That’s why in today’s article, we’ve put together homemade DIY ideas with coffee capsules: from a mini garden to a wall clock. We hope you like them!

1.A Brooch

2.A Garland of Lights!

What do you think of a garland made of coffee capsules? It can be made in a very simple way. You can place them to decorate the room or around a large mirror. It won’t take you long to make this craft!


Earrings are another cool craft that can be made with coffee pods. Depending on the design you prefer, you can use the whole pod or just the smooth part. They look great!

4.A Wall Clock

This idea is very original and super useful. Depending on how big you want your watch to be, you will need more or less caps. A trick we suggest, if you want them in different colors, is to take balloons, cut them out and cover the outside of the capsule with the large part. Sounds amazing and easy isn’t it?

5.A Bowl for Your Coffee Table

You don’t have to go crazy to find a pretty bowl for your home! In coffee tables, and even in a side cabinet, you can place one made by yourself. All you need are coffee capsules!

7.A Frame for the Mirror

Renew your old mirror with coffee capsules! You can design your own frame in a very simple way using more neutral colors, if you want it to be discreet. Or more metallic, if you prefer the frame to be more striking.

8.A Decorative Panel

The great thing about decorative panels is that you can customize the design however you want and size it to best suit the area you’re going to place it. Make a sketch on a wooden board! Then glue the crushed caps until all the holes are filled. And there you have it, ready to go!

9.Shade for Coffee Capsule Lamps

The coffee capsule lamp shade is a very useful decorative option. It could be a great gift for someone who loves DIY decorating!

10.Decorate a Box with the Capsules!

Sometimes the boxes that come with products can be useful for storing things we want to have on hand. However, sometimes they have the brand on the outside. So you can cover it with coffee capsules.

11.Figurines with Coffee Capsules

Craft items don’t have to have a specific purpose. Sometimes they can just be a hobby. So we suggest you have fun creating little dolls. Also, because of their small size, you can use them as beads for pendants.

12.Decorative Mini Garden

Another idea to decorate small rooms in the house are the mini gardens. The process of making this craft is very easy. The capsule will have the function of a flowerpot, inside you can introduce a small coffee and a small artificial plant. But you can also use them to germinate small seeds. It’s up to you!
