It is officially fall- and even though I am a summer lover- the cooler temperatures feel nice. Since I've moved in to our apartment, I have had a hard enough time decorating, much less decorating for a season, so I wanted to try a little fall decorating. As you know, Holly is the crafty one, so I looked up easy fall wreaths to make. Some looked cute, but really time consuming & way above my level.

So, here were my supplies:
Start on one edge & make vertical lines of lima beans. Eventually they will start being diagonal lines, but just keep going. You can fill in the holes later. Try to keep them as close together as you can. At first, mine were a bit more spaced, but I like the close look better.

If you can see the Styrofoam in places, its ok- the spray paint will cover it up.
And here is our Fall mantle!
Have you done any Fall decorating? Did you use leaves, pumpkins, gourds, or lima beans? Did you have an awesome fall mantle? Share any fall or mantle tips in the comments!
