Step 5: Spray the Coffee Filters with Water and Let Dry

Spray the colored coffee filters lightly with water. As the water hits the filters, the colors will begin to bleed together, creating a beautiful tie-dye effect. Allow the filters to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 6: Fold

Fold the coffee filter so it's folded in half once. Gather the center of the coffee filter by pinching the middle.
