Pistachio shell Vase Tutorial (Recycling)


Pistachio shell Vase Tutorial (Recycling)

I enjoy making creative stuff with ordinary things..a few days back I make this flower pot/paintbrush holder/vase or anything else you can say..the most ordinary thing I have used here is Pistachio shells ;) I love eating salted fried pistachios a lot & I am in a habit of keeping their shells in a crafty packet,so I can make several things ! its a first try :)lets see my today’s fun creation..

~ Process ~
I paste these shells with any transparent glue(you can use mod podge)I am using movileth German glue because after making 30 cool creations now my mod podge is about to end..
You can make any thick & big shape,I make a thin design because I want to have its dark red color!
Leave it until dry!

  I use plaid folkart acrylic paints for painting these pistachios in two colors,(vanilla & strawberry..yummy)
When the paint get dry,I paste some pearl beads on it..
I make a few rough strokes of flat brush too!
At the end I apply mod podge sparkle on it & its done!

    Now that is very creative! I never would have thought to reuse pistachio shells and my hubby eats them all the time! LOL, he already calls me a hoarder, if I started saving his shells he would think I was “nuts”! Love what you’ve done with the can. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Nan

    Creo que te quedaría bien con una flores en papel y te quedaría el detalle perfecto.
