RIP Lima Bean Wreath

May 26th, 2011

Remember my fun Lima Bean Wreath project, I wrote about clear back a badillion months ago!?! Well, the bad boy has finally been put to rest. (Actually it fell off for the millionth time and finally broke into too many pieces to repair.) Darn it! I loved it. If I could go back, I wouldn’t have used a Styrofoam wreath. I would have made it on a grass wreath instead. It would have held up much better in the long run.

By the way, this project was inspired by Dana’s Acorn Wreath from MADE. (One of my fave blogs…for sure).

I’ll be searching for the perfect wreath to take it’s place.

Any ideas for me? It can’t just be any old wreath.  Leave me a link if you have one you think I might like for me to check out!


  1. love my rosette wreath made out of leaves – -but you'll have to wait for fall for it….

  2. Um, totally no brainer- that awesome dark door needs a bright wreath for the summer months!!! May I suggest the awesome lemon wreath?!? Haha! Love that Lima one sad to see it retire!

    So jealous I won't be able to see the awesomeness that is you and Mandi on Tuesday!!

  3. I've done a couple of different versions with rosettes. Here's my most recent:
    There's a hundred different ways to make rosettes with fabric or paper and they're very versatile since you can use about any material. I think the next one I do will be totally covered in rosettes all the same color.

  4. I recently made a awesome wreath…well i think so :-) here is my link :
    Its a ruffle wreath,so easy and fun, could be done is any fabric:-)

  5. YES…I have the perfect solution. Boas wrapped around a straw wreath. I change the colors of the Boas throughout the year (and to give it a dusting which I never do-btw) you just take it outside and give it a good shake! Best of all it takes 5 minutes to make.

    Here's a picture of one I made for Halloween

  6. i'm digging the mossy wreaths… check 'em out!! and i LOVE me a square wreath :)

  7. I just finished a necktie wreath for Father's Day! You can see it here:


  8. A book page wreath! I have been wanting to make this one for so long:

  9. haha. funny that both our wreaths had similar deaths. yours lasted longer than mine though. RIP friend! Hope you find another fun wreath project :)
    And thanks for the link. Some fun traffic came over from your site.

  10. I have come across this one before…I think that it is really cute! Just a matter of deciding on which colors to use :)

  11. I made a felt rosette wreath and I have LOVED it. I change out the hanging ribbon to go with the season/holiday (currently a pretty floral on a black background for spring) and I get sooooooooo many compliments on it! I also love that it won't fade! Here it the one I made:

  12. I was JUST thinking about putting something like the moss wreath on my front door. I was thinking maybe doing a letter shape covered in moss and hung with ribbon like you have done. I've seen them in many wedding blogs and I just thought- Why couldn't I use that at home too? So I am! :)

  13. Oh, here's the link to the blog I was talking about!

  14. I really like this one

    She also has one that is more springy but I can't seem to find any pictures of it. It's basically mossy with some cute butterflies and flowers attached to it it.
