Supplies Needed to Make a Coffee Filter Easter Egg:
- Coffee Filter
- Food Coloring or Watercolors
- Glue Stick
- Card Stock
- Marker or Alphabet Stickers (optional)
Start out by flattening the coffee filter. Lay it on your work surface and simply push it flat as best as you can. Once it gets wet, it will lie flatter.
Use your scissors to cut the coffee filter into an egg shape. Lay the egg-shaped filter on a protected surface (such as an old cookie sheet or newspaper) and paint designs on it. You can apply water colors, or food colors, in various designs using a paint brush or a cotton swab. Let your design dry.
Once it is dry, use a glue stick to mount the egg on a piece of card stock. You can then use alphabet stickers or a marker to write a message. If you like, fold the piece of card stock in half, glue the egg to the front, and create a fun and easy Easter card to give to someone special.
