Last year I created a few of these pears and received several requests for a tutorial.  Since I’m making a few more this year, I finally posting a a tutorial with new pictures. 
You can’t go wrong with a dollar craft, especially when it turns out better than you imagine.  That’s why I was glad to see a few of these paper mache pears in the dollar aisle at Target a few weeks ago.
I used Folk Art’s Forest Moss and Hauser Green Light.
I just double dipped my sponge brush and then applied the paint evenly to the entire pear.
I used my Cricut to cut out a stencil of a partridge in a pear tree.
With the stencil in place, I used a scruffy brush to apply some cream paint.  Make sure your brush is dry or the paint will bleed under the stencil.
I topped it with some satin ribbon and placed it on a pedestal for show. This one is a wooden pear from a friend, which I lightly distressed:
These are paper mache:blog7
