  • 1 large apple
  • 1 long straight carrot

Directions

  1. Cut off the base of the apple to create a stable flat base
  2. Use a knife or an apple corer to create a hole in the top of the apple and insert the carrot – this carrot will act as the trunk or central part of the Christmas tree
  3. Insert toothpicks evenly all over the apple and the carrot – these toothpicks will act as the boughs of the Christmas tree
  4. Using the rockmelon, cut one slice into the shape of a star and cut the rest of the rockmelon into small triangles
  5. Pin all the pieces of fruit to the toothpicks. Space colours evenly over the tree
  6. Pin rockmelon star to the top of the tree

Tips

If you have a melon ball utensil, cut rockmelon into balls instead of triangles
