K - Cup Easter Baskets

So from the leftover k-cups we had from a previous project, we figured out how to make them work for the upcoming holiday of Easter! We found an awesome way to make cute little easter basket table placements!

  • k cup easter baskets

Collect used K-cups from your home or office!

Peel off the foil of the k-cup and dump out the coffee ground remains. There will also be a filter part of the cup that you will need to tear out!

    I have hundreds of cleaned k cups. I use them as plant starter pots and start them in black plastic angel food containers with lids as mini green houses. I sell the aluminum lids back to scrap metal people and. I compost the coffee grounds.

    Perfect for breakfast table on Easter or May day. Very nice for senior centers if you had a group to make them up and deliver the day before Easter or May day to brighten their breakfast or lunch trays.
