If you are blessed enough to get fruit trees in your garden, why not use the produce in these arts and crafts ideas. If you don't have a garden, you can still try these projects with fruit purchased in your nearby store.

Everybody knows what a toffee apple appears like and little ones love them at Halloween. They are very simple to make at home and are possibly more attractive than those bought at the store. Combine some sugar, butter, water and a bit of vinegar in a pan and heat to 290F. Buy some lolly sticks and put one through the core of each apple. Dip the apple in the mixture and let to set. They will shortly become hard.

If you love apples but don't prefer to cover them in toffee you can use them as candle stands to beautify the table for a summer barbeque. Create a hole in the top of the apple and insert a small candle. Put a few of these apples into a dish half filled with water. Add some petals and leaves for a wonderful decoration. When the sun goes down, light the candles to yield a wonderful ambiance. The children may eat the apples the next day or utilize them in other arts and crafts ideas.

If you have a sweet tooth, dry a few fruit pieces in a warm oven. You can choose apples, mangos, apricots or oranges. When the fruit has dried up, dip in melted chocolate for a delicious treat.

If you don't like to add on the pounds but want to use your produce why not turn it into potpourri and use it to keep your linens clean. Most fruits can be dried in an oven using a low heat. Citrus fruits work very well as they emit a lovely odor. There are a lot of arts and crafts ideas to use, you will never throw away your garden produce again
