I bought a big bag of life sized plastic fruit from amazon here

Then I hot glued two apples onto two of Henry’s heavy blocks (shhhh let’s hope he doesn’t notice they’re missing!)

Spray paint and let dry!



Simple and cute tutorial. Those are plastic apple. Why didn’t I think of that? Thanks for sharing Liz!

Wow, such a great and simple DIY. Will definitely be making these in the future for our little one 🙂
