Equipment

  • Crafting Cone - I used the 3.8 in x 11.9 in
  • Toothpicks

Ingredients
  

  • Florida Strawberries
  • Romaine lettuce or another leafy green

Instructions
 

  • Prep the strawberries - rinse and allow to dry thoroughly.
  • Unwrap the packaging from the crafting cone.
  • Cut the center out of the romaine (the white part). That way you are left with the tender leafy part.
  • Wrap the pieces of lettuce around the cone. I started front right to left and used a toothpick to hold the ends in place.

  • Once the cone is covered in the lettuce, start adding toothpicks. We spaced ours about 1 in apart and worked in a circular direction from bottom to top.
  • Once the toothpicks are in, start adding the prepared strawberries. Be careful not to poke the toothpick all the way through the strawberry.
  • Fill in any empty spots with extra toothpicks and strawberries.
  • I used Pearl Strawberries for the top of my Strawberry Christmas Tree.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
  • As friends and family eat the strawberries from your tree, be sure to replace them!
