Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!
Get your table ready for Valentine's Day with these white coffee filter roses.
Materials:
Coffee Filters, twigs, twine, hot glue gun, mason jar and red pebbles
Here are the step-by-step instructions:
1. Fold filter in half
2. Fold in half again
3. Fold in half one more time
4. Use a total of 8-10 filters for each flower
5. Trim an arc along the top of 4-5 of the folded filters
6. With the remaining filters trim even more off the top creating 2 different sized "petals"
7. Unfold the filters once and you should have a heart shape
8. Cut the filters into quarters
9. Run hot glue along the center of the smaller petals {hearts}
10. Place the twig in the center and fold over the petal
11. Roll the petal around the twig
12. The first few petals should be rolled tight to create the center of the rose
13. Continue to add more petals
14. The smaller petals should all be rolled fairly tight to the twig
15. The petal rolls don't have to be perfect!
16. The small petals should create a good start to the rose
17. Now add all the larger petals
18. Make sure the filters at the base of the rose is very tight against the twig
19. Attached the twine with a dot of hot glue gun
20. Wrap the twine around the base of the rose and part of the twig, cut and secure with another dab of hot glue.

Repeat, repeat, repeat!
The bouquets are ready!!!  I'm ready for Valentine's Day!
I reused my Christmas Centerpiece box and added in a piece of burlap.
