Jute covered pears.
Jute ranks right up there with drop cloths, distressed white paint, burlap and rope – love.
A little knock off of Ballard’s giant jute pears.
And how about some jute eggs for Easter?
Here’s how I made the pears:
(I used the same method for the eggs.)
1. I used newspaper mache pears from Michaels ($1.50 each) but regular plastic pears would do and standard jute string.
2. Start at top, glue near stem and wind jute adding glue every few inches.
Too easy. So why pay $25 for Ballard’s giant pear when you can have a whole vase full for a fraction of the cost?
