Scrap piece of 3/4 in. pine
Diamond Dust or glitter of your choice
Here's a tutorial for making wood jelly beans. The pattern is at the bottom of this tute.
First cut the jelly beans out of 3/4 in pine or wood of your choice. Sand smooth and round the edges a little. Then paint the jelly beans with dark brown paint. Sand it leaving edges and places where you can see the wood. Be sure and paint both sides and ends. Now select which colors you want to paint your jelly beans. I chose red, yellow, orange, black, green and purple. Put a coat of paint on, let dry and then sand leaving bare spaces on the edges and in the center. Now put a coat of walnut stain on and rub off, leaving the candy the darkness that you prefer. Be sure and wear rubber gloves when using stain.
