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,

Collage clay

Lid of any jar


pistachio shells crafts ideas and tutorial

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.

Have you ever tried any pistachio shell craft? Or any other fruit or nut craft? I would love to see your work as well. Feel free to share your work with me via Facebook or any other social media network. Stay connected ~

Have a great day!
