The Anatomy of a Lima Bean Wreath: Part Two

And I'm back for part two of how my Lima Bean wreath came to be. I posted a few before & after fotos on Facebook and a few gals seemed to be into the idea, so I thought I'd do a little write up.

A couple months ago I came across this ahhhmazingly creative gal & her blog, All Things Thrifty! I mean who doesn't love pointers on how to save a buck now & then?! This girl does!

Supplies Needed:

Styrofoam wreath from Michael's or Hobby Lobby (with 40% off coupon, under $10)

Indoor/Outdoor ribbon from the Walmart craft section, color of YOUR choice $5

Depending on your door color, you may or may NOT want to spray paint. I decided to go with a rich glossy brown as our door color was too similar to the color of the beans
Krylon spray paint in glossy brown $4

One (i made the mistake of buying two) bag of the large lima beans from Walmart $3

Don't forget a hot glue gun & approx 10 sticks of glue!!!

Total: Less than $20!

Here are some photos to give you a visual play by play.

The trick is to start with a heavy slant with the beads

I lurve me some Krylon!

Cut a nice LONG piece of ribbon

And there she is!

Feel free to leave me comments with any and all questions!

Tootles and Happy Tuesday!
