Fashion your own miniature ornaments :
- Perfect to make realistic looking faux fruits.

You can make beautiful “sugar” pear ornaments with glass glitter and glue.
Working with spun cotton pear blanks – the basics
Spun cotton shapes are a breeze to work with. Any paint that works on paper will also work on them (we recommend a premium quality acrylic paint). You can also use any type of glitter as a finish (German glass glitter, metallic glitter, snow lookalike glitter, sugar lookalike glitter…). To cover the pears with glitter, simply apply craft white glue with a paintbrush and sprinkle the glitter on the shapes. Let dry until the glue turns from white to clear. Voila!
Each pear has a hole on top in which a faux stem can be inserted (floral stems sold at craft stores work great).
TIP : The hole can also be used to hold the spun cotton pears with a pick during the painting and decorating process. This way you won’t get any paint on your fingers.
