Halloween Bean and Lentil Vase Filler

Pin It

I confess, I am addicted to the bulk bean bins at the farmer's market.  I can't help myself.  So when I saw the red lentils with their rich orange color I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.

As I have for Easter and again at the Memorial Day, I am once again using low cost bulk beans as holiday vase filler for centerpieces and mantlescapes.*
To get the black vs. orange look I used alternating layers of black beans and red lentils.

I also through a few great northern beans in one vase to add another color and larger texture:

As a cluster on the table atop some fake dollar store leaves, they are pretty cute.

HAPPY HALLOW-BEAN!

*What? Doesn't everyone use the word "mantlescape" in daily conversation?

  1. I love your bean-in-vase ideas. I haven't done this yet but I am going to look for lentils tomorrow. And after Halloween? Toss it all in the crockpot with some ham and onion and voila! Dinner!

    Love this! I use beans all the time but have never had the orange in my vases. I hope you will link up to my Wickedly Creative Halloween Ideas Party if you haven't already.
