Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cover table with plastic. Wearing rubber gloves, prepare dyebath by mixing hot water and Rit Dye. The ratio of water to dye depends on how many filters you’re dyeing and how vibrant you want them to be. For the filters pictured, we mixed 1/3 cup dye with 1 quart of water.
  • 2
    Grab a stack of filters and dip them into the dye bath for a few seconds until you are satisfied with the color. Separate filters and lay on paper towels to dry for at least one hour.
  • 3
    Use the coffee filters as wrapping paper by folding them around your gifts. Secure edges with tape or paper glue. Decorate with ribbons and yarn. TIP: Bundle four coffee filters together, fold them into quarters, and twist the bottom to create a beautiful flower gift topper.
