beans.



Materials needed :
Mod Podge, brush, different colored DRIED beans and peas, canvas, pencil


Draw out your design :


Working in sections, brush with Mod Podge and secure beans...


When it's finished, paint surface once with Mod Podge, let dry, and hang!
Experiment with different patterns and try using rice, popcorn kernels, or even noodles!  This was fairly time consuming, but worth it.  I worked daily in sections and reacquainted myself with every lyric in Les Miserables.  The larger beans went faster - I recommend using them if you plan on making this project with children.  

Happy creating + xoxo,
Karen
