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]
