K-Cup toothpick holder




Are you ready for crafting with a K?  K- cup crafts that is. This one is super easy and very quick to make.  It is a perfect project for kids.  I always keep some toothpicks in my kitchen for testing cakes and baked goods, don't you?

You will need:

Notched Popsicle sticks (Sometimes called skill sticks)

Black used K-Cup, washed and filter removed (Black gives a nice look peeking through the openings)

Kitchen shears or heavy-duty scissors

Tacky craft glue (I used Aleene’s Turbo Tacky glue)

Wooden circle to fit around bottom

Scraps of tiny lace trim

1.     Use the kitchen shears to cut 12 pieces of notched Popsicle sticks.  Cut each end at the first notch.  You will get two pieces from each stick. (One from each end)


2.     Draw a bead of glue down the side of the K-cup and attach one of the pieces of Popsicle stick. Continue adding glue and sticks around the K-cup until you have covered the entire K-cup.  Adjust the sticks if necessary and let dry.



3.     Add some tacky glue onto the bottom of the K-cup.  Center and attach the round wooden shape for the base.  Let dry.


4.     Cut a length of tiny lace to fit around the top rim of the K-cup.  Run a bead of glue around the edge and add the lace.  Cut an additional length of tiny lace to fit around the bottom edge and attach with glue.
