Coffee Filter Heart - Fine Motor Craft

I've been obsessed with this craft since I first saw them here.  It is so simple, no glue, great fine motor exercise, and turn out beautiful!  I love how the coffee filters look like flowers, so attaching them to hearts make this a perfect Valentine's Day craft.

What you need:
  • Cardboard or cardstock (We used cardstock, but I think cardboard would have worked better).
  • pencil
  • coffee filters (dyed or not dyed)  


Cut the card into a heart shape and use a pencil to poke holes in it.

Fold the coffee filter in half several times, then twist the bottom.  (I ripped some of the filters in half before folding so they "flowers" would be in various sizes, and I liked the way it turned out when I did that).  You'll want to twist the folded filter at least half way up to create a "stem."

Then just pull the "stem" through one of the holes and fluff.

Both pulling and the fluffing offer great fine motor practice.

I think this one came out just lovely.  I love the way the red peeks through!

Here's the flip side when you're done.  I cut and taped some down so we could tack them on a bulletin board.
