Christmas Tree

Christmas is just round the corner! How about setting up some unconventional Christmas trees with the kids and eating them too? Here are three edible Christmas tree craft ideas for a fun and fruitful time together:

Watermelon

Here’s how:

  1. Slice the watermelon into the usual triangular wedges.
  2. Cut away part of the rind at the bottom and leave a stump in the middle.
  3. To make them stand, cut off part of the stump to make the base straight.
  4. Voila, you have sweet little red trees enough to plant an enchanting forest.
  5. Decorate with green grapes at the bottom to give the grassy effect and slice some starfruit for a starry, starry night.

Here’s how:

  1. Remove the skin of the green kiwi fruit.
  2. Slice and arrange them as ‘leaves’ into a tree on a plate.
  3. Place some sliced starfruits. Don’t forget the star at the top of the tree.
  4. Add on raspberries, blueberries or small grapes as ‘decorations’.

Fruitful Christmas Tree

 

Here’s how:

  1. Pluck some grapes, chop up some honeydew or green apples into squares and set aside some strawberries. You can also use other fruits to make it bright and colourful.
  2. The base of the internal core structure is an apple. Slice off the top and bottom of the apple so it sits firmly on a plate.
  3. Place a carrot on top of the apple and secure it with toothpicks.
  4. Poke some toothpicks at intervals throughout the internal core, i.e. the carrot and the apple.
  5. Attach the other fruits onto the toothpicks from the bottom up.
  6. Garnish the bottom with some parsley.
  7. Shape a honeydew into a star and place it at the top and you’ll get a 3D fruity Christmas tree that’s not only crunchy but looks great as a centrepiece!

 

 

Have ‘berry’ fun and fruitful Christmas tree making time!
