Upcycled Eight O’Clock Coffee Bag into Planter!

What to do with a empty coffee bag? Make a hanging planter!

Today’s post is from a little project I put together back in 2012. It was very simple to do and fast forward 5 years and it’s still going strong. The plants have changed and the outside is a little faded, but the coffee bag planter is still together. All it takes is a little twine for the hanger, some drainage holes in the bottom and a small hole cut in the side for planting. Get creative and see what you can come up with!

Upcycle – Paper Plate Holder Covers

I’ve run out of paper plates many times and in a pinch have used paper towels instead. Only for sandwiches and dry snacks. A easy solution was to cover the plates holders with new $1 shower caps from Dollar Tree! I wouldn’t recommend using this method with hot foods but it works great with snacks and sandwiches! When dirty just toss them into the washer with your cold wash items and line dry.
