Step 1: Paint

Depending how much cover you would like to see on your faux fruit arrangement you can spray paint them in your choice of silver or gold to cover the natural shades that will peek through the glitter.

This step is totally optional but I highly recommend it.

Head outside in an open area and spray paint the fruit covering all sides top and bottom including the stems.

Allow it to dry for a few minutes.

Step 2: Apply Modge Podge & Glitter

After the paint has dried, apply a generous amount of Modge Podge with a paint or foam brush covering the entire area of the fruit focusing on one piece at a time.

Next lay your fruit on a plate or napkin and pour a generous amount of glitter all over your fruit.

Once you’ve covered your fruit, pour the excess glitter back into the container and start the next piece of fruit.

This step will help save you time and money by saving the glitter just in case a breeze comes by.

Make sure you have enough fruit to fill your fruit arrangement, unless you are going to add other decorations like greenery, acorns, etc.

Step 3: Continue With The Next Pieces

Here’s what an apple looked like that I did not spray paint first.

Can you see the green color peeking through? It will still be so pretty for this fruit arrangement.

It just depends on what look you are going for.
