Fall Bean Wreath

Hi Friends!

I have been busy decorating my home for fall this week.  I usually start my fall decorating around my Book Page Wreath.  I have been working on my dining room and thought it would be interesting to have a wreath made of beans or grains.

I couple years ago my son and I made candle holders out of beans and glue and still had the supplies.

I was inspired by the bean pumpkin made by Delineate Your Dwelling and decided to get out the beans and create a wreath.


I liked the colors of the Pinto, Lima and Black Turtle beans and luckily they were already in my cabinet.

Armed with my hot glue-gun and  a chipboard wreath  I began to create my fall bean wreath.

This was a great “naptime” project.  It took almost no time to complete and cost almost nothing.

Happy Fall!

    I’m in love with your wreath! I like the clean lines and the natural colors – perfect for a dining room. It’s so fall like, too. I remember gluing beans to a picture in VBS when I was a little girl and how much fun it was. I’m going to remember this one!
