Autumn is on its way slowly but surely here in the south. We have a very old Little Golden Book that actually belonged to me when I was small that is about the seasons. I love it because the words and the illustrations just get you excited about the fun things in each new time of the year. The words for fall are-
Fall is here. Can you feel it?
Crisp, cool air….better put on your jacket!
Can you taste it?
Crunchy red apples just picked from the tree.
Can you smell it?
Spicy pumpkin pie baking in the oven.
Can you see it?
Can you hear it?
Bright-colored leaves rustling when you walk.
Fall is here!
All of those thinks make me feel all warm and cozy. And with this upcoming fall season comes crafts, crafts, and more crafts. I am definitely not the best at seasonal decorating but once again, I came across a really fun little wreath idea to help usher in the season.
Dried lima beans seem like the nastiest thing to ever eat. I don’t know….there really may be a population of people out there who enjoy such delicacies but my horizons are not quite that broad yet. So instead of eating my Lima beans I’m making a wreath for my kitchen door. What I love the most about this wreath is that I got the Styrofoam form at the Dollar Tree for $1 and the beans themselves cost about $1.79. I already had glue sticks and a scrap piece of ribbon. I sat down in the middle of our guest room floor and started gluing. I made sure to keep them all facing the same way and keep my lines straight. My husband walked in while I was in the middle of this project. I’m sitting on the floor gluing Lima beans to Styrofoam while listening to my favorite radio show…The Rick and Bubba Show. He says, “This must be therapeutic for you.” And he was right. I enjoy a quick project of taking a few things and making something super cute.It didn’t take me too long to fill it all up. I used a 12 inch wreath and one 16 oz bag of regular size Lima Beans.I LOVE how it turned out. I love the texture and the colors. I attached it to my door using a suction cup. You can go so many places with this idea. I’m thinking split peas and lentils….etc. Love it!!
It’s still very warm here in our neck of the woods but I do think it’s time to say, “Happy Fall Y’all!”
