How to make:

  1. Cut floral foam so that it fits very snugly into the vase. The floral foam should be an inch or so below the top so that it is not visible. You can also fill with paper, black beans, or popcorn to cover the floral foam.
  2. For each skewer, start by sticking a piece of fruit on the top to cover the top of the skewer (pointy side down).
  3. Thread your fruit from the bottom up onto the skewer in fun patters alternating the colors and fruits.
