You could always trim the beans to make the bundle bite-sized, but I go with the two bite approach. 

Bite 1 takes the 1st half of beans to the mid-point of the bacon.  Leave the back half of the bacon to hold the bundle together for the second bite.

These make great finger food for gameday:

Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

Ingredients:

6-8 thick bacon slices
6 Tbs. (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 tsp. roasted garlic powder
1 1/2 lb. green beans, trimmed and blanched
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

Preheat an oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Pre-cook the bacon in a skillet/sautee pan for 4-6 minutes (Total).  You don't want the bacon to be fully cooked at this point, just browned a little on the edges but still pliable.  Remove bacon from heat and transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to cool.  Cut bacon in half crosswise.

Divide the green beans into 12-16 portions (to match available bacon), about 6 beans each. Gather each portion into a neat bunch and wrap a half slice of bacon around the center to hold the beans together. Place the bundles on the prepared baking sheet with the loose ends of the bacon underneath. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the bundles and drizzle with the butter mixture.

Put in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the green bean bundles to a warmed platter and serve immediately.
