Crafts to Make With Pistachio Shells

Who doesn't love a cheap craft? Throw in reclaimed materials and the requirement that you must first eat lots of delicious pistachio nuts, how can you go wrong?  Here is a round up of some fun DIY projects using pistachio shells.

With Earth Day coming up, I know many of you are thinking about green craft projects!

(This project is being linked to the Blogging A to Z Challenge. P is for Pistachio. See the link in my sidebar.)

Handimania has a tutorial for making artichokes from pistachio shells!

Several pistachio craft tutorials can be found on YouTube, including this chrysanthemum.

You would never guess this glamorous bib necklace was crafted from pistachio shells!

How about making a dozen or so roses?

You can even create a decorative bowl using dyed pistachio shells and resin!

Or create an ombre necklace with shells and paint.

At All Things Crafty, they used leftover Easter Egg Dye to dye pistachio shells to make gorgeous hair jewelry!

This giant zinnia was made using an old CD. This would be a great project for the kids for Mother's day!
