K-Cup Noise Makers!

I am back with another used K-cup project! I told you I was going to find more ways to use these used K-cups and here is one more! With New Year's Eve happening in my house tomorrow night, with kids, I had to come up with a fun noise maker that wouldn't drive me crazy! So here are my K-cup Noise Makers!

Used K-Cup Noise Makers!

These are really simple to put together, make a great noise (that isn't too loud or annoying) and are easy for the kids to carry around.

supplies for used k-cup noise makers

  • 2 empty K-Cups per noise maker
  • 1 pipe cleaner
  • a few beads
  • paint in your desired colors
  • glue

The assembly is pretty easy!

Insert the pipe cleaner into the pre-made hole in the used k-cup so that about 1/2 an inch is inside and fold it over. Add your beads into the bottom of the k-cup and then, put glue along the rim of the k-cup. Place the other k-cup on top so that they match up and hold them together for a minute or so. After that, set it down, pipe cleaner side up and put a little dab of glue where the pipe cleaner enters the k-cup. Let this dry for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Then, insert the other end of the pipe cleaner into the other hole and secure it with a dab of glue.

Once they are assembled, they need some decoration! Let your little artist go crazy! It is for New Year's, after all!

      You are too nice to me! This really is a simple and fun activity for New Year’s! 😉

  1. What a great idea! We definitely go through enough coffee to make a few of these for New Year’s 🙂

    1. Echo

      Me too, lol. I could make more than I’d like to admit!

  3. Totally fun! My kids love noisemakers. And I’ve done something similar with dixie cups but found them to be a bit flimsy in Des’ strong hands.
    I like this idea better.

  4. Fi Ní Neachtáin

    This is a lovely little craft to do with the little ones. I know my boy would love making noise with these!

    This is an awesome idea for noise makers to bring in the New Year. It is a great project for the kids and great way to recycle also. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Happy New Year to you and your family! Looks like you have found a way to create some awesome noisemakers for the kids- will they last until 12? I don’t think I even will this year!

    1. Echo

      My kids totally made it! I was surprised and not, at the same time!

  7. This is a great idea for an indoor noisemaker. The kids have a great time and you reuse those k-cups!

  8. Robin (Massrhole Mommy)

    That is a brilliant idea and way to upcycle! My boys would absolutely LOVE these! I better go have some coffee so I can make some for them.

    1. Echo

      That’s the best part! It starts with a couple cups of coffee, lol!

  9. This is such a great idea and puts those k cups to good use! I definitely plan on trying this. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Echo

      I hope you have fun with it! I loved doing it with my kids!

    1. Echo

      It was so much fun to do and I love being able to use some of those old k-cups!

  10. What a fun idea! My kids would love this. I just need go get my hands on some k cups. This can be a fun crafts for us to do before back to school!

  11. Heather

    I love these! I know I use a lot of k-cups and its such an easy project to do with the kids in anticipation for New Year’s.

  12. Genius! Seriously. We used to run up and down the street banging pots and pans as a kid. I was planning on letting the kids do this in the front yard if they miraculously managed to stay up til midnight tonight. My neighbors would kill us though so now I think I might find a way to make their own noisemakers. Thank you so much for the idea!

    1. Echo

      Pots and pans are amazing noise makers too! These are a little quieter!

  14. The cup noise maker would be a great way to squeeze a kids creative juices. They’ll surely have fun designing it as well.

  15. This is absolutely fantastic but i can better you after 2 weeks non-stop of this with my insomnia i would be ready to declare it noisy lol. Thanks for this neat DIY

    1. Echo

      These aren’t that loud, but two weeks would be crazy!

  16. Michelle Hwee
