Pilgrim Hat Treat Cup
These upcycled k cups are adorable whether you plan to pass them out for a class treat or to add to the kids table on Thanksgiving. Anytime you can spin out a free and fun craft for the kids its a good thing, right?
For this treat cup I used empty cups from one of the varieties of coffee that was already black, if yours are white you can easily give them a couple coats of black spray paint to make it work as well. This project works great in an assembly line fashion with your little ones, just be sure to use a good craft glue instead of hot glue.
- clean, empty black k cups
- (or spray painted white or brown)
- black cardstock
- white cardstock
- yellow cardstock
- Craft or hot glue
- small individual wrapped candy for filling
You will also need a cup or other round object with a slightly larger circumference than the wide end of your k cup, at least ½” wider around.
Remove all the foil top from your k cup, if needed a small pair of pliars can help you pull off the stubborn bits.
Wash and dry cup completely.
Trace a cup or other round object that is slightly larger than the open end of k cup onto black cardstock, cut circle out.
Cut a white strip of white cardstock ⅛” wide and “ long.
Cut a yellow square ¼” x ¼ “.
Assemble band and buckle using glue to secure.
Fill cup with candies to just below rim.
Flip cup over and your adorable pilgrim hat is ready to enjoy!
