Mini K-Cup Bushel Basket

By:

Recycle K-cups the crafty way! You can make these mini k-cup bushel baskets to put on your knick-knack shelf and add some whimsy to your kitchen. This craft from Crystal Donnelly is a great way to use up those mounting k-cups.

Materials:

  • An empty K-cup
  • A Paper bag (thinner lunch size work best)
  • A compass
  • Scissors, ruler, pencil
  • Tacky craft glue
  • Small amount of pinto beans
  • Black marker
  • Two unused staples

Instructions:

  1. Remove the filter and wash and dry the used K-cup.
     
  2. Cut open a brown paper bag and smooth it flat. Using the compass draw a 3-inch diameter circle and cut out.

  3. Set the K-cup in the center of the circle and mark around with a pencil. (I used a marker so you can see it better) Use this circle as a guide and cut slits all around just up to the line. Spread some tacky glue in the middle of the paper circle where you marked it and attach the K-cup.

  4. Spread some tacky glue on the K-cup and press on each of the slits, working around the K-cup. Turning under at the top. Make sure you liberally spread the glue on the K-cup and on the edge of the previous slit. (See photo) When you have finished covering the entire K-cup, let dry.

  5. Cut two strips of brown paper ¾” x 7.” Fold in half and then fold each edge to the center. Fold in half again. Glue on one strip around ½” from the top edge. Trim any excess. Repeat with the other strip around the bottom edge of the basket.

  6. Scrunch up some leftover paper bag and stuff the basket up to ½” from the top. Glue a staple to each side of the basket. Cut a circle the diameter of the top of the basket and glue on top of the paper stuffing, letting the staples poke out of the sides. Let dry.

  7. Spread some glue on top of the paper circle and attach some pinto beans. Keep gluing one bean at a time until the basket appears full. Print “taters” with a permanent maker if desired.
