Lima Bean {wreath}


Okay, I know what you all are thinking, not another wreath, right?! Well, my front door needed some extra love, and I found a really easy way to do it--a Lima bean wreath. I've seen this idea on several blogs, and finally got around to making my own.


Wanna make one as well??

Let's get started--


-Wreath form
-Lima beans
-Glue gun
-Spray paint

Simply glue the Lima beans all over your wreath (I used 1 1/2 bags of the large Lima beans), spray paint the desired color, add a ribbon or other embellishment & you have yourself a fun new wreath.

Very easy!

Oh how cute! I've seen a very similar wreath but it was made out of acorns... it didn't work out nearly as well as yours did.

Who would have thought lima beans would look so pretty?! I love it.

OhioMomPatriot said...

This really is surprising. I would never have thought to use beans to decorate anything. I like it. Thanks for sharing!

Dear Sweet Home said...

What a darling idea! Lima beans are the perfect color green - very creative.

Katie said...

Oh this project is dear to my heart--it reminds me so much of my acorn wreath I made in Nov (http://littlethingsbringsmiles.blogspot.com/2010/11/acorn-wreath.html)

I just love this and so impressed you thought to use lima beans!!! It's great! Thank you for sharing, I'm excited to check out the rest of your blog.

Have a good night!

amber @ barbwired said...

Well I'll be! Lima beans?!? Who knew they were so cute? Well I guess you did huh? LOL

Ruth H. said...

That is a gorgeous wreath! I've never been a fan of the lima bean, but this could very well change my mind!

Kristen said...

Beautiful!! I used that color paint on my recent branch that I made into art...but in the evenings it looked like glow-in-the-dark. It just had to be repainted, but I miss the springy, happy color.

I'm visiting from Katie's Nesting Spot and am your newest follower. I would love for you to stop by www.decoratingdiy.blogspot.com and see my blog (and perhaps follow)!

I've seen other beans but not lima yet! And love the bright yellow color you chose. Did it stick well to the beans? Visiting from Homemaker on a Dime.
