What an inspiring project. I am not the owner of a coffee maker that uses k-cups but I am thinking there is something else I can use instead. I may have to paint over it if the item is not clear, but I am sure I can find something to make these with.

Recycling is always a great way to go. I like these little snowmen ornaments and the kids will get such a felling of accomplishment when they make these adorable ornaments.

I made cute little top hats and put "There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found. . ." on the bottoms. They turned out super cute and were very easy

This us an inspired idea. Every time I toss one of my k-cups into the trash I try to think of something I could be using them to make instead. Now I have at least one way. And it's so easy. The grand kids can help and as stated they will learn about recycling instead of just buying something new.
