Strawberry Tree How-To
What you need:
- Foam Cone (Can be found at any craft store. Kinda spendy though, so grab your 50% off coupon before you head over! Also, make sure you measure your base and get a cylinder that will fit on top)
- Plastic wrap (when I make this again, I will purchase red instead of using clear)
- 4lbs Strawberries
- Additional berries of your choice
Let's get started!
Wrap your cone with plastic wrap and secure to base. The cone will get pretty heavy with all of the berries stuck into it, so make sure it is securely attached.
Keep inserting the toothpicks into the foam and securing strawberries in a circular pattern up the cone. Try to stagger the berries to prevent bare spots.
There will be bare spots...trust me...so have a different kind of berry (smaller is better-I used blackberries) to fill in. After you have filled in the larger bare spots, go back around and fill any other areas with mint leaves.
Voila! A gorgeous centerpiece for your next party. Perhaps melt a bowl of chocolate for your guests to dip their strawberries in for an added touch!
