Black Eyed Peas are for Crafting and Eating!

It may be Christmas Eve, but I am already thinking ahead to next week and New Years! In the South we have a tradition involving black eyed peas. Some people eat them on New Years Day to ensure good luck all year long, but my logic was that if you craft with them on New Years Day as well as eat them it might make your new year extra lucky! Grab some dried black eyed peas, Tacky Glue and get ready for an all new I Love to Create Post.

Dried Beans
Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Wooden Plaque
Sublime Stitching Transfer Paper
Embroidery Pattern
Gold Cording

You want to choose an image that is not terribly detailed to use for your bean art. I found that embroidery patterns work great. I chose this owl from Q is for Quilter in the Hoop Love Embroidery Pool. Using transfer paper and a pen trace your image onto a piece of wood.

One section at a time apply your Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue and your beans. The more beans you use the better since they come in all kinds of colors and will help give your image more depth.

I glued the owl and the stick he is perched on first. Next I went around the edge of the owl and glued down some gold cording.

To ensure good luck in 2010 I filled in the rest of the empty space with more black eyed peas.

With the rest of your black eyed peas try my favorite bean dip recipe.
