DIY Fruit Bouquet

Fruit Basket
Tick-tock, tick-tock... do you hear that?  Halloween is getting SO CLOSE!  I'm looking forward to the parties coming this weekend and the actual trick-or-treating next week.  I'm also excited to be teaming up with Edible Arrangements® today to turn my little Poesy into a fruit bouquet just in time for Halloween!  Making this costume was super easy and super fun, so let me take you through the steps!

Fruit Basket
First, I cut out felt shapes for the strawberries, honey dew, and chocolate covered strawberries, bats, and ghosts.  Since I wanted an extra pop of color for the cantaloupe, I used a printed fabric and glued it onto some poster board so it would stay upright.

I used some craft glue and yarn to give the chocolate strawberries a little more dimension and detail.  Once the glue dried I simply trimmed the edges.

When I finished cutting all of my shapes, I glued them together to make the arrangement.  Once the glue dried for this step, I safety pinned the fruit to one of Poesy's tee shirts and threw together some adorable accessories (including a little felt cut-out for her strawberry hat) to complete this simple and fun costume!

Who could ask for a better costume model, right?  Poesy had a blast dressing up and having her picture taken.

Edible Arrangements® is typically my favorite way to tell someone "thank you" or "I'm thinking of you" but their bouquets and arrangements are also great for parties... such as a Halloween get together!  Check out their site to see all of the delicious things they offer!
