Get ready for a fun four days of Christmas decor, crafts, recipes, and printables.  Today I want to share with you how to make these simple and pretty Frosted Pear Ornaments.
Frosted Pear Ornaments - Sandandsisal.com

To make Frosted Pear Ornaments you will need the following items:

  • faux decorative pears (available at most craft stores, or big box supermarkets)
  • white spray primer or white craft paint
  • ultra fine white glitter & white tinsel glitter
  • decoupage medium (Martha Stewart Glitter Decoupage or Mod Podge)
  • hot glue gun
  • ribbon

STEP 1) Spray your faux pears with a nice coat of white primer or feel free to use white craft paint. Allow to dry.

STEP 2) Coat the pears with a layer of decoupage medium. I used the Martha Stewart Glitter Decoupage.

STEP 3) While still tacky, sprinkle the ultra fine white glitter over the entire pear surface. Allow to dry.Christmas Ornaments - Frosted Pears

Step 4) With your hot glue gun, drizzle a layer of hot glue over the top of the pear, so it looks like frosting dripping down. Immediately sprinkle the hot glue with the white tinsel glitter. Frosted Pears

Step 5) Create a loop out of ribbon and hot glue the ribbon to the base of the stem.
