Fruit Christmas Tree

Fruit Christmas Tree

For this healthy Christmas food fruit tree, I used green and purple grapes for most of the garland, cantaloupe stars and watermelon balls, and some kiwi for accents and color. I wanted to punctuated the pine tree shape, so I used Clementine orange wedges (Cuties brand). That’s about it! Pretty and healthy

Ingredients:

1 styrofoam cone (small or medium size) from your local craft store. (I got mine from Michaels).
Toothpicks
Cookie cutters with various shapes (I used a gingerbread-man shaped and a star shaped cutter - similar to these)
Assorted fruits - I used  green grapes, strawberries, kiwis, apricots, orange slices and Melon.
Cilantro garnish.

Directions:
  1. 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.
  2. Using the cookie cutters create various shapes out of the melon slices.
  3. 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).
  4. Continue building the tree as dense as you want!
  5. Use cilantro leaves as grass garnish.
  6. Enjoy your new edible fruit tree!!
