Upcycle your Keurig Kcups

As you know from my previous post I have been on a mission to re-use my coffee grinds,  I am happy to report, that was a very successful mission.  For weeks I have been saving my used coffee grounds and re-purposing them.  My favorite use has been for mulling spices.  I have been thoroughly enjoying the aroma of cinnamon, citrus and coffee simmering on my stove everyday.  The best part is,  it is made from up-cycled items that normally would have landed in the trash.

This has had me thinking lately,  can I go further with my mission?  Can I include the Kcup itself and the box in my up-cycling agenda?  Pinterest here I come.  I was pleasantly surprised to find many different ways to re-purpose both the Kcup and the box!

This week I present to you 13 Christmas crafts made from Keurig Kcups.

I chose crafts that you can do easily with your children to give you a little something to do over Christmas break : )

How fun are those ideas?! Have a little fun, get more bang for your buck and reduce your waste… who could ask for more? There is very little cost associated with these projects- just a few used K-cups (free), paints and a glue gun.

I will have several more for you next week including my favorite… seed starters!
