Cook up a work of art without nearing the kitchen, and make a bunches of beans wreath.
What You'll Need:
- Foam plate
- Assortment of uncooked beans
- Clear-drying craft glue
- Plastic spoon
- Acrylic gloss paint
- Ribbon or yarn
- Optional: beads, charms
Cut out the center of a foam plate. In a large bowl or pot, mix uncooked beans with glue. Be sure the beans are completely covered with glue. Spoon the beans onto the cut plate -- make sure they are spooned on in fun heaps. Let the glue dry completely.
Paint the wreath however you'd like or to fit a season or holiday. Glue on beads, charms, or ribbon bows for a more festive look. (For a Christmas wreath, you could paint it green and then glue on red beads.)
Tie the ribbon to the top of the wreath for a hanger.
