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!

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!

Rinse out the cup!

We used yellow paint and also blue paint as you will see below!

Paint the entire cup! Outside and inside!

Using hot glue, put two drops of glue on each side of the inside of the cup for a handle.

Using cardstock paper, glue a thin piece of it to either side of the cup!

      Looks like sharpies on cotton, then drop rubbing alcohol on it and it spreads. Its a fun, easy project. Must use cotton tho.

      The coffee grounds should be saved for your garden. Rose bushes will flourish from them.

    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.
