If you want to add some color to your home decor these DIY paper flowers are fun to make and super easy to put together. All you need is food coloring and coffee filters.

Rather than making these paper flowers entirely from sheets of colorful tissue, these papercraft peonies are made from unused coffee filters. Coffee filters already have the ideal circular and frilly shape that is perfect for replicating the look of flower petals. Begin by dying the coffee filters using food coloring. You can color the filters all one hue or create a gradient effect and darken the tone for each individual filter. Once the filters have dried you can scrunch them up and layer them together to create a peony using floral steam wire.
