ridiculously easy st. patrick's day decor

Want to know how to make something cute for St. Patrick's Day in under five minutes?  Without it looking really tacky?  I originally saw this idea on Pinterest, but the link only went to a picture of it, so I couldn't find the actual source.  The picture had clear glass vases filled with little green things.  At first I thought, what are those and where can I get them?  A few days later I saw someone making split pea soup on Food Network, and it dawned on me.  Duh, they're split peas!

I grabbed a couple of bags of them at the grocery store.  Then today I found some twine and a glass milk bottle from Goodwill, and here's what I came up with in about three minutes.


Not too shabby.  Or maybe it IS shabby....shabby chic, maybe?  :o)

I think the peas and twine give it a nice rustic look.  Might be cute to stick some silk flowers in there.

I also tried it with mason jars, and I like them even better.

Just enough green to be festive, without looking like something that you made in grade school.  :o)
