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 am in a habit of saving pistachio shells for using those in random crafts & things. You may remember my vase which I decorated with pistachio shells. 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,
This is a coaster I made, But can be used as a paper weight or table decoration piece. It’s making is very simple and fun!
You will need to have these craft supplies :
Lid of any jar
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.
