HOW TO MAKE PISTACHIO SHELL PEACOCK
I’ve done a Pistachio shell Peacock. But there is a twist. Yes, the twist is that I’ve used the Pistachio shell only to make Peacock feathers. The rest part is made from paper. And you know what, you don’t have to struggle to buy the materials required to make this art. You can use things from waste/used materials also.
The frame which I’ve used is made from chocolate box which I had got on Diwali festive. For making paper flowers,you can use old calender papers.
You can make this art for school exhibition or can decorate your room.
To know more, just follow the steps and make your own art.
