Hey everybody –
Have you all been enjoying your summer?
Today, I am sharing how to paper mache pears using paper sack and mod podge.
It is all in the details, and those details include these paper mache pears –
They are super easy to make!
I just started out with a bunch of plastic pears, which you can find anywhere.
Next, tear up some paper bags or packaging paper.
Just small pieces to layer over each other.
Then, pour some Mod Podge out onto a paper plate and get started..
You will work in small sections at a time.
A little MP, then a piece of paper.
Over, and over and over again.
You will need to get your hands messy to smooth and mold the papers around the pear.
Remember – layers are important.
When you are done, it should look like this…
I found the best way to let them dry is to put them on waxed paper since they won’t stick.
And when they are dry, you will have this…
The perfect way to update an “old staple” in home décor.
I’ll be using these as a staging accessory with my fall decor.

I’ve had Fall on my mind, too, and these pears are setting a string of ideas in motion! Thanks so much for sharing.
Love the update! Great idea, and since I never remember my reusable bags, I have plenty of brown grocery bags around here!

Why paper mache pears when you already had a pear?
