Working at a coffee shop we tend to have a lot of coffee beans lying around!  I’m always trying to find fun ways to incorporate coffee into  our daily decor.  I love the look of the coffee bean votives, but wanted something a little more festive.  I think the touch of paint gave these beans exactly the makeover they needed!

I love how vibrant the painted beans look alongside the regular coffee beans.  It gives such a nice contrast and the colors really pop!

I love how versatile these votives are!  I can see them being a great gift for a teacher or friend. They are cute to just sit on a shelf as decor, but they also would make such a romantic table setting for a Valentine dinner for two!
