Turning coconut shells into “art” is easy and requires only simple processing, turning waste into treasure.

I have come up with 7 ideas for you to consider.

Rice bowls.

The most common option is to make coconut bowls as an alternative to regular bowls. We can choose low-fat, healthy ingredients and arrange various ingredients in the bowl without special embellishments or finishing touches. The color of the coconut shells will add warm tones to the overall food, which looks close to nature and makes people happy. When tasting the food, you will smell the slight fragrance of coconut shells, adding a layer of flavor to the food, which is wonderful.

Fruit Ice Bowl.

The most favorite part of the hot summer is the ice bowl, where various fruits are cut into small pieces and put into the coconut bowl with ice cream and milk. With a wooden spoon, enjoy this icy cold.


After the bottom of the coconut bowl polished flat is a perfect storage box, you can put some small parts. Such as keys, jewelry, chargers, soap, etc.


Carve the coconut bowl into a semi-hollowed out shape and flatten the wax oil into the coconut bowl to turn it into a beautiful candle bowl. Imagine lighting the candle with the pearlescent light shining through the carved coconut bowl… very beautiful and meaningful, though! Please note that the coconut bowl is wooden and must be safe, so I hope that such products do not appear again, coconuten from a safety point of view, will not produce any dangerous products. Please choose a safer lamp instead of candles.


If it is dangerous to put candles into coconut bowls, then using a real lamp instead is a very good choice. We have processed the coconut shell to produce a fully hollowed-out state, customizing a variety of carved patterns to achieve different effects.
