DIY Bean Pumpkins




    I was baby-sitting some kids for 6 hours on Saturday. I decided to come up with a fall craft to do. At a camp I went to one year, they had a project like this with beans. You would take a sliver marker and draw on a black piece of paper your design. We didn't have as many colors of beans, but at least we had three colors. I drew a pumpkin with a face. If I did this again I would make the curls bigger, because once you put the green beans on it is hard to see it a vine that small. Overall I think it was a fun thing to do, and the kids loved it.

Supplies:
•Sturdy Black Paper (It can get weighed down with beans and glue)
•Silver Marker
•Glue (I used Elmer)
•Beans (color depends on what you are doing)

First I drew my design:

Then I covered some area with glue and started to lay beans on the drawing:

These are the beans I used:

Paper towels are handy for this:


 Finished work:



 To top this craft of I read a book simply called, "Pumpkins"
