Looking for a fun new healthy tradition for the holidays? Try a fruit filled edible wreath for your holiday centerpiece! This wreath serves two purposes as both a beautiful centerpiece and a healthy dessert! Check out our step-by-step instructions on our website and create your own! We’d love to see your edible wreath or edible holiday tree! Be sure to share your creation with us on social media!
Here’s what you need:
- 1x foam wreath shape
- 2 pints strawberries
- 3 pounds green grapes
- 1/2 pint blueberries
- 15-20 cherries
- Artificial holly (optional: you can use it to fill any gaps in your wreath after construction)
You can use other fruit combinations if you prefer, but make sure to choose fruit that holds together and won’t discolor if cut. We have used watermelon cut with mini shape cutters before and both worked well. Apple, pear, stone fruits and oranges don’t work well, so avoid them.
Step 1: Rinse and thoroughly dry all fruit.
Step 2: Insert tooth picks randomly around the wreath. Leave around 1cm sticking up. You don’t need to totally fill the wreath, just aim for 20-30 toothpicks to start with.
Step 3: Starting with the largest fruit (strawberries if you are using them), stick the fruit onto the toothpicks around the wreath.
Step 4: Continue to fill the wreath with the larger fruits (cherries, grapes etc), adding toothpicks as needed.
Step 5: Once you are left with only smaller gaps, fill them with smaller pieces of fruit such as blueberries or small grapes.
Step 6: Continue to add toothpicks and fruit until you are happy with the coverage of the wreath.
Step 7: Refrigerate until ready to serve. Yum!
