Bean Mosaic Owl Craft
Kids will have fun making this Bean Mosaic Owl as they sort through the various types of beans in a soup mix to find the colors that are just right for their owl. We found enough different beans in one package of soup beans to make this owl.
A Mosaic is a form of art that uses small pieces of material, such as tile, beads, paper or stones, arranged in a pattern to create a picture. Mosaics were first created over 4,000 years ago. Source: Our Pastimes – Facts About Mosaic Art
- Different color beans
- Tacky glue
- Print out pattern.
- Mount on cardboard so when the beans are added it will be strong enough to hold the weight. You might want to do this in a cookie sheet that has sides so you can keep a small supply of beans handy to work with.
- Spread a thin layer of glue on a small area at a time and place the colored beans that match the pattern on that area. You can follow our picture or make your own color combinations.

what do you put on the beans to perserve them?
Dried beans really don’t need a preservative butyou could always put a lacquer on them if you like
could you do this on a canvas
I would think so, but be sure that you are using a strong glue like E600 otherwise it will start to fall apart at some point.
