Introduction: Fruit Hideout

Do you have small personal and/or valuable items that need to be kept safe, but you can't afford a safe or safety deposit box? Find the solution to your problem by cleverly hiding your belongings inside of fake fruit.

Step 1: Gather Your Belongings

For this tutorial, you will need the following items:

Fake fruit (Styrofoam)


Fruit Bowl

Glue Gun

Glue Sticks

Real Fruit

Step 2: Cutting the Fruit

Cut a hole through the bottom of the fruit. Apples and pears work best.

Step 3: Make the Fruit Hollow

You will need to hollow the fruit in order to fit your small personal items. Start by carefully twisting the knife to loosen up the Styrofoam. You can easily remove the Styrofoam using your hand.

Step 4: Place Your Belongings Inside the Fruit

Place your small valuable belongings inside the fake fruit.

Step 5: Gluing the Apple Back Together

Using a glue gun, carefully place a few drops of glue on the edge of where the fruit peel and Styrofoam meet. Then quickly place the piece that was removed in step 2.

Step 6: Finalizing Your Hideout

Start by placing a small (real) fruit inside of the fruit bowl. Then, place a small dot of glue and place the fake fruit on the glue. You can even add a sticker to make the apple seem more realistic. Continue to place real fruit around the fake apple.

Step 7: Your Personal Belongings Are Safe

Now you can leave your home and know that your personal belongings are safe because no thief will have the time to have a snack when their main priority is to take as much as they can in the least amount of time.
