K - Cup Light Garland

We saved up all of the k-cups we used here at Hometalk for the past two weeks... Needless to say had a lot! We made a cute Kate Spade inspired light strand to hang on our Facebook Live set! We colored ours with gold polka dots but you can use any colors you want!

Start by collecting used K-cups!

Peel off the top foil lid

Dump out the remaining coffee grounds

Peel out the filter that is attached to the inside of the K-cup

Rinse out the cup!

Using a hammer and a nail, hammer a hole in the bottom of the cup

CAREFULLY use a knife and twist a hole big enough to for the light to pop through

After you've decorated the cups, pop them on to the light strand!

Look how cute!

We wrote "Hello Spring" on ours because we are so ready for spring here in NYC! What would you write on yours?!

    What is a toi rub? Because i could use it because i have a lot of celluite? I have a whole bunch of K-cups because that's our favorite kind of coffee, we also got plenty of light strands but we don't have Permanent Markers? Is there anything else i could use instead of Permanent Markers to write on the Pod with? Please Respond back ASAP! Thank-You!

    I know it's off base, but where did you get those pretty yellow bowls??

    Just wondering if there is a concern about the heat off the lights melting the plastic etc. any comment on this? Also I noticed you used white marker on the coffe cups. Does the light shine through the white??? Tks

    If you dont have k cups you could use plastic shot glasses

    The used grounds make great body scrubs and your plants like them too - unflavored kcups.
