Fall Wreath

Well, it was about that time to take down my Summer Wreath. Although I loved it, I have been itching to get my fall decorations up. Brooke at All Things Thrifty had posted this lima bean wreath tutorial and I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. The thing I was most giddy about was the paint color that I knew I was going to choose.

For this project I used one 2 pound bag of lima beans.
I started by first covering the front side of the wreath form. I just piled all the beans up in the middle and just grabbed and hot glued.
 For the sides, it was easiest to sit on the floor and place the wreath up and down and just glue and rotate.
 Then, I did the same thing on the inside of the wreath. I left the back completely blank, so it would lay flat against my door. Next up was COLOR!!
 Can we talk about this color? Krylon's Bauhaus Gold. It's a warm mustard yellow. LOVE! I knew against my red door, with my orange pumpkins for fall, that Mustard Yellow was the way to go. It's my new favorite color.
 Yay! So simple, so sophisticated looking.
 Who knew lima beans could look so good??


  1. I made this with your inspiration!!! Mine has four rows of beans on the front - used the same color paint but I used ribbon and faux gerbera daisies :o) I wish I could post a picture here to show you. lol.

  2. I made your wreath for my front door and I love it! Thank you so much for the inspiration and wonderful tutorial! Here's a pic:
