Edible Fruit Arrangement

This picture below is of my friends, Kara and Justin. Justin made this Edible Fruit Arrangement for Kara at Christmas time.

I think the time he spent on it says LOVE big time!

So I thought maybe some of you ladies might want to make one for your hubby, children or for a friend. You will love this edible fruit arrangement idea. It's perfect for holidays, birthdays, baby showers, or just to say I love you. #WomenLivingWell #ediblearrangement #ediblegiftsJustin explained his process step by step:

“I used watermelon, red grapes, pineapple, cantaloupe, and honeydew. The kitchen tools included a standard paring knife, cookie cutters, a crinkle cutter and melon ball-er.

The base that the wooden skewers went into was a chunk of watermelon. Other suggestions included; a head of lettuce for clear bowls or for solid bowls you could use homemade play-do or one of the standard green foam floral pieces. The floral piece if used should be covered in plastic wrap first to keep the food from touching it.

The filler pieces between the fruit could be anything from fresh parsley to green or red leaf lettuce. I used the pieces off the top of my pineapple to keep from buying more product that was just filler anyway and wouldn’t be eaten.

I believe the biggest trick to getting this to work well was to use cookie cutters that were thick and had no top handle on them so that the cookie cutter could be pushed all the way through the fruit. The thickness helped when putting the fruit on the skewer, the thin pieces break easily especially the pineapple.

Some arrangements use strawberries and other fruits and dip them in chocolate which looks nice. This project does take some time.

I went to the Edible Arrangements website that Justin suggested and the Valentine Arrangements are adorable! These would be fun for Easter or a summer picnic too!

Walk with the King!


  1. Really beautiful. I haven't done an edible fruit creation before. I am sure my daughter would really enjoy doing this with me.

  2. Thanks for sharing this with us! I've seen the Edible Arrangements but never thought of trying to make one at home!

  3. They can make the most awesome arrangements! I have sent several as gifts before. Come join me for Crock Pot Wednesday and the February giveaway.

  4. I have seen these before, but never considered making one myself. Well, that has all changed now! Thanks for your great posting. ~

  5. That is very impressive indeed! My husband is telling me that those are very expensive to buy. How cool that Justin made it himself! Thanks for sharing, and thank you for the Tasty Tuesday Info- I will check it out some more!

  6. Hi! Just saw this on Pinterest and thought I’d weigh in with what I know! I used to work for Edible Arrangements and what we used as the base was the exact same material as pool noodles! Just cut it into whatever sized pieces you need to fill in the basket, bowl or cup you’re using, then cover with kale. We used special plastic skewers that had a small “shelf” on them to keep the fruit from sliding down, but I’m sure that regular skewers would work just fine. Also, there was nothing fancy to the chocolate we used, just Hershey’s chips!
