    Did you use the k cup hole to thread the string for the crystals or did you make a new centered hole. Also, how do you melt that fishing line to get a "knot"?

    Very cute , and I applaud your attempt to find a use for K cups. However I completely agree with Dianne. Plastic K cups are now one of the worst polluters on the planet. I shudder to think how many are floating around in the ocean. In my house, we have limited our usage to one per day,max, and have gone back to regular brewed coffee. Wishing these things had never been invented!
