Make a refreshing summer drink using the coconut shell as a cup! Kickstart the small talk at any gathering with these drink holders. The main ingredients to make your own Tumeric Gin & Ginger Cocktail are:
Coconut bowls make fantastic plant pots and bring a little bit of the outdoors into your home.
Using a drill, carefully bore a drainage hole in the centre of the base of the shell. Cactus and succulents are really easy plants to look after, once you have chosen your plant from a garden centre, fill the shell with potting mix. To up the ante you could also drill holes in the side of the shell to attach string or macrame and make hanging planters!
Coconut Jewellery Storage
As an addition to your main jewellery box, coconut shells make great storage for your day to day staples. Perfect to put by your bedside so you can easily find your earnings in the morning.
The natural shell also adds to the feng shui of your bedroom. An ancient Chinese derived system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement of objects and promote well being in ones home.
