K-Cups are expensive on a college student budget, so every time I throw them out, I think how I could potentially reuse them to make something else. That's when I thought of Earth Day. The plastic cups are a perfect pot for cute little succulents! 

These DIY succulent pots are so fun to do because you can decorate the K-Cups to suit your style. Plus they are easy to make that you can make them as a gift or keep them for yourself to wake up your room.
