Lima Bean Orb
See how I turned a bag of lima beans into a cute decoration . . .
3 " styrofoam ball
Large bag of lima beans
Hot Glue Gun and sticks
For easy access, pour beans into a bowl;
Find something that will hold your styrofoam ball in place
as the weight of the beans will tilt the ball,
and with a hot glue gun, you need both hands :)
I'm using an OLD mill thread spool, it was my Mother's.
Plus, I'm propping it against my sewing machine.
*If you want a completed orb, simply continue
going all around the ball with the beans.
If you want to prop it on a candlestick,
I suggest finding a flat lid (white, preferably,
if you're not going to spray paint the finished project)
This is a V-8 bottle lid, that fits nicely in the upper part
of the candle stick; alternately, you could use a dowel
piece, or even on old candle piece, pushed into the ball.
This produces a cascading effect, like a flower bouquet.
On the bottom row, try to point your beans downward.
Here I am using my DIY T SHIRST DUSTING GLOVES
cleaning off my lantern for my photo shoot :)
I REALLY like the natural color of the bean,
against the black lantern, atop the pewter.
But, I MIGHT go back and spray paint it
the BLUE that is in my wallpaper.
Hmm, decisions, decisions.
HAPPY FRIDAY, Y'ALL!
