In my ongoing quest to re-use my obscene number of used K-Cups, I have come up with another cute K-Cup craft! You probably remember my K-Cup Jingle Bells and my K-Cup Noise Makers. Well now, I’ve made some K-Cup Candy Critters!
These cute little critters are a perfect Valentine treat and they are super easy to make!
- An empty K-Cup (cleaned and dried)
- 1 piece of construction paper
- 1 pipe cleaner
- 2 poms
- 2 googly eyes
- 1 festive foam sticker
- Candy for filling (I used Sweethearts)
- Scissors and glue
The first thing you do is cut a heart out of the construction paper. You’ll want to make sure that your heart will completely cover the top of your empty k-cup. Next, fill the k-cup with candy and line the rim with glue. Gently place the heart on the k-cup and then let it dry completely before flipping it over and continuing.
Once the eyes have dried, you’ll want to bend and add your antennae! I simply bent the pipe cleaner in half, formed the ends in to hearts and then stuck it into the premade hole in the k-cup. No need for glue, it will fit right in.
A perfect little K-Cup craft that ends with an adorable Valentine filled with treats! On Valentine’s Day, let your Valentine pull off the heart and enjoy the candy inside of these K-Cup Candy Critters!
