Any coffee drinker with a single-cup coffee maker has wondered what to do with the leftover k-cups. This DIY K-Cup Planter is the perfect way to use up those cups, upcycling them into plant starters. Starting out your plants in smaller pots or planters can help them sprout before you move them into larger pots for their future growth. You can reuse every part of the k-cup, from the coffee grounds and the filter. Supplement with your favorite seeds and you're ready to get growing!
