Magic little worlds for a magical holiday treat!

Subscribe to Sweet Paul


Edible gifts are always a treat. Put the special people on your list in the holiday spirit. Dress up a delicious jar of pistachios by building playful, scene-setting dioramas on top. It’s all about giving gifts made with love and sharing special times with friends and family. Make the most of both with pistachios!

Watch my how-to video:

You will need:

jars, the bigger the better - I love Weck jars

pistachios, in the shell or out

hot glue


model trees

plastic animals

flakey sea salt

  1. Get creative with your dioramas, there are no rules! First I glue a base of felt to my filled jar.
  2. Next I glue on a couple trees and a plastic animal.
  3. A sprinkle of flakey salt acts as the snow!


A cluster of these jars would make a wonderful centerpiece for a holiday table.
