Fruit Christmas Tree

Turn your favorite fruits into a juicy and healthy Christmas tree
Winter is a hard time for all fruit lovers. I am one of them so I know how hard is to find good, local and inexpensive fruits. The fact is that we need to eat vitamin, energy bombs, especially to survive cold, snowy days. As Christmas day is approaching fast, I assume it is a great idea to conjoin healthy food and some winter decoration. We have already featured edible Veggie Christmas Tree, and this one is as healthy as fruity!

Our tree is very easy to create, and you can eat every single part of it, so nothing is going to waste.Feel free to check out some more inspirations here. The project I’m gonna present is based on grapes mainly, but if you want, you can replace them with any other fruit, perhaps even more exotic ones. Of course, green fruits are the most similar to twigs, but you can use your imagination, and create something really crazy - who said Christmas must be about green and red!?

If I wanted to give you some advice, I would tell you to buy fruits not so ripe, so they stay fresh longer - if you manage to resist the temptation.

Please be brave and proudly show off with your fruit trees on our facebook timeline!
