How to Make a Floral Centerpiece With Edible Grape Skewers
utility or craft knife
flowers of your choice (we used hydrangea and lilies)
grapes of your choice (white, red or black)
12 wooden skewers
Create a Color Scheme
You can use green, red or purple (black) grapes for this project. Once the color of grapes has been selected, choose flowers with similar colors to coordinate. Violet hydrangea and lilac lilies are excellent choices for pairing with red or purple grapes.
Prep Floral Foam
Use measuring tape to determine the width of the urn; cut floral foam to size with a utility knife (Image 1). Place cut foam in a dish of water and leave it to soak till saturated (Image 2).
Add Grapes to Skewers
Slide grapes onto skewers, being sure to leave enough of the skewer’s end uncovered so you can anchor it in the foam.
Place soaked foam in urn; it should fit snugly enough that a few inches of foam is visible above the top of the urn. Begin adding flowers to arrangement, starting at the bottom (Image 1) and working your way up to the top (Image 2).
Insert all grape skewers into the exposed floral foam along the top of the urn (Image 1). Make sure they’re placed closely enough together to mask any of the green foam peeking through (Image 2).
