Christmas is right around the corner, and if you haven’t sorted your table centrepiece yet and have the time to make your own, this blog is perfect for you. Have a go at making your own Christmas decorations. Start by spraying your own fruit and create homemade festive centrepieces at the same time. Because you’ll be using real fruit to create your display, it’s best to buy the fruit no more than a week before Christmas Day so it stays fresh. It’s so easy to make, we’ll show you how…

How to make your own Christmas decorations

How it’s done

  1. Choose your fruit; apples, pears, oranges and pomegranates are perfect, but if you’re after a showstopper display – a pineapple is ideal.
  2. Pop the fruit in a cardboard box outdoors (the cardboard box will catch the over spray) and apply a fine spray to each piece. Leave to dry.
  3. Try and forage for some holly, leaves and pine cones for a rustic touch. Spray them in the same way and leave them to dry.

How to spray fruit

Top tip: Get the kids involved and go on a foraging mission to add the rustic finishing touches such as pine cones, leaves and holly.

Now your dazzling creations are complete, all that’s left to do is give them a home. We’ve used our gorgeous swirl bowl and glass cake stand to display the fruit. Put your display in the middle of the table and voila!
