Fruit Christmas Tree


I saw this and had to share! An adorable, edible tree that would make a great centerpiece!

Material:
1 styrofoam cone (small or medium size)
Toothpicks
Cookie cutters with various shapes (I used a gingerbread-man shaped and a star shaped cutter)
Assorted fruits – I used green and black grapes, strawberries, kiwis, dried cranberries and a honeydew melon.

Cilantro garnish.
Steps:

My styrofoam cone was green in color, if you only have a white one then I suppose you could drape some green paper on a white cone or attach fruits very densely so it resembles more like a tree trunk.
Using the cookie cutters create various shapes out of the melon slices.
Attach toothpicks to the styrofoam cone. Attach one piece each of a fruit to a toothpick. (Think free-form; as the tree starts building you will know more about which fruit combinations are looking better and how densely packed you want your tree to be).
Continue building the tree as dense as you want!
Use cilantro leaves as grass garnish.
Enjoy your new edible fruit tree!!
