PILGRIM HAT K-CUP UP-CYCLING

Posted on Tue, Nov 10, 2015

Okay so I am now kind of obsessed with Kcup up cycling crafts. I mean, how could you not? They turn out super cute and create a second use for our spent Kcups. We have now made the Frankensteins, turkeys and here we are back at it with this ultra simple option...pilgrim hats.


Pilgrim Hat Materials:
  • multiple kcups, washed and dried
  • black acrylic paint OR black spray paint (both work fine) 
  • yellow acrylic paint
  • sponge brush
  • small paint brush
  • black foam from the Pilgrim hat
  • clear glue (I used Elmer's clear school glue)
  • glue dots
  • white ribbon 
  • scissors
Directions:
1.) Paint each of the used k-cups black and let dry several hours. 

2.) Cut a small circle for the brim of the Pilgrim's hat out of the black foam. I found a small lid on the baking powder in my spice cupboard and used that as a template.

3.) Use the clear glue to connect the k-cup to the black foam circle, making the brim. Allow it to dry. 

4.) Place a glue dot at the back of the Pilgrim hat at the base to hold the white ribbon. Gently wrap the ribbon once around the bottom of the k-cup (see photo) and use another glue dot to attach the end of the ribbon to the back of the k-cup. 

5.) Use a small paint brush to paint a tiny square on the front of the ribbon making the Pilgrim hat buckle. 

6.) Repeat with the desired amount of k-cups. 

This pilgrim hat craft is kid friendly and would make a great project for class parties!
Gobble, gobble!
