I used my old hard beans to make this turkey bean mosaic a long time ago. The mice didn't mind how old the beans were and ate half my creation. I patched it up relying on my memory to get it right. I don't think I got that black belly right.
Turkey Bean Mosaic
Cut out a turkey shape out of 1/4 inch plywood and spray paint black. Use various beans such as black, corn, lentils, kidney, red, navy, white, and pinto to make the mosaic. Glue beans with Tacky glue. Spray with varnish if desired. Keep out of reach of mice.
