Decorative Bean Bottle

  • clean jar or bottle
  • assorted dried beans
  • rubber band
  • cotton wadding


Start by layering the beans in various colors to the top of the jar. Then tap lightly to settle down the beans and then keep adding more beans till it is full.


Cut a piece of cotton wadding the same size as the lid. Place wadding on top and place the fabric over it to finish it off. Then tie a ribbon around the lid.

If you are using a decorative bottle you can just glue the lid closed and forget about the fabric. Dried beans can be bought in health food stores or found in your supermarket.

My son did this in Crafts 1 in 4-H many years ago. They found a fancy bottle and because they did not have the cork they put a piece of burlap over the top and tied it tight with a piece of tan colored string. Using burlap for a lid would enable any bottle to be used.

I still have the bottle on my kitchen counter much to the chirgrin of my now teenage son.
