Christmas decorations with Nespresso pods

Make these cute Christmas decorations from used Nepresso pods.

This is a great project to keep the kids occupied! Make sure you help them with the hot glue gun so little fingers don’t get burnt.

You will need:

  • Nespresso pods (foil removed and cleaned)
  • hot glue gun
  • string
  • wooden beads in various sizes
  • marker ribbon cotton wool stick

Make a snowman

Thread a piece of string through two large beads, a medium-sized one and then through a Nespresso pod. Tie a knot at the bottom of the last large bead. Glue the pod at an angle onto the medium-sized bead so that it sits like a hat. Draw a face and buttons. Tie a piece of ribbon around the beads like a scarf.

Make a Father Christmas

Thread string through a large bead and a Nespresso pod. Tie a knot at the bottom. Glue the pod at an angle onto the medium-sized bead so that it sits like a hat. Cut off a piece of cotton wool to form a beard and glue it on with the hot glue gun. Draw eyes with the marker.

Make bells

Thread two pieces of string through a Nespresso pod and attach small beads to the ends of the string so that the beads just peek out from the bottom of the pod.

Attach all the decorations to a stick and hang them up, or hang them on your Christmas tree.
