It's time consuming and it ends up being a bit of money (fruit is expensive, and you may have to buy the other items if you don't have them on hand), I understand why these things are so expensive to buy now! But, makes a great gift if the receiver likes fruit! My dance instructor was trying to eat healthy and loose weight, so instead of making a cake to bring to class, I made a fruit bouquet. I used various fruits, a ceramic pot for a plant, a foam block, saran wrap, cellophane, a flower cookie cutter, wooden skewers, and chocolate.

I looked at a picture of an edible arrangement to copy. I wrapped the foam block in saran wrap and put it in the pot so the dust wouldn't get on the fruit. I cut the pineapple with the cookie cutter (the middle of the flower is the hard core), and dipped a few strawberries in chocolate. Then i threaded the fruit on the skewers and stuck them into the foam. I wrapped the whole thing in cellophane for gifting, but I took pictures before wrapping

My youngest son LOVES fruit so I bought him one just like this and they ARE expensive. Yours turned out just as nice as the one I bought! Great job!

Thanks ladies!

It was fun to do! And although I did spend a good amount of money on fruit, I did have a lot of fruit left over so it is definitely worth it to make your own if you have free time and patience!
