K-Cup Flower Pin Cushion

By: Crystal Donnely for Make it Easy Crafts

Want to know how to recycle K-Cups into cute crafts? Check out this idea from Crystal Donnelly and make a K-Cup flower pin cushion. What a cute way to recycle K-Cups and store your pins.

K-Cup Flower Pin Cushion


  • Empty K-cup with filter removed and cleaned
  • Tacky Craft glue
  • Scraps of brown and yellow felt
  • Polyfil fiber stuffing
  • Terra cotta primer spray paint (or you may use acrylic paint in terra cotta)
  • Four pennies
  • Needle and thread
  • Compass, pencil, scissors, ruler


  1. Spray paint the K-cup with the terra cotta primer. Make sure you spray in a well-ventilated area and let dry.

  2. Place the K-cup on a piece of felt and trace around the bottom. Cut out. Add some tacky glue on the bottom of the K-cup and attach the felt circle.

  3. Squirt a bit of tacky glue in the inside of the K-cup and drop in the four pennies. See, I told you it would only cost you pennies! (This will weigh down the pincushion.)

  4. Measure and cut out six 1-inch by 1-inch squares from the yellow felt. Put a drop of glue on the corner of one square and pinch together. (Petal made) Add some glue to the inside edge of the K-Cup and attach the pinched edge leaving the other edge hanging over. (See photo) Put some more glue on the rim and press the petal down. Repeat for the five other felt squares. There will be six petals.

  5. Using the compass cut a 3-inch diameter circle from the brown felt. Thread a needle with some heavy thread (embroidery floss works great) and gather around the circle. Add a bit of polyfil fiber stuffing to the center and pull the thread tight. Secure with a knot.

  6. Spread some glue on the interior sides and bottom of the K-cup. Squeeze the polyfil stuffed circle with your hand to compress and push it down inside the K-cup. Let the glue dry.

These make for very very cute small gifts. I do like a good recycling project and craft. Especially one that puts every day items that usually end up in the recycling bin, to better use. Now, if someone could suggest what I can make with all those coffee pods we use in our house. They are not the same as those K-cups, and I am stumped. Anyone??
