This great craft from Patrice at Lemon Tree Creations is such a cool decoration. Check out how she made these woven pears:
Commenters were very flattering when they asked me how I had made them, when in fact I purchased them for an outrageous 5 dollars each (Yikes!). So, I set out to recreate what seemed to be a hit in my living room. Here is the result…
1)Collected my materials: Purchased long, cheap grass reeds at a local craft store (a whopping $1.59 for more than 20!), used styrofoam balls I already had, picked a dead branch of my small magnolia tree, and gathered my hot glue gun and sticks.
I am very happy with the final product, even if it isn’t quite as neat and tight at the original ones I purchased. And I am even happier to have found their current resting place, my new living room bookshelf!
Be honest and let me know what you think! You certainly have the option of painting them to acheive the nice green color the purchased ones had. I opted out because I like the mixture of that natural look! Good luck, and don’t forget to link to their flickr account if you try them out yourself. I am sure someone will out do my feeble attempts soon enough!
