Decorative Ball- Shell

Christmas ornament and Pistachio nuts
I was in a big box store recently and window shopped in the home decorating section and came across some decorative balls. One of them caught my eye and then the idea popped in my head for me to try to make a decorative ball. This was my second attempt, the first ball was made of moss and this one...oh it's just nuts.

Spray painted with glossy paint
