DIY Fruit Stand


Super simple and super cheap!!  For $5 at the Dollar Store, I whipped this out in about 5 minutes.  Now I have a cute little spot to set all my fruit, without my bananas always getting overripe.  I have seen these all over Pinterest, and finally got around to making one of my own.  So simple, and super inexpensive.  Would be a cute way to display cupcakes, or cookies as well.  Or even use as a veggie tray!

Glue candle stick to the top of largest plate.  Glue the other candle stick to the bottom of bowl.  Attach layers together on middle plate.


Easy peasy!!
