Pistachio shell crafts and plastic egg carton flowers

We've been working on a pistachio shell craft for quite long now. We made a flower pot, a heart and a cute card with pistachio shells. Pistachio shells make such a versatile crafty material. We can do so many things with these shells. Hopefully, we will come back with more ideas later, IA. Have a look at what we did recently.

All we used: Pistachio shells, fevicol glue, acrylic paints, a spare bottle, a cardboard box and one plastic egg carton. 

1. Pistachio Shell Heart - wall hanging 





 2. A homemade card
 3. A flower pot and plastic egg carton flowers
 

 All these are painted and most of the shells are glued by my little girl. She chose the colors as well. 



What amazing thing you did with your little one?

  8. Loving Life with Little ones says..... That is an awesome idea, Daddy eats pistachios and the shells go in the bin, I think we might have to save some to use. Love the heart. x
