Recycled K-Cup Halloween Lights


Since Keurig K-Cups Cannot be recycled I have been saving them and saving them trying to think of a craft I could use them for.

    I wrote Kuerig a letter about not being able to recycle their cups. They did respond and told me that they are working on trying to come up with something that can be recycled....but then that was over a year ago, so who knows. But your use of the cups is really cute.

    Use colored lights and put them out for Christmas, or red, white and blue for patriotic holidays & pastel lights for easter, the colors you need for fall.
