I was putting finishing touches on my fall decor and knew that my long neglected kitchen windowsill was missing something. It has afterall been sporting a fan for the last three months, and I wasn't feeling very inspired. And then today the fan was put in storage, and the window sill yelled at me to be decorated. (No joke, it actually did yell at me!)
I was making a list of things I needed to grab to top off my decor and decided to head to Pinterest to figure out one last thing. And then the idea hit me! I never knew how adorable beans could be, and they're the perfect color for fall.
I have a hard time letting go of jars, and shoe boxes, or boxes in general. Because I know the second I throw them out I'll find something to use them for. I'm borderline hoarder, it's ridiculous...off I went to the pantry. I kind of wanted a random look to this, so I chose jars of different shapes and sizes. I also tried to avoid those with labels still attached.
I gathered the supplies...
And began fussing around....
And this is what resulted
The jars ended up a little fuller than I wanted because some of the jar mouths were too small to fit the candle all the way inside. So filling them to the top solved that problem. But I like the look
Also I think the bean combo are beautifully colored for fall! Just perfect!
The twine I had left over from my fall leaves project along with the felt that I threw in. The colors didn't have enough red, so I threw in a little of my own.
And finally here is the picture of the windowsill after it's all said and done.
You can see how awesome it goes together with my fall leaves garland!
This project took 15 minutes and was free as I had everything on hand! Love those projects.
SO DARNED PROUD of myself tonight. I'm not a crafter, I"m a quilter, but apparently I'm being sucked into the dark side! Oh well...at least they have cookies there...(so I've been told...)
