Incense Holder With Pistachio Shells


Burning incense is very relaxing and my favorite are the “Padmini Dhoop sticks”.

Incense sticks are a part of the Indian heritage and are associated with spirituality. That’s the reason most of the Indian Hindu household has it burning in the prayer room.

All these days I have been burning them in the small metal eyelet that is designed to hold the stick on the Padmini dhoop sticks box.

But now I have this cutest custom incense stick holder and it is the easiest and most practical thing to do out of waste 🙂. This is really a fun idea, you can try at your home.

Yep these are pistachio shells upcycled to make a pretty floral incense burner  <3.

Craft materials needed to make DIY Incense holder

Pista shells

Glue gun

Cardboard for base

Air dry clay 

Spray paint 

How to make Incense holder from Pista shells

Step 1 : Take a sturdy cardboard as a base. Here i used the base of empty salt carton.

 

Step 2: Start from the outer layer. Glue the shells upside down to the cardboard circle

Step 3: Glue the second layer. Use a dab of hot glue to the pista shell and stick it on to the cardboard like shown below

 

Step 4: Continue to glue towards the center.

Step 5: Fill the center with a piece of air dry clay and create a hole with the incense stick.

 

Step 6: Leave the clay to dry for couple of hours and use spray paint of your choice and you have the incense holder ready to use 🙂

Hope you save some shells next time and enjoy making this project 🙂

Hi there, I am very delighted that you stopped by! I am Nima (Purnima) and live in The Grand Canyon State ( Arizona, US). It all started after I moved to the United States. I learnt about "Do-It -Yourself" concept from couple of TV shows and blogs. Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;). That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) It's been 3+ years and going great!!
