With a keen artistic eye, just about anything can be turned into something beautiful.  And Kristi from Addicted 2 Decorating has just that kind of vision!  Need proof?  Check out this fabulous piece of artwork.  These are not real succulents - they are actually made out of pistachio shells!  Seriously.  Amazing, right?  The finished product is totally worth the funny looks you'll get from friends and family when you start collecting a box full of empty nut shells.  (But then again, if you craft like we do, they might not think your request is so strange!)  [how to make a faux succulent garden]

Project estimate:

  • Pistachio shells, on hand
  • Fabric dye, on hand or $1 and up
  • Spanish moss, $1
  • Frame, on hand or $1 and up
  • Glue, on hand

Total:  $1 and up

    Looks great! Love the colors you’ve chosen. I’ll try this but will put faux succulents on a wreath for the fall season, thanks for sharing.
