K-cup Fez Hat Treat Holder Tutorial

ACraftyArabKcupFezHatTitle-1When we were on vacation, I noticed our rental home had a Keurig coffee machine. This new gadget comes with little white cups full of flavoring of coffee or tea that you add to the machine to make a drink.

After using one of the tea cups, I noticed that the top of the cup had a hole in it.

A little light bulb went off in my head and I came up with this cute Fez* hat to hold a treat for an Eid* party. When we got home, I asked my local Buy Nothing community to save me their extras since we don’t have a coffee machine.

If you have a machine, what better way to recycle these cups instead of throwing them away!?!

(A Fez hat is a felt headdress that is in the shape of a truncated cone. Eid is the Arabic word for festival or holiday. This post contains affiliate links)

While that is drying, make your tassel.

Start by winding the embroidery thread around the popsicle stick a few times and cut it off.

Gently take off the small circle you just made and tie one end. Put your scissors on the opposite end of where you just tied and cut the circle in half.

Take another string and tie a knot at the top, right under your tied thread, to keep your tassel going downward. Cut off extra thread.

Your tassel is done.

Place the tassle in the Kcup and add a dot of glue on the inside to hold it into place.

Add a piece of candy inside. Because this is a used cup and there is glue at the top holding the
tassel, I would only recommend putting in previously wrapped candy only.

Glue your cardstock cover to hold the candy. I used a circle design that says Eid Mubarak (Blessed Eid in Arabic) I had already made for my Eid money envelopes. To make this, I simply stamped my design on paper and cut it out with a hole punch. You can also just cut out a regular small circle out of cardstock that is the size of your K-cup.

Your Fez treat hat is ready to give out to kids. They can simply break the seal to get to the candy.

You can also try wearing it on your head but it’s most likely too small. Instead, you can make this Egyptian Fez Party Hat that might be a better fit.
