How do I make a geometric bean pumpkin?

The first step was lightly drawing on the geometric triangle pattern with a pencil.  I just freehanded this party, it definitely does not have to be perfect.

I noticed that even with hot glueing the beans as close as possible to each other, you could still see the white pumpkin underneath showing through.  

So, I quickly grabbed my acrylic paints in coordinating colors to my beans and began to paint in the triangle shapes with brown and green acrylic paint.

Then, using a hot glue gun to secure, it was just placing bean by bean in my patterned shapes.

To finish off the geometric look, I added one row on top and bottom with the white kidney beans.  They don’t show up very well in the pictures but they were a perfect addition when enjoying this pumpkin in real life.
