Pinto Bean Wreath

I made this wreath from a foam wreath and pinto beans (both from the dollar store).  I didn't take pics along the way because I didn't have a camera at the time.  I just used my glue gun and glued the beans on in a diagnal line.  (some places look better than others)  I have seen wreaths like this before, I just can't remember where. So If any of you know please let me know the link of some!  Once I was finished I just spray painted in green.  It is still in need of another coat. I just added some craft flowers to make it more springy!

Have a great day!
