The next time you make a pot of coffee, don’t toss the coffee grounds. Use your old coffee grounds to make one of these simple DIY projects instead!

I recently ditched my single serve coffee machine for an old school percolator.  No regrets!  It might take a little longer to make my coffee in the morning now, but I’ve reduced my plastic use, have more control over my portion size, and it’s way more cost efficient!  The only thing is, I’m left with a lot of coffee grounds.  I’ve been tossing my old coffee grounds into the garden to fertilize the soil.  But I’m constantly looking for new ways to reuse common items that normally go to waste.

If you don’t have a garden, you can use coffee grounds to perk up your beauty routine or make your house smell amazing!  Perk up your skincare routine with a coffee scrub.  Love the smell of coffee brewing?  Use your old coffee grounds in a candle.  These 21 DIY projects will give those old coffee grounds new life.  So the next time you make a pot of coffee, don’t toss the coffee grounds.  Whip up one of these easy DIY projects instead!
