DIY Fruit Slice Shelf

I said a couple weeks ago over on Snapchat that my next major project is the kid’s playroom. Snapchat showed the reason why- it is a disorganized mess of toys!  The room is getting a much needed complete makeover, but in the meantime I have a mini DIY to share that will be used in the girl’s kitchen.
The DIY is inspired by a shelf I found on Pinterest– and no longer available.  I liked it so much I decided to DIY it!

Wooden Circle Cut in two halves (I got mine at Home Depot, but they do not have the link available online for it)
Craft Paint
Paint brushes
Scrap wood
6 screws (3 screws for each shelf) 
4 Sawtooth hangers (2 for each shelf)

Cut your wooden circle in half, if you do not have a saw, Home Depot will make cuts for you.  Sand the edges where the cut was made.

Paint your desired fruit- I decided on a watermelon and pink grapefruit or you can call it pink lemonade- as long as it is pink, lol.  A rainbow would be a cute non-fruit option!
I used scrap wood to save money (home improvement stores usually have a ton for cheap, I got mine for $2) I cut it down to 17 inches and 3/4 (the length of the top of the circle)  and drilled it to the top using 3 screws.
P.S.- the picture shows only 2 screws, but then I realized I needed 3, so ignore the photo in this case 😉 
Attach sawtooth hangers to back of shelf using your hammer. 

Two shelves for less than $15? I am in! 

The girls love them, they are not hanging in playroom yet because I have painting to do on walls first, but they cannot wait.
