I used medium sized round styrofoal balls, a bundle of colored twine from Dollar Tree, and cut up cinnamon sticks, along with a glue gun.
I started by gluing the end of the twine at the base of the ball. Then started gluing it around in a swirl...
And just kept going all around the ball until I got to the top...Now to be honest, I originally thought I was going to do apples.... BUT... a little light bulb went off above my head as I got to the top and I decided to do pears instead... So as I completed the ball, I started making a swirl on top of my first layer and went out far enough to start a pear shape, then went back on top of THAT layer.... so this would be a third layer of twine (are you with me?)
I just went back and forth, making each layer a little smaller until I got the desired height and shape of a pear! Then I stuck a piece of cinnamon stick on the top!
How fun would it be to have a green set as well, along with some red apples? Might have to make a little trip back to Dollar Tree to see what colors they have left!
