Fall Decorating with Hurricane Globes

Before we know it fall will be upon us.  Here is a great but simple idea for you're fall decorating from the blog:  My Heart's Desire   I'll be headed to the store soon to get the supplies for these.

Do you have a "go-to" decorative item that you use for every season and you never tire of?  The Willow House Hemingway Hurricanes are two of my favorite versatile pieces that I change out many times a year. 
Fall is here (at least the calendar says so), and I decided to go with a natural look for these hurricanes, and I love how they turned out!
While I've had these hurricanes for years, I have seen many different versions at places like Target, Hobby Lobby, and even Wal-Mart.
For this project, I chose corn kernels, small red beans, and split peas.  
 Place the candle in the empty hurricane, then begin pouring the beans in very slowly around the candle to the desired level.  Repeat layers with different beans.
I tied a double string of simple jute (found at Hobby Lobby craft section) for an extra natural touch.
