Pista shell wall hanging

Hi everyone
Today's post is wall hanging made of pista shells. 
We usually throw them, but why throw them when you can turn them into a beautiful piece of art. This way you are also being eco-friendly. One more bonus, you don't have to buy any craft supplies to make this wall hanging. All of us will have paint and glue with us. 
Plus, it is such an easy craft that you can ask your kids to make it in summer holidays. Let their imagination go wild. You can even stick the shells in any design you like, such as peacock.

Use acrylic colors for glossy finish. Also use varnish so that paint doesn't chip off.
Hope you like it.
