DIY Fall Craft Project


As part of my #AugustPinterestChallenge, I wanted to make this fall craft project. . . but I never got around to it in August. And besides, it was still summer and I just wasn’t ready for a fall decoration yet. But this past weekend, I was all about fall when I busted out that can of pumpkin, so I decided to tackle this project too.


And it was so easy, and (IMHO) it turned out super cute. Pay no attention to my husband, who commented that while it is “super cute”. . . why did I make another thing that needs to be moved. . . men – they just don’t understand craft projects, do they? Winking smile 

The inspiration was from this on Pinterest.


All you need is
1. Hurricane glass
2. Green peas
3. Red beans
4. Yellow popcorn
5. Twine
6. Fall candle

*the amount of peas, beans and popcorn you need will depend on the size of your hurricane glass. For my project, I only needed 1 bag of each.
**You can find the hurricane glass at any craft store. I found this one at Hobby Lobby. <—BTW I LOVE that store. Winking smile 

And it is super easy.

Just layer the peas, beans and popcorn. Really, you could do them in any order. I put the candle in after the beans and poured the popcorn around it. And finish with the twine in a cute bow. Done and done. Smile Happy Fall.

      I love getting out my decorations for each season/holiday!! It is one of the perks of having your own place. 🙂

  2. That’s really cute! I love Pinterest, but I never seem to make anything I pin. LOL

  4. I’m always in awe of crafty people. Even if the crafts are simple, I’ll always be impressed cause I’m not crafty at all! I once tried to make a pillow with my college roommate and that’s about as far as it went.

      Thanks Hannah – I really love how it turned out too – and bonus points because it was so quick and easy!!

  6. I love it! I keep planning to change out some vases with more seasonal looks, but haven’t done it. This looks easy and quick enough for me to really do! And beans make great sensory toys for toddlers 🙂

  7. This is so simple and SO cute! Something like this will look great on a side table for fall.

  10. This is so cute! I saw this in Pinterest last year and have been wanting to make it. You did such a. Great job 🙂 I also saw one where they used candy corn as the decoration….doubles as a decoration and delicious snack.

  11. Cute!!! Nice work! 🙂 I’m always so lazy about holiday decor, because it depresses me that it will only be around for a month or two, and then I’ll have to figure out how to store it…but I do love it. 🙂

      Agreed – that is always a hard one to try to store stuff. . .I am not sure what I am going to do with this, I’ll let you know!
