My Version

I'm joining:

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
craft knife
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!
