This post contains affiliate links, so maybe if you buy some fruit picks, I might be able to one day send my kid to college.

I’ve been trying to up my lunchbox game these days, and have gone the way of the bento box.  It has been a great creative outlet, and a way to ensure a balanced, well-proportioned meal.  One of my favorite bento items is a mini fruit kabob.  It’s basically food on a stick, and anything on a stick is awesome in this household.  But it’s hard to find really cute fruit picks.  So, I made my own.  This is a quick, five-minute craft that is totally satisfying and loads of long-term fun.

Here’s what you need.
1) Plastic food picks.  I got mine from Dollar Tree, but you can order a bunch off Amazon too.
2) Fun buttons.  I got mine at Joann’s, but any fun fabric store will have a huge selection.
3) Mini glue gun.
4) Flush cutting pliers (I bet you have a pair of these somewhere.)

Using the pliers, snip the backs off all the buttons.

Then…yep, you guessed it…use the glue gun and glue the de-buttoned buttons to the food picks.  Let dry and you’re good to go!
