A Fruitful DIY

Everytime I see one of those melon-a-riffic fruit bouquets that people often gift to the apple of their eye, I can’t help but wonder– how hard would it be to make one myself? So, the season being ripe with pineapples, berries, and melons, I decided to give it a go!

Below are the supplies I used to make my comestible creation, entitled “Friends Forever in Strawberry Fields Forever.” As for the process, it’s pretty self-explanatory thanks to the clip above. Though crafting the array resulted in slightly more disarray than I’d expected (beware: fruit juice may ooze everywhere!), it wasn’t a terribly trying endeavor. Next time you need a gift, ‘honey do’ try to make one yourself!


  • Fruit! (I used a pineapple, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, watermelon, and strawberries)
  • Wooden skewers
  • One big knife and one small knife
  • Sharp, metal cookie cutters
  • Cutting board
  • Large spoon

    this is so cute! i’ve received a ‘bouquet’, helped make one, and seen others try their hand at it. problem was that they all generally looked the same. your idea is great!! my creative juices are definitely flowing now! (umm..no pun intended.)

    this is art in motion! my grandma always used to cut a watermelon shell into the shape of a whale and fill it with balled honeydew

    I wonder if it will be easier to cut and the juices wouldn’t run as much if the fruit was a little frozen….I’ll try that. Thanks for the idea!
