors

I lay down a thick towel and let my kids douse the filters with color.  They dry fairly quickly.  Then we fold and cut.

The folding instructions below are for a six-point snowflake.  (I tend to be particular in regards to science so our snowflakes always have six points)

We hang all our snowflakes on the windows with clear tape.
