This is one of those DIYs you are either  really excited to make or you pin it out of design but laugh at the fact that there’s no way in sweet heaven you’re spending that much time gluing beans onto a pumpkin. Understandable. But it’s also one of those DIYs that you feel so accomplished and proud when you’ve completed it and can share it with your family and friends at your Thanksgiving table. It really adds a lifted element of design to the table and shows off your hand craft skills. Try placing your completed DIY Aztec Bean Pumpkin on a candle stand for a WOW table center piece.
