Grab the attention of your guest with this simply adorable centerpiece! In this DIY project, we use fruit as a decorating opportunity, while leveraging the bouquet assembly of a local super market! This inexpensive project takes about 30 min of your time & roughly $15 from your budget!
Here’s what’s needed to get started: 1. Patriotic bouquet, 2. scissors, 3. blueberries (1 carton) and 4. raspberries (1 carton). Our steps are below… have fun!
1. Gather blue, white and red carnations. NOTE: We found our bouquet at Publix supermarket for $7.99.
2. Cut your stems, at an angle, for a desired length.
3. Add more color by layering with fruit. NOTE: To preserve the fruit life use a cylinder, inner vase, and insert the stems. In doing so, the fruit life is extended by not immersing in water.
4. Add water to desired level and your ready to display!
