Nutty for Peanuts

You remember the mustache craze, and then the cupcake craze. What’s hot in the crafting world right now? I’m sure you’ve noticed: it’s nuts! We can’t get enough nut crafts. 

Charles M. Shulz would be so happy to see his favorite Peanuts characters made out of…well you know… peanuts! LimeRiot created the whole gang, and painted a lovely backdrop for this fun playset.


Peanuts aren’t only beautiful, they’re useful as well! MissingWillow made some hard-working exfoliating soap out of both hickory nut and peanut shells. You know this soap will give you a good cleaning! It’s perfect to help scrub away that dry winter skin.
What to make the cousin that has everything? Knowing he loves butterflies (and peanuts!), and inspired by something seen on Pinterest, rackycoo (that’s me!) made this little desktop display. Nutterflies are free, you know!
HSG will be stylin’ with this lovely necklace she calls “Pearls & Peanuts”. The silver painted peanut shell looks so rich, especially coupled with the pearls.
Want to join in this nutty craze, but worried about peanut allergies? kaz814 came up with the perfect solution. She’s a teacher and works around children who are allergic, but really wanted to be trendy and fun. Instead of using potentially harmful peanuts, she chose to make this beautiful piece with packing peanuts! So clever, and so beautiful.

You’ll be nuts for this new craft craze. Be a trendsetter; use peanuts (and other nuts!) in your crafts; they’re so versatile! For more nutty ideas, click on the Craftster tag “nut“. And get crafting!
