Glittered Pears

I saw these glittered pears in a magazine and I thought they would be really pretty on a table.  You will need an inexpensive faux pear.

Then cover your pear with Mod Podge.  I applied mine with a sponge brush.
Then all you need to do is cover it completely with glitter.

The glitter I used was called Glamor Dust, it was very fine. (Hobby Lobby carries it.)

Last, I trimmed a silk leaf and hot glued it to the base of the stem of the pear.  I found the leaves in the bridal department at Hobby Lobby too. 

Now all you need to do is decorate your holiday table.  
I will join these web sites, go and visit them.
