K-Cup Craft Idea: Leprechaun Loot

You've heard that if you are able to catch a leprechaun on St. Patrick's Day, that you get to keep his pot of gold, haven't you? Well, leprechauns are extremely hard to catch, even with the best leprechaun traps! However, that doesn't mean he won't leave a little of his loot behind!

Making this K-cup craft

Supplies you'll need to make this k-cup craft for St. Patrick's Day.

Supplies:

  • K-Cups (you could also use Dixie Cups)
  • Black Chalkboard Paint
  • Non-Toxic Clear Glue
  • Gold Glitter
  • Green Pipe Cleaners
  • Push Pin
  • Golden Candy and Coins (Rolos, Hershey's Gold etc.)

Assembling this K-Cup Craft:

You'll want to start by painting your cups with the chalkboard paint and allowing them to dry. After that, you will want to set up two bowls, one with glue and one with glitter.

Next, dip the rim of each cup into the glue and then, press it into the gold glitter. Allow them to dry completely.

Once they are dry, you can make them even more festive by adding some lucky clover stickers!

Adding the handle is as easy as poking two holes, one in each side of the k-cup and then, inserting and securing the pipe cleaner.
