Recycle Your Avocado Shells into Art
Avocados are a wonderful fruit and their use doesn't just end once you eat them ~ you can use the skins for crafts and dyes.
To use the avocado skins for crafting it's best to start with a very ripe avocado. Remove the meat (I used mine for avocado cupcakes and an avocado butter cream frosting). It's important to make sure the skins are completely free of any avocado residue but this is easy if their ripe when you start.
The skins were placed in a low temperature oven and baked for approximately 90 minutes. Once cooled, they were painted white and accented with pink and black to make the cute little bunny you see above.
I simply glued the bunny parts to the burlap and I was set to frame him!
