Do you accumulate the coffee pod containers?  Even though we buy the Canadian Beaver Rock brand, which are totally recyclable (if your area accepts them) I still like to save them for craft projects.  In our house only my husband drinks coffee but we still get quite a few of them over a while.

These ones separate easily and you have a little outer container with a hole in the bottom and a basket like inner piece.  I haven’t found an idea for the basket liner yet, but I’m still thinking about it.  Have you got any ideas?

Cut out a circle from card stock or thin cardboard for the base of the hat. Paint the coffee pod and the circle black.  I always paint on wax paper then no paint gets on your work surface.  Sometimes more than one coat of paint is needed to cover over the plastic.

Make use of the hole in the pod to thread some ribbon through so you have something to hang the hat with.  Be sure to add the ribbon before you glue on the base of the hat.

Using E600 glue I ran a bead of glue around the edge of the pod and gently pressed it onto the black base.

Now it is time to decorate your snowman hat with a bit of ribbon and decoration of your choice.  I used three leaves of plastic holly and three red beads.

Once dry your little snowman hat is ready to hang.  This would be fun craft for Brownies, Guides, grandkids and for the crafter to make for those Christmas craft sales.  It is just about 5 cm tall.

A few years ago I made a large snowman hat out of a big tin, some ribbon and some decorations.  It was a fun centrepiece. Be sure to click the link to see how I made it.

The list is endless as to what you can make with these little k-cups – snowmen, bells, reindeer, hats of all sorts (leprechaun, top, graduation), little baskets, critters, wreath, little seed started cups, little storage containers, candles, card holder, mini pin cushion, circle stamps, Advent calendar and so much more.

I’d love to hear about some things you have made with coffee pod containers.
