This Reindeer K-Cup Christmas Decor Idea is one of those amazing things only a real crafter like my friend Jill would come up with. Ask my family. They will tell you right away that crafts or artistic endeavors are just not my thing. I love them. I love attempting to make them. I never succeed. So, when I see one of my good friends sharing her idea like this – I beg to use it on my site. She happily agreed, and the rest is history!
Reindeer K-Cup Christmas Decor Idea
If you drink a lot of coffee and happen to use a single-serve coffee pot like a Keurig, you likely have thrown away a lot of empty K-Cups. This Reindeer K-Cup Christmas Decor Idea is a simple and easy way to upcycle some of those cups for a cute decoration for your mantle or table centerpiece this holiday season.
Brown Acrylic Paint or Brown Spray Paint
Brown or Black Pipe Cleaners
Paint your reindeer (K-Cups) brown and let air dry for several hours. If you are using a spray paint, you will want to do this in a well-ventilated area (preferably outside) with a mask to protect your lungs.
Using a glue stick, give each reindeer a red nose and 2 eyes. See photo below for an idea of placement. Use scissors to cut the pipe cleaners to length for antlers. These are cut to 1 1/2″ -2″ in length and work great. You can then cut a 1/2″ section and wrap it around 2 of the longer pipe cleaners to make antlers.
To place the antlers into the K-Cup, you can use hot glue, or a knife/pair of scissors to cut a small hole in the side of the K-cup to stick the antlers into.
As you can see, this Reindeer K-Cup Christmas decor idea is super fun, cute and easy to create. I love sharing inexpensive and easy crafts because I feel like they are something you can realistically make at home without a bunch of supplies. Let’s face it, during the rush of the holidays – nobody wants to spend extra money on supplies.
