Pistachio Diorama Jar

There’s not a better gift than a jar of pistachios! Try Spiced Pistachios. To make it even more special, build dioramas atop the jars. Magical little worlds for a magical holiday treat! You will need: jars, the bigger the better; pistachios, in the shell or out—or spiced; hot glue, felt, model trees, plastic animals, flakey sea salt. Get creative with your dioramas. There are no rules! Glue a base of felt to your filled jar. Next, glue on a couple trees and a plastic animal and other habitat-like decorations. Create snow with a sprinkle of flakey salt. A cluster of these jars makes a delightful centerpiece for a holiday table.
