Coffee Filter Parachute

Send your melty bead people on a wild adventure with a coffee filter parachute!

Follow this tutorial to create a melty bead person.

Step 3.

Split the coffee filter into six even parts and paint each section a color of the rainbow, as shown.

Step 4.

Punch a hole in the six spots that the colors meet, so they are evenly spaced apart.
