I love the fresh produce that comes with summer. We're trying to eat healthier what better way to do it than having your fruit right on the counter to grab for snacks or even just remember what you have to work with. I have done a bowl in the past, but I wanted a fruit stand that could hold a lot and also add some color and personality to my kitchen.
I love how it turned out, but just in case it is not your style, I have five others for you to choose from! This idea was actually born from a late night snack run with my roommates during Breathing Space Blogger Retreat. We ran to the grocery store, saw these adorable polka dot dishes and thought it might be fun to make stands with them. I love how each bloggers personality shows through a little differently.

Want a mini how to?
Spray paint your candlesticks using multiple light coats and letting it dry between coats. Glue it all together with E-6000 making sure everything is centered over each other. Let it dry.
As you can see I put the top candle stick upside down. It fit perfectly within the ridges of the bowl and then left more room on the small plate for fruit or goodies. I decided on a fruit stand because it's not often that I need a whole display of goodies and it was way to cute to hide in a cupboard. I love how it adds a natural pop of color to my space.
It would also be super cute for chips or veggies and dip! Oooh, or crackers and an assortment of cheese cubes in the top!
