As some of you know, I make craft videos for other companies…and this month is one of my faves- harvest napkin rings made from dried beans. I’ll tell you why.
I love it because I straight-up stole this craft from my grandma.
Yup, Grandma Helen was quite a crafter. And once upon a time, she made a WHOLE WREATH from dried beans and seeds. She made these little circles from recycled cardboard and then painstakingly glued little beans onto them…which then she wired onto wreath form. No pictures exist of this wreath, but trust me- it was awesome. Until the mousies found it under my bed, at least.
That woman was thrifty!
Anyhoo, her wreath has been lodged in my memory these past 40 years or so, and now I’m channeling her in this napkin ring craft. This video pretty much shows you everything you need- in about two minutes.
If you want more info, just hope over the Creativity Connection page and check it out!
