Super cute banner. And shop owner very sweet. I didn't realize there would be so much yellow (dots and ribbon) but I probably missed in listing. Will be cute for mantle.

SHOP HERE!! I was waiting to post a review until I get my fireplace decorated. This is the cutest wooden spool rag garland ever! I absolutely love and adore it. Now that July 4th is over I will be putting out all my pillows and garland from TheLittleGreenBean! You can't beat the quality and perfection she puts in her work. She puts so much pride in each piece you definitely will never go wrong with her shop. I order from her every single holiday. Her homemade things bring so much warmth to my home! She is very accommodating and will great lengths to give you what you request.

About

Being creative is my passion! I love to take recycled items and turn them into beautifully hand crafted home decor!

I started my shop after discovering how much I love to sew with recycled burlap. Burlap Christmas tree skirts, Christmas stockings, banners, pillows and owls are just a few of the items you will find here!
Recycled burlap and wool sweaters are my favorite materials to use and being eco friendly is a bonus! Many of my creations begin from a coffee bean bag! I can often be found in my craft room creating something!
___________________________________________________________________________
Business Name:
My business name came from my hubby and I having a conversation about what to call my shop. I knew I wanted it to have something to do with coffe, but not to be confused with a coffee shop. Coffee beans are green prior to roasting, and my burlap is from recycled coffee bean bags. Together, we came up with " The little Green Bean"!

2014
I was fortunate enough in 2014 to sell some items that will be used with some famous actors. There was a movie promo for the Movie "Sex Tape" with Cameron Diaz & Jason Segal & my white burlap pillow with a red heart was used in the interview! She sat right next to it! The pillow can be seen here:

I also sold a banner to be used as a set prop for an upcoming film with Robert Deniro and Anne Hathawy! This movie will be out in Theaters this fall!

My last big accomplishment of that year was being a nominee for the 2014 American Made awards with Martha Stewart!

I really love what I do, I have fun creating and sewing with my 2 little boys! I have 3, but the teenager is not so much into crafts! I couldn't do any of this without my wonderful hubby! He helps with everything! He also does all my shipping!
Thanks so much for stopping by I look forward to making you something amazing!

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my items are handmade by me. I use recycled burlap on almost all of my items, which lends to the unique look of each item I make. Sometimes there are minor imperfections in the burlap which I will patch on the back if needed. If there is true damage in the weave I do not use it on anything that I sell.

The hems of all ruffles are left raw and unfinished intentionally, it is part of the unique & rustic look of all my items, so some fraying may occur. I spend a great deal of time handmaking each and every item, if you would like something done differently than what is picture or described in the item listing, please let me know at the time of purchase.

Personalization is done by a fabirc applique that is ironed in place. At this time I do not have the ability embroider. I can stamp your applique using acrylc paint if you prefer that. Please message me when ordering!

Please be aware that all items are made once the order is placed. This means there may be a slight variation between the item pictured and the item you receive. This is what makes my shop unique, no two items will be 100% identical.

All items are my own original designs and are produced by me.

I want to ensure a happy and satisfied customer at all times. I love custom orders! Thank you so much for stopping by!
