Old beans, corn, and rice can make a great mosaic design hanging.

Approximate Time: 1-2 hours



  1. Cut a piece of cardboard the size you'd like for your decor. Draw a design on the cardboard with a pencil.
  2. Arrange many different kinds of beans and rice in piles to get your design.
  3. Apply glue in each area and lay beans/rice securely.
  4. When the design is complete, lay wax paper over the glued design and pile many books on the design over night to dry.
  5. Attach to a backdrop of either a woven flat basket, a plate, etc.
