Since I’ve decided to pears in my kitchen, I’ve been keeping my eye out for pear ideas. In all the blogs I follow I saw this cute idea found on Grosgrain. It’s light bulbs turned into pears, by covering them with twine. I had the twine on hand, but we only have the newer spiral light bulbs, so I didn’t know where to get old round light bulbs. A neighbor had put a sack of light bulbs in the basement (we live in a condo, so we share the basement); saying they were for free. I love it! A price I’m willing to pay. I snagged 3 of them up, plugged in my hot glue gun and started wrapping the twine around them. We went outside and got a twig for the stems and they were ready to go. C1 tries to grab at them, but I don’t know how fragile they are now being covered in glue and twine, so I be sure to not let him play with them.
Hubby seems to only see that they are light bulbs, but a friend hadn’t seen a round light bulb in so long, he only saw that it was a pear. I’m pleased with the result. I’ve been doing well at finding brown pear items. Blues and greens are hard to match, and I’ve made everything I want out of fabric with matching fabric, so having all the brown accent pears is a great touch.
