The other night my daughter had a her yearly Holiday Party for color guard. When she told me we had been picked to bring fruit I thought to myself how in the heck am I going to make that fun. First, I thought of a vegetable/fruit tray in the shape of a tree. I looked around on Pinterest. Fiddled over a few ideas until we came to a wreath or a tree. We ended up picking the Christmas Fruit Tree. I thought I would share the DIY here with you.
I ended up making it at the party. We bought raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and grapes. The rest of the fruit was brought by others for the party and we just placed it around the tree. This project doesn’t take much to make it.
CHRISTMAS FRUIT TREE DIY:
- strawberries; 1 box
- raspberries; 1 box
- blackberries; 1 box
- 1 lb of green grapes
- styrofoam tree
- 1 wood star
- christmas platter
Wash all fruit. Place foam tree on platter. Using toothpicks place them all around the tree. Insert them at an angle. Place fruit on toothpicks until the entire tree is covered with fruit. You I alternate the fruit and use the grapes as the main filler. Put two toothpicks at the top and place the star in between it. Put any leftover fruit all around the base of the tree.
The girls were in amazement as my daughter and I put it together. I asked her after the party if they finished off the tree and she said yes it was all gone. It was exciting to hear that. I also was excited that my daughter helped me and thought it was such a cute idea. I think her and I will have to make a wreath for home for Christmas to share with the family. Such an adorable project!
