DIY Glitter K-Cup Lights

I am a major coffee fanatic! As a coffee addict, the main reason I had to buy a Keurig® (I bought two of them because I had to have the blue one) was to wake up and make myself a yummy cup of coffee with no effort. The only time I didn’t use my beloved Keurig was when I was craving a specific Starbucks® coffee. However, now I get to make one of my favorite coffee’s at home with the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods! This is literally a dream come true for me and is totally worth celebrating with this DIY Glitter K-Cup® Lights (yes, I really do love coffee that much, especially after a long night with a teething baby).


Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods. are a new and easy way to be able to enjoy your favorite Starbucks® flavor at home. It’s made from milk, has no artificial flavors, and they come in caramel (my favorite) mocha and vanilla. Also, for a limited time, pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha are also available. I couldn’t think of a better time for them to make their debut. The chilly weather is here and with the holidays around the corner, that means more guests to share a cup of Starbucks® Caffè Latte with. The more the merrier!

  1. What a great way to recycle K-Cups! My son in law and daughter use their Keurig every day so they could definitely collect enough K-Cups for this!

  2. This is such a fun way to up-cycle K-cups! I always toss out so many, this would be a great use for some of them!

  3. I love this idea of re-purposing things again. This is awesome and fun DIY project to do. Love it as you can make the glitter be silver or multi.

  4. Oh goodness, these are so cute! What a great way to upcycle k-cups and keep them from landfills, for a little while anyhow. I know my daughter would greatly enjoy a little project like this.
