Aren’t the changing seasons wonderful? I love that each season brings its own excitement!
Fall has always been my favorite. I love the color that it brings, the cooler temperatures and the anticipation of family gatherings!
Before I show you the cutest little craft you’ve ever seen, I want to share with you a bit of wisdom from my husband: ‘The problem wasn’t the apple on the tree… it was the pair under it‘! (Isn’t he funny?!?)
This twine pear certainly isn’t original with me, but I do love it! Any time I can take some ordinary household items and turn them into something that looks as good as these, well… I’m all over it!
You’ll need a few simple items:
- Light bulb (s)
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Stick or twig for stem
Begin with a dot of glue on the end of the fattest part of the light bulb. Stick on end of your twine to the hot glue.
After it cools and is ‘set’, begin to spiral, first the glue, and then winding the twine around in concentric circles until the light bulb is covered. When you reach the top of the pear, put a dollop of glue on the tip of the light bulb and attach the ‘stem’. Cut the twine and finish wrapping it, tucking it in beside the stem.
So easy. So impressive!!
Enjoy! I will be bringing the vignette that the pears are in soon! In the meantime, here is a pinnable image for you:
