This 3-D Christmas Tree Fruit Tray is over-the-top adorable!
This Edible Strawberry Tree is a three-dimensional fruit tray that is sure to delight your holiday guests! It looks impressive yet is easy to create.
In addition to strawberries and a starfruit, you’ll also need a foam cone (you can get this at a craft supply store) and a box of toothpicks.
Begin by washing your strawberries and removing the stems. Push a toothpick through the stem-end of each strawberry, leaving half of the toothpick exposed. Beginning at the bottom of the foam cone, affix the strawberries to it by pushing the exposed side of the toothpick in the foam. Continue all the way up and around the cone. Using a toothpick, secure a slice of starfruit to the top of the tree to create the tree topper. That’s it, you’re done and now you have a beautiful, vibrant centerpiece for your holiday table.
If you’d like, you can glue the foam base to a decorative charger. This will help keep the tree more stable as your guests pluck the strawberries out of the tree to eat. It also makes the tree look more substantial and festive. If you chose to do so, begin with this step and then affix the strawberries to the tree.
