Another very easy project but you must plan for it! You have to eat a bag or two of pistachio nuts. Save the shells and wash in warm water let dry for a day or two. Meanwhile find a cardboard box that is around 20 inches squared. Take an empty tissue box and take it apart. lay it out only leave off the bottom (so you can put in a new box ) and the seem side make a whole side like the opposite. It is important to make it a hair larger than the tissue box so a tissue box will fit into it. Make sure to trace the opening at the top too. I used a heavy brown cardboard box so I only scored the outline into it then folded it and hot glued it. I painted the whole outside black. After the shells were dry I painted them gold then glued them to the black box and in the end put a coat of modge podge. I really love how it turned out and again it was free!
