Jelly Bean Fun
Nothing says Spring more to me that a bag of beautiful jelly beans. Now granted, they are yummy to eat, but they are also a wonderful way to decorate inexpensively around your home!
An old mason jar filled with jelly beans and bright spring ribbon to tie it up! Doesn't it just "pop"with color?
Here I used little candle holders with tea lights nestled on top. In the fall they contained popcorn (unpopped) and candy corn, at Christmas they had cranberries, and in Feb. I used candy hearts. I did the same thing for the large hurricane globe below.
It's hard to tell but this is a big hurricane globe that has a large candle inside. If I could give one helpful decorating suggestion it would be to try and find a hurricane globe either at a yard sale, thrift store or just buy one. It is one of the most versatile decorating pieces you can have because it is so easy to change the look to reflect a season or a mood. In the summer I plan to put sand in it and have seashells gathered around. The same holds true with small votive holders! Another helpful suggestion is to have a ribbon box that you can keep all of your ribbon in. Every season I open my box and I have the appropriate ribbon to use! I'll be back tomorrow with one more Spring decorating idea. Hope to see you then! In the meantime, I hope you have some jelly bean fun of your own!
