Welcome Alli guest posting from Made with Happy sharing this fun DIY craft project!
Now that Fall is here and Halloween is right around the corner, it seemed only fitting to come up with a wreath that is is both fun for Fall and Happy for Halloween. We think this Candy Corn Lima Bean Wreath does just that.We believe that when making a wreath is should not only be pretty, but simple and inexpensive too. We think that this beauty does just that. Here’s how we made it.
- Straw Wreath
- Two Bags of Large Lima Beans
- Yellow and Orange Spray Paint
- Hot Glue Gun with Glue
- Ribbon for Hanging
The first step for this project is to divide one of the bags of lima beans in half. Using newspaper or painters tarp, layout the beans in a single layer to paint. Spray one half the bag of beans yellow and the other half orange. Once they are dry, its time to start to assemble.Starting on the outside of the wreath, begin to glue a row of the same colored beans all the way to the inside. In most cases the wreath will be hanging on a wall or door and so there is no need to glue the beans in a full circle around the entire wreath because the back will be never been seen. So just stick to what is visible. I like to glue the beans at a slight diagonal, but it would look just as cute in straight rows or even random.Continue around the wreath until you have the entire wreath covered. From here, you simply add a ribbon to hang and viola, you have yourself a fun and festive Fall/Halloween Lima Bean Candy Corn Wreath that cost under $10 to make.Happy Fall and Happy Crafting!
