5 Ways to Re-Use a Keurig Kcup Box


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. I have since moved on to include re-using the Kcup itself.  I hope that you have enjoyed my last two posts that included almost 30 ways to reuse your Keurig Kcups!

Now it is time to put on my re-purposing thinking cap again and come up with uses for the box the Kcups come in (with a little help from Pinterest!).

1-A rabbit feeder (I dont have a rabbit but,  this one made me smile!).

5-A shadowbox (I have also done this myself and my daughter loved it!)

I was hoping to come up with 10 ideas and that did not quite happen.  Can you help me come up with 5 more so I dont feel like I failed : )

14 Christmas Crafts Made From Keurig K-cups

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 14 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 : )
