 Making sugar fruit ornaments is surprisingly easy. All you need are faux fruits of your choice, like pears, oranges, lemons, pomegranate, and any other faux fruit you can find. The other ingredients you’ll need are matte mod podge, and embossing powder. There are a few varieties of embossing powder you can use for this DIY. You can find all of supplies needed for this DIY on my Amazon Shop (link). We used a mixture of clear and white, there is also a more sparkling powder. Best of all, the ingredients are inexpensive and require no special skills or tools. I hope you’ll consider giving this craft a try this season. I promise it will become a treasured new tradition for your home, just as it has become for mine. The process is simple. Use a paintbrush to coat the faux fruit with a layer of mod podge, covering it completely. While still wet, dip the fruit into the embossing powder to coat. Tap off any excess powder and allow to dry fully according to mod podge instructions. The powder will harden into a sugary coat once dry. For a polished finish, apply a second coat of mod podge over the top and let dry.
