Silver-Leafed Pears

A stack of shining fruit makes an eye-catching holiday centerpiece.

What You Need:

If the flowers will be on display for only a day, you can use fresh roses.
  • 7 plastic pears with stems
  • Fine sandpaper
  • Acrylic paint in metallic silver

  • 2 oz. gold leaf adhesive
  • Silver leaf in a 25-sheet package
  • Soft brush
  • Spray sealer
  • 7 white silk roses

1. Sand the pears lightly to degloss the surfaces.

2. Paint the pears with one to two coats of silver paint, allowing the paint to dry between coats. Paint the leaf stems and backs of the leaves silver.

3. Add silver leaf. Apply adhesive to the pears. Let the adhesive set for about 30 minutes until tacky. Apply silver leaf over the adhesive; brush off the excess with a soft brush.

4. Seal the pears with a clear protective sealer, following the manufacturer's directions.
