July 4th Flower Favors-To-Go + An Announcement!

Recycle coffee containers to July 4th Flower Favors-To-Go! From littlemisscelebration.com for A Little ClaireificationWhat to do when you drink a lot of instant French Vanilla coffee and save all the empty containers? Well, recycle them into something festive, fun and cute! We’re waving a little patriotic wand and instead of creating trash, we’re transforming coffee containers into darling flower pots. Having a July 4th party? Use these as decorations and at the end of the day, guests can grab a ribbon handle and have flower favors-to-go!

Now…the announcement! I’m all bubbly with happiness to share that I am the new monthly crafts contributor at A Little Claireification! I know it’s going to be over-the-top fun to hang out every month with my great friend and Best of the Weekend co-host, Claire. I’ll be at A Little Claireification on the 4th Wednesday of every month – and well, that’s today! Pop on over right here to get the how-to on these little cuties – and please tell Claire hello from me! Oh, and there’s a funny story about why I was inspired to make this project for my first day at Claire’s!

See you over at A Little Claireification!

    Are those coffee tins really tin or cardboard inside? If they’re tin would be so perfect for little planters. They are so cute so even if they’re cardboard inside they’re still great to hold favors. Love how you decorated them. Going over to see what you used to decorate the coffee containers.
    Congrats on your new assignment, you’re the best girl. Will enjoy seeing what you do every month, can hardly wait. Happy summer days to you and yours.

    • Hi JaneEllen – they actually are plastic on the inside and have worked out great as little planters. You’re right, they would also make perfect little favor holders or little gift boxes. Thank you so much for your kind words and visit – I always appreciate it so much! Have a happy Saturday and wonderful summer weekend!
