Reusing Old Glass Coffee Pots

We all know that glass coffee pots can quickly become stained and dirty, requiring a deep clean to get them back to looking like new. However, instead of chucking out those old glass coffee pots, there are actually many fantastic ways to reuse them in different ways.

DIY Glass Crafts

Glass coffee pots can be used to create plenty of unique DIY crafts. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Candle Holders: Cut the top off your glass coffee pot and turn it into a beautiful, homemade candle holder. Simply add a few drops of wax and display on a windowsill or mantelpiece.
  • Vases: Cut off the end of your coffee pot and decorate, using paint or sequins, or leave it as is and use for a pot for your favourite flowers.
  • Lanterns: Cut off the top and the bottom of your coffee pot and add a string of battery powered fairy lights. Hang outdoors for beautiful, soft illumination.

Making Other Uses For Your Glass Coffee Pot

  • Upcycle as Planters: Upcycle an old glass coffee pot into a unique indoor planter! Add planting soil and succulents to bring a touch of green to your home.
  • Glass Pitcher: Turn your old coffee pot into a glass pitcher and serve chilled drinks in style.
  • Jewelry Holder: Place a few pebbles, stones or shells inside and hang jewelry from the handle. Perfect for necklaces and bracelets!

Where to Donate Your Old Glass Coffee Pots

If you don’t have the time or the motivation to upcycle your old glass coffee pots, there are plenty of places you can donate them to. Charities, schools and even local craft classes can find a use for your unwanted items. You can also use websites such as Freecycle or Craigslist to give away your old glass coffee pots.
