{ Framed Fruit - Dollar Tree Style }

Well if any of you know me AT ALL, you know I love a bargain and when I saw The Happy Homebody frame out a pear I pretty much knew my kitchen needed something similar. 
So I ran to my local Dollar Tree and found a styrofoam lemon and used one of my clearance frames from Wally World, plus some really old card stock from my day's of 8 1/2x11 scrap-booking.
 I used my handsaw to cut them in half, then broke out my trusty glue gun and glued those babies onto the card stock & there you have it cute kitchen decor! 
I mean seriously it's sooooo flipping cute & e.a.s.y.!!
Tally for Lemon Art $3.75
Then while looking at lemons this apple caught my eye as well as this frame, total cost for this baby $2.25. I know they are nothing fan-ta-bulous but they add a little bit of cheeriness to my very blah kitchen.  
I used embossed dot card stock on both displays, which I will probably replace with some fabulous paper one of these days but I'll have to go out of town to find some.. :)
