Actually, I came across this idea way earlier, the one I saw they use colorful sand art ... just never a priorities in my DIY list. Well, just thought I give it a try today and give a bit modification to the material. I replace the colorful sand with my stock of beans in the kitchen. I bought a huge supply of beans yesterday... it's in the season and very cheap!
1. Any type of beans or grain you have in the kitchen... the colorful the better... (well depends how you like the effect to be) I use some barley, red bean, green bean, black bean,
2. Make sure your beans / grain are dry and clean. Rinse them ... dry under the sun... or oven.. or microwave... hair dryer... ( I know the list can go on... you all are such creative ones!)
3. A funnel... ( I make one out of the top part of a PVC drinking bottle)
4. Some old bottles.
1. Pour in the beans, you can layer.. mix... or tilt the bottle a bit ... just play with it... and have fun.
I let the beans to Jojo and Mei Mei and this is the result! ( They spend hour doing this... 5 minutes pouring the beans + 55 minutes picking up and sorting the beans from the floor.)
p/s : You can add a cute label on it to make it look more cute... but I am proceeding to the next project.... see you soon!
