Use removable double-stick tape or glue dots for this project to make it rental- or dorm-friendly.

Materials Needed:

  • small white coffee filters (30)
  • large white coffee filters (20)
  • yellow cardstock
  • removable glue dots or double-stick tape
  • 1" circle hole punch
  • purple liquid fabric dye
  • medium-sized bowl
  • plastic sheeting

Mix Dye

Fill a bowl with one cup of water and 1/4 cup of dye.

Tip: The ratio of dye to water can be adjusted based on how dark you want your color to be. Dip a few coffee filters to make sure you're happy with the shade before continuing with the project.

Dye Small Coffee Filters

Cover a large countertop or table with plastic sheeting or a drip-proof drop cloth. Dip a small coffee filter 1” into the dye. Set dip-side down on a flat surface. Repeat this process with 30 small coffee filters.

Dye Large Coffee Filters

Dip a large coffee filter 1" into the dye. Set dip-side down on a flat surface. Repeat this process with 20 large coffee filters. Let all the dipped coffee filters dry overnight.
