How-to: Make a Coffee Filter Broach

Cut the filters
After brewing a pot of coffee, remove the filter and gently clean away coffee grounds. Lay filter on a flat surface to dry. Repeat until recommended quantity is achieved.

Then take the filters and fold them in half. On five of the filters, mark a spot 2.75” from the center of folded edge of the filter using a ruler.

Leave the filters folded.

I’m a lifelong crafter with many different interests. My latest obsession is making accessories for women's hair and making flowers from a variety of recycled and repurposed materials.
