Puff Container Snowman Craft

Puff Container Snowman Craft

I love making crafts from materials that I have around the house. Because my son loves to eat baby puffs as a treat and snack, I have amassed a nice little collection of empty puff containers. Although I do not use a one-cup coffee maker, I also have a bag of empty K-cups that my husband rescued from the office. For one of our recent winter-themed crafts, my daughter and I made snowmen from the empty puff containers and K-cups.



  1. Wash and dry the baby puffs containers, lids, and K-cups.
  2. Paint the lids and K-cups black. Use more than one coat of paint as needed.
  3. After the paint dries thoroughly, glue the top of the K-cup to the top of the lid.
  4. Tie and glue a ribbon around the puff container.
  5. Decorate the snowman with buttons, beads, pompoms, and other decorating materials.
  6. Place the lid back on the container.
  7. Display the puff container snowman.
