I bought a vase 50% off at Michael's
Orange candle at Wal-mart
2 bags of each, kidney beans, corn kernels, and split peas.
I started with the split peas and make a nice layer on the bottom of the vase.
I added the rocks in the middle to add some height to the peas without adding even more peas
Next came the layer of kidney beans and then a layer of corn kernels (no picture)
Next, I added the orange candle in the center of the vase
I added some raffia to the middle of the vase. I tried to make a bow and that did NOT work out.
Here it is on my mantle
Start with a round brown placemat
Add 3 different size vases
With 3 different size candles, and they all have a brown color tone to them. Place corn kernels in each vase, then the candles. I added a couple of fake fall leaves to the back of each candle. Placed them on the
place-mat on my coffee table. Then I added a few more leaves and berries to the mat.
