Remember my spray painted beans from my guest bedroom? Well I decided to make some in Valentine's colors and figured I'd give a tutorial and share a few tips.
I've found the easiest way to do these is using a shallow box. Spread the beans out in a single layer and give them a coat of paint. Shake the box and spray some more; keep shaking and spraying to cover all sides. Work quickly because they will start sticking together. Once they are dry you can break them apart. Let them dry completely before using them.
*I've found that flat paint works a little better than glossy -- they don't become so sticky. But if you use glossy you can give them a coat of clear sealant and that will help.*
I also thought it would be fun to spray paint some conversation hearts. I bought them on clearance last year since I don't like to eat them and figured they'd be cute for decorating. They match my new plate perfectly! :)
