Simple Plastic Fall Fruit Makeover


Hello again friends. I hope your week is off to a great start. I’m excited to be joining my friend Krista on our very first Season of Simplicity fall series. Today we’re sharing fall crafts and I’m looking forward to seeing what my
friends have in store. Because I’ve been super busy these couple of weeks and I’m not on full on fall mode just yet, I decided to keep my craft super, duper simple and create more of a transitional centerpiece.

I picked up some plastic fruits from Michaels along with some spray paint and converted these colorful plastic fruits and pumpkins into neutral pretties.
plasticfruitmakeover-2 I also painted the stem gold just for a little touch of fun. :)



applepierecipeprintable-14 I really like how they turned out and I already have plans to use them as a centerpiece this fall.


Even though I’m not too sure what my fall colors will be this fall, I’m thinking of a more traditional palette which might include navy blue or black. I’m still debating.
I am sad to see summer come to an end but working on this little craft made me super excited about the upcoming season.

Are you already in fall mode?  Well, even if you’re not, here are some beautiful crafts to get your creativity going.

Thank you so much for stopping by again. See you very soon. xo

    Just want to let you know – I have a real girl crush on you! LOL! Seriously, how do you come up with these ideas. I was at Michael’s Saturday and saw the bag ‘o fruit shown here and never in my wildest imaginings would I have thought of this idea. Brilliant! Have a great week.

    Hey Lucy, you’re a girl after my own heart. I’ve been decorating for Fall with a neutral palette for the last 3 years and I love it! Your lovely and whimsical white fruit is delightful, I am SO copying you on this one. I’m not quite ready to “Fall” the entire house, but after Labor Day, I like to put a couple of transitional pieces in the dining room and kitchen. Thanks for sharing your creativity!
