Day #8: Beans as Decor!

It’s Day #8 in the 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor series

(I don’t post one day of the week, so really there will be 27 days of fall decor)

Anyways….today’s topic:

Decorating with Beans!

Are you laughing?

I am laughing….but just because it sounds funny.

Beans actually are perfect to add in decor for fall!

….and we all know beans are cheap. To eat and to decorate with!

I love adding them to jars.

….and I love adding jars in vignettes.

…and I love to put vignettes everywhere.

Especially for fall.

You can add beans to so many places.

Anywhere that you need to look a little more “fall-ish”.

Here I’ve added beans around my candle, and topped them with the only acorns I could find (they were small and green).

Jars, bowls, and trays all look great with beans and candles.

Here are some other bloggers that have shared this frugal idea.
