Mod Podged Pear Tutorial

This pear is super easy to make and you can make it with all of your paper scraps!

Supplies Needed:
Plastic Pear
Coordinating scrapbook paper (don't use cardstock because it is harder to mod podge and it's not as pliable.)
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush
Distressing Ink

Step 1: Chose your scrapbooking paper (this is great for any scraps that you have)
Step 2: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to a small portion of your pear. You don't want to mod podge it all at once or it will dry before you can apply all your paper.

Step 3: Rip a piece of scrapbook paper and paste it on the pear with more mod podge. You can rip your paper as big or little as you'd like, but the bigger you get the harder it is to keep it from wrinkling.
Step 4: Repeat the process of pasting your paper all over your pear. Don't be afraid to overlap your papers, it makes it look more rustic.

Step 5: Apply some distressing ink on a paper towel and rub it on your pear. Don't get too much on or your paper will all blend in together. I just tried to highlight where I ripped my paper to make it stand out more.

And there you have it! A rustic, fallish looking pear! I have made a couple so far and want to make a couple more and put them all in a bowl on my table! Not to mention this project only cost me $1 for each pear!!!
