That is my next project too so please keep me posted. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 Are you dying yours? I made 100 coffee filter peony’s for my friends wedding and I dyed them with RIT dye and a paint brush. I loved the way they turned out.

Someone here had a great tutorial they did long ago.  You might try a search for it.  It was awesome!

It really does take a couple of tries to get them just right, and you need to have a LOT of patience. With a little pracitce you will be able to get them to look just how you want them to. If you are going to colour them then may I suggest dipping them in your dye & water mixture, I found that they ended up being a lot more evenly coloured that way, and it took a lot less time than painting them all with a brush.  Good luck and keep at it.
