There are so many amazing ways you can make your very own fruit arrangement for your home that fits your style.
Of course, adding a touch of glitter makes everything look even more fabulous.
Since the days are getting colder, it’s nice to brighten up the feel of your home with DIY glittered pieces, and they look beautiful.
We ventured out to our favorite Dollar Tree and picked up just a few items to make this gorgeous centerpiece that will be perfect for fruit arrangement that would work Christmas, New Years and everyday décor.
Best of all this entire project cost $5 and most supplies were purchased from Dollar Tree. Other supplies were purchased at Michaels.
The best part is that it just doesn’t have to be for the fall and you don’t have to choose one color!
Mix and match the colors to the season you want, tastes and decor!
Enjoy this fun and easy tutorial.

Mix up your colors and glitters. Be creative!
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.
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 is still pretty!
It just depends on what look you are going for.
This project is so easy and really looks beautiful in any home.
Consider highlighting it in your entryway, kitchen table, mantle, bathroom or even your office.
And really, this is just the beginning of what can be painted and glittered for the holidays! Let your imagination run wild!
