My homemade decoration out of beans, rice and couscous, sounds like dinner!
If you look hard enough around your house I bet you could find items to make something similar to this layered bean and rice vase.
I had the glass vase already, it originally came with flowers in it for some occasion and I liked it so I saved it. I had a few things in my pantry and after some experimentation here is what I came up with.
The bottom layer is pearl couscous, the middle layer is long grain wild rice and the top layer is just dried red kidney beans. I used these specifically because they were open and had gone stale, you could try different color lentils or peas layered on top of each other, there's a million possibilities.
