Get your table ready for Valentine's Day with these white coffee filter roses.
Spruce up your table by upcycling your old coffee filters. I ended up reusing my Christmas Centerpiece box and added in a piece of burlap.

Coffee Filters, twigs, twine, hot glue gun, mason jar and red pebbles
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
Repeat, repeat, repeat! And the bouquets are ready!!! Happy Valentine's Day!
