Glass vases need not always be for flower arrangements. This post is an example for that. I used different kind of lentils and beans from my pantry to create these easy but beautiful centerpieces. It hardly takes 5 minutes to put everything together. It would be a fun project to do with kids.
Try with any kind of lentils, beans or grains as long as the colors contrast well. Just layer them one after another in a clean glass vase. Top it with a candle and voila....you got a cool centerpiece ready to adorn any table.
Here is the list of what I used -
Black eyed peas
Once you get bored with the look, take the top layer out, wash the remaining layers well and use it for soups or stews :)
