Winter is here & dry fruits-nuts are in full swing! What’s yours favorite by the way? I love pistachios more than any other nuts or dry fruit.

I gifted one pistachio vase decorated with collage clay to a friend recently. Today I will be sharing another idea which I have done with pistachio shells & collage clay! I hope you will like to see how to make Pistachio Shell Art and Craft. Have a look here,

First of all, Fill the lid of any jar with collage clay. Spread it with any stick. I used ice cream stick.

Start fixing pistachio shells from the middle & fix it.

Complete the circle by fixing these one by one.

Add some glitter & pearl beads.

Let it dry overnight.

Here is the other side :) Some bubbles are here but you can cover this with any sticker. I let it as it is. It’s not looking bad I guess.

It’s done. And seriously it looks too good at my blue table surface. As I am already having a paper weight for my table, So this one is not in my use. I might be giving away this decoration piece item.

You can also enjoy my other craft tutorials made out of Collage Clay. Find some Pistachio Shells Craft Tutorials.

I hope you enjoyed my today’s fun idea. It’s very easy craft & looks cute. I am sure if you will be trying this, You will love it. If you don’t have collage clay, You can also try this with homemade dough/clay. Simply fill the space with a layer of dough/clay & fix pistachios on it. Find tutorial of my homemade clay/dough HERE.

    That is really creative. I love crafts that rely on materials that would otherwise be thrown away. It would be a really cute table decoration.
