Does your family love coffee? If so, then especially during the holidays when everyone comes to visit, you’ll end up with dozens of K-Cups so why not turn them into Quinceanera favors?! It doesn’t matter if your Quince is coming up in just a couple of weeks, or if you want to work ahead for next year. Make the most of family time by getting all those relatives who’ve come to visit to help you make one of these incredibly creative K-cup crafts. You can even let your younger relatives help with at least one of these!
1. K-Cup Bath Bombs
What could be more perfect as a giveaway than a mini-spa in the form of a delightful bath bomb? This is a wonderful giveaway for everyone because you can use different essential oils. Lavender, orange or peppermint is recommended, but why not try a batch for the guys using bergamot or sandalwood? (If they don’t want to take a bath, they can let it bubble up on the shower floor!)
All it takes is K-Cups and a few household ingredients like baking soda, corn starch, Epsom salts, and a couple of other things. For the ladies, add some dried flower petals or colored sugar sprinkles if you wish.

2. Jeweled Air Plant Planters
These take a little more work but aren’t they gorgeous?! You can also use fake air plants if you want but the real thing is just too pretty!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Empty K-cups
- Mini Air Plants
- Spray Paint
- Spanish Moss
- Fishing line or clear beading thread
- Straight Pins
- Beads or prisms

3. Miniature Succulent Pots
This is one project your youngest relatives can help you with since it doesn’t involve anything sharp. You can set up these little pots ahead of time and store them—everything but the dirt, that is—then get your little succulents a week or two before your Quince.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Twine or string
- Brown paper or interesting packing paper
- Dirt or succulent planting soil
- Succulents (each cup gets just a trimming)
Note: You can also use faux succulents and Spanish moss if you want to make complete pots a few months ahead.
Bonus #1: Cool & Quick Centerpiece
Group your little plant cups on a beautiful mirror or tray for a centerpiece—one plant for each guest—then have your guests take the plants home on their way out at the end of the reception.
Bonus #2: Faux Succulent Pens
If you used fake succulents, take the extras and make pens. All you need are straight ink pens, a little glue and florist tape. Then you can put the pens in a flower pot by your guest book!
Here’s a tutorial for the flower pot pens: http://www.ehow.com/how_12340491_make-faux-succulent-pen-planter.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=inline&utm_campaign=fanpage&crlt.pid=camp.Vpz5EycoSfLJ&crlt.pid=camp.VqSovEH0W0Qw
