Yes I will make a quick coffee with tealights craft.
Because who doesn’t love the smell of coffee permeating the house?
There must be at least 10 boxes of tea in there. I’m glad that he is a tea drinker. But what you don’t see is the number of bags of coffee that were in there before I tidied up (I wasn’t going to show you that picture, I care too much about all of you). There must have been at least 6 bags full of ground coffee. They were from Fairway and I am in the process of enjoying all their delightful flavors, but there was also one bag that had a surprise. Yes it had coffee beans.
My son no longer drinks coffee and I already had plenty of bags to consume while visiting. After all I don’t want to end up with frazzled nerves. My son’s friend, who was visiting, persuaded me to repurpose the beans, it would have been a shame to just throw them out.
My friend Debbie of Debbie Doo’s had made a cute burlap art work with coffee beans. This was adorable, unfortunately it was above my skill set! And so I went looking around the house and this is what I found:
This is a Droppar container from Ikea. It comes with a lid but what I like about it is the band of frosted glass it has in the middle.
I think this was a much better way to repurpose those coffee beans.
The house smells like coffee!

I am so happy with how this quick Coffee with Tealights project turned out. Would you ever try something like this or have you in the past?
