#62, from Laura who blogs at Thimbleful Of Time!  Congrats, Laura!

It’s time for me to make some space on my front door for something new (and you all know I have a no-storage rule for stuff like this since I live in a tiny 834-square-foot-condo), so today I’m giving away my Hanging “Succulent Garden” made from pistachio shells.

Please note that I can only ship to the U.S. and Canada.
One entry per person please.

Giveaway will end at midnight (CST) on Friday, November 2, 2012, and the winner will be announced on this post on Saturday, November 3, 2012.
Winner will be chosen by random.org.

    Totally gorgeous! I remember when you posted the tutorial, I thought I don’t think I have the patience for that! I can’t believe you’re giving it away! You must be verrry generous! :) But if you’re sure, we won’t refuse!

  2. Caroline says

    I love this and would love to find a place for it. Not sure I’m brave enough to try my hand at it yet… I am sooooo uncrafty (is that a word??).

  3. says

    Would love to win this! It is actually pinned on my Pintrest board as a “to do” later down the road, but if you happen to pick my name and I can skip the “to do” part of that project – well, great! Thanks for the opportunity and all the creative ideas!

  4. Jessica says

    I probably shouldn’t be entering since my apartment is less than half the size of yours (400 sq ft), but I’ve loved this piece since you posted it. I think I could wrangle some wall space if I win. ;)

    Thanks so much for offering the giveaway!

  5. amber barbeau says

    My front door needs a lil love like this! It’s beautiful and unexpected on a door and that’s just my style! I adore your style and home improvements, your talent is incredible!

  6. Lisa says

    This is absolutely gorgeous!! It is completely ME and would complement my apartment tremendously!! How awesome it would be to win:)

  7. G. Hacker says

    This is so unique! Since my thumb seems to be pretty brown at times, this kind of “garden” would be perfect for me! What a kind offer to give this away.

  8. Stacy H. says

    OMG, I loved this project since the day you posted it! I have wanted it, but we don’t eat pistachios! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  9. jeanne lemieux says

    I so love this project! I can’t believe you’re giving it away, but I’d definitely give it a good home! :)

  10. Carol Dyer says

    I have been eating pistachios so I can make one of these for my mom… It would be great if I won yours!
    It’s beautiful, no matter who wins it! Thanks for the chance!

    you are so talented, I love all these things you do, and to give away something like this is awesome. I am 84 yrs old. and I just love looking at all your things you do. and wishing I was young again and could make all of these things. but the wreath for the door, it would probably take me a year to make that, so pretty.

  12. Michele M says

    Beautiful! I can’t believe you are giving away with all of the time you put into it. Love it and would be happy to display in my house. :). Thank you. Michele M

  13. Kristie Prachar says

    How awesome is this?! I so wish my brain worked like how some of these creative folks brains work! Mine is so full of useless crap it has turned into something that what I think a bowl of oatmeal looked like!! Have a nice rest of your night!

  14. Gwen says

    I love this and was going to try my hand at making one someday lol. With the luck of the draw I might own one sooner.

  15. Ryane Paige Strange says

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this succulent garden door “wreath”! So fun, funky, and unique, and I’ll be honest, it is something I would love to do, but I just would never take the time to go to that much work. If you give me this wreath, I promise to pass it on to another lucky friend when I redecorate :)

  16. Jessica says

    I just recently found your blog and absolutely LOVE all that you do! So creative and fabulous. I’d love to have this, thanks for sharing with us!

  17. Victoria Chestnut says

    I loved the idea so much I bought some nuts and started ‘crack’n’. I hope I win so I have a set! Thanks for this and so many other inspiring ideas…keep’em coming!

  18. Lisa Gresham says

    I have followed you for a long time and you are so talented!! You inspire me to keep going.
    Thank you for all you do for us!!! Lisa Gresham

  19. Corrine says

    I remember your original post of this craft. I loved it then & I wanted to make one but I font like pistachios (I know I’m weird). I guess I might just have to buy some for this craft & give away the middles, because seeing this again makes me want one!

  20. Michelle says

    I would love to win this since I never have completed my own. I’ve made piles of the flowers out of the shells, but I’ve never bought the dye to stain them.

  21. Del Marie says

    Oh I L-O-V-E this. When you first showed it to us I was in awe. Now the chance to win it. Hoot. Hoot. This is such an amazing price.

  22. Ann Brooks says

    I LOVE this and am so impressed that you even came up with the idea. I have followed your blog since I discovered blogging and look forward to getting yours. Have a great day and even if I don’t win yours I am going to attempt to make one. Wish me luck!

  23. Ayisha J says

    I’d like to win your succulent garden. It will look great in my kitchen. I wanted to make one myself but unfortunately, I don’t eat pistachios.

  24. Susan says

    Boy oh boy I hope my name is drawn… I have the perfect spot for it! I remember when you did your post on this and thinking… “that girl has sure got some talent”. Thanks so much for the opportunity to score an A2D original!

    Mr. Randomizer: Pick me, pick me P U L E E S E!

  25. Kristin says

    Wow! This is beautiful. And it would go perfectly with the colors in my living room. Thanks for sharing, Kristi!

  26. Venus Pascal says

    I love this project! It’s amazingly creative and inspiring. I’d love to be the winner. Thank you for the opportunity and always sharing all your creativity and art with us.

  27. Kathleen Bell says

    I love this! I had not seen this before. I’m the pistachio girl – I keep a bag of them in my desk at all times.

  28. Sue says

    Whoever wins this beautiful hanging will be one lucky ducky! It’s so beautiful and I know it took you hours and hours to make it. Good luck to all of us!

  29. Lori Dobbs says

    What a sweet thing to do, Kristi! Whoever the lucky winner will be, will definitely appreciate the time and work it took to make it, and I know will be really blessed to have it as their own. :)

  30. Suzanne says

    I happened upon your website through pinterest and love…love…love your projects! This one is one of my favorites! I appreciate the time and thought it took to create such an adorable piece. Keep the projects coming!

  31. Rachel M says
