fruits that flower

You will need fresh pineapple, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes, a flower cookie cutter, a melon baller, bamboo skewers, and some floral foam

Cut up pineapple into 1/2 inch thick slices.

Using the cookie cutter, press each slice of pineapple and cut out a flower of pineapple.

Using the melon baller, scoop out one ball of cantaloupe for every 2 pineapple flowers. Cut the cantaloupe ball in half and lay the flat side of one half against one pineapple flower.

Take each pineapple flower and stick a bamboo skewer through the center. Make sure your skewer pokes through the pineapple about 1/2 inch and stick that part of the skewer onto a cantaloupe ball, make sure not to let the skewer stick out the other end of the cantaloupe ball. Do this for each pineapple flower.

Take each strawberry and stick a bamboo skewer into the top of it, but don't let the skewer poke out the other side.

Take a bamboo skewer and stick it through about 6 grapes. When you stick one grape on, slide it down to make room for the next one. Repeat this until your last grape. Make sure that the skewer doesn't stick out of the last grape (the one on top). Then slide each grape up the skewer until they touch the grape just above it.

Put your floral foam into a vase. Place each skewer into the foam at various angles.
