Decorative Pear (That Looks Good Enough to Eat!)

Elisha of Pneumatic Addict Furniture has admired Ballard’s Terra Cotta Pears for years, but it wasn’t until a recent craft store trip that she was inspired to make her own. Elisha combined a Styrofoam ball and cone to make her 13 inch pear form and then added texture and depth with tissue paper and paint. I think she did a great job giving it a realistic look!

Feather Ball Ornament

Mari of Crab+Fish almost bought these feathery ornaments from West Elm before she realized they couldn’t be that hard to replicate. With a few minutes of time and a Styrofoam ball, ric rac, and feathers, Mari did just that! She says, “ My version isn’t quite as fancy and flouncy and orderly as West Elm’s version…but I like my puffball version better!”
