Holiday Centerpiece with Strawberries

_dsc0756_dsc0756This past week I got my craft on with strawberries!  Yes, strawberries.

Normally strawberries may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of getting crafty.  But when Driscoll invited me to be part of their  Virtual Holiday Crafting event I couldn’t turn down the opportunity or the challenge.

I made a trip to Michaels to pick up a few craft supplies including a Styrofoam tree, some colored balls, ribbon and a metal pail.  I picked up my strawberries at the grocery store and grabbed some toothpicks too.

I decided to create a fun and edible holiday centerpiece with strawberries  for the dinner table.  How fun is that – you can eat the decorations!

I placed the Styrofoam into the metal bucket.  My Styrofoam measured about 5 x 18 inches.  I just pushed it down into the bucket until it was nice a snug.   I then used toothpicks to secure the strawberries to the foam.

Start with your largest berries and use those around the bottom.

Don’t worry about any spaces you may have – that is where those little colored foam balls will come in handy.  I just used toothpicks to secure them in between the berries to fill in the spaces.

As you know my word of the season is Joy so I cut out some vinyl letters with my Silhouette Cameo and put them on the metal container.

A little polka dot ribbon around the container was the finishing touch.

Totally loving it as a centerpiece for the dining room table.  Thinking a bowl of melted chocolate next to it and you have dessert already on the table.  Just pull the strawberries off and dip away!  Talk about multi-purpose!!
