Retro Pin Party over at 2 Crochet Hooks
Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays over at Coastal Charm
Met Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch
I received the new Fall Issue from The Country House
and was flipping through it when
these apples and pears caught my eye.
I liked the stars on them and they definately say Fall is here,
but $15.99 for 4 put the brakes on!
The I started thinking.
How can I make these?
I new I had Dollar Store faux apples and pears in my Treasure Pile,
I dragged out some supplies that I thought would do the trick.
The faux fruit
my spice mix
and of course..
Mod Podge had to be included!
I knew I would need a star stencil
so I cut one out of their catalog (just happened to be the right size ;))
traced it onto a piece of paper and cut it out.
I coated the fruit in Mod Podge and the dredged them in the spice mix.
When dry I coated them in Mod Podge again.
Let them dry thoroughly for a few hours then
just held on the stencil and
added the star with copper craft paint
I think they turned out pretty darn cute.
No they aren't the same color and
the star is painted on, not attached,
but I did say my version in the title! LOL
They were so easy and fun to make,
I even made some for my shop!
