How to Make Coffee Filter Ornaments with Your Kids

A person uses coffee filters to make ornaments.

The holidays are the perfect time to get together with family and friends, and if you’re specifically looking for activities to do with kids, TikTok has you covered.

Content creator Celena Kinsey created a clever DIY for Christmas ornaments made from coffee filters, and it’s so easy that kids of all ages can do it.

To get started, you’ll need a coffee filter and washable markers. Let your kiddos color the filters until their hearts are content. When they’re done, spray the filter lightly with water and allow it to dry. The result will be a tie-dyed masterpiece.

Handheld Hole Paper Punch

Grab this hole punch to ensure your ornament DIY can come to fruition.

Next, using cardboard, cut out different ornament shapes like circles, ovals, and triangles. Glue the newfound tie-dyed filters to the cardboard and trim the edges. Then, punch a hole in the top, string it with twine, tie the twine at the top, and you’ve got an adorable, handmade ornament from your kiddo.
