How to Do a Fruit Bouquet With a Turkey

Overview

Fruit bouquets are a creative gift idea for holidays, hospital visits and business gifts. When creating a fruit bouquet, customization and personal touches truly define the basket's appearance. For best results, keep this basket refrigerated until it is time to give it away.

Step 1

Place the florist foam in the bottom of the cornucopia. Press down firmly until the foam is snugly inside.

Step 2

Stick the dowels into the apples and corn and set aside.

Step 3

Place the pumpkin in the cornucopia as the centerpiece and arrange the apples and corn around it poking the dowels into the foam. Stuff some hay or moss into the crevices for decoration. Pour the cranberries into the cornucopia and place the Turkey in a position toward the top of the basket.

Step 4

Carefully wrap the fruit bouquet in the shrink wrap bag and tie closed. Use a hairdryer to shrink the plastic so that it snugly fits around the basket.

Step 5

Tie the decorative bow onto the top of the basket and deliver the fruit bouquet.
