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.

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
