I love using jars for home decor and crafts.. and I happened upon this really cute layered colored bean design in an apothecary type jar today. Talk about a budget craft! The beans were colored black and orange just for Halloween decor. Isn't that clever! You really could do this for any holiday or just display a nice colorful layer of all kinds of beans for all year around. To see a really cute blog and how she colored the beans go to Lookie What I did.
