New ideas come to the craziest places like grocery store. When you go again start to put in your basket packages with beans. Create beautiful decorative pieces of wall art for your kitchen with white and black beans!


  • Black Beans
  • White beans
  • White glue
  • Acrylic Paint in black
  • (2 ea.) 9 x 12 canvases
  • Clear Acrylic Sealant
Begin by drawing out your silhouettes. Draw a coffee cup and the work “Coffee” on one canvas.  Just the outline is all you need, and if it is easier, you could use a stencil to make the lettering.  Just remember that the beans are about 1/4″ wide.

On the other canvas, draw an outline of a teapot and the word “Tea”.

Paint everything that is going to be covered with black beans with the black acrylic paint.  You do this so that when the beans are placed, the white canvas will not show around the edges of the beans.

Now the fun part.  Add glue to a small section of the black, and start placing the beans.  Cover all your black areas with black beans, adding glue as you go.

Allow the one canvas to dry and fill in the black beans on the second canvas.

Finish both canvases by filling in the white areas with white beans.  Use black acrylic paint to paint the edges of the canvas to give it a finished look, and then be sure to coat the entire project in clear acrylic sealant.

And there you have it!
