Crafts Class: Festive Spring and Easter Decor Projects

Fruitful Vase

This centerpiece sings spring! Fill a cored melon with pale yellow roses -- or, for a fresh presentation, try daffodils or tulips. Melons not available at your local grocer in early spring? Fill your favorite vase with small fruits or berries, add water and insert a bouquet of flowers.

What you'll need:

  • Mini watermelon
  • Flowers of your choice
  • Knife or scissors
  • Water (if needed)


This is one of those quick fixes for a party (centerpiece in a snap!) that is always a delightful addition to your table. Core a hole in your melon, fill with water and insert flower stems '- the fruit holds enough water to keep the flowers happy for days! All you need to do is decide which type of flowers you'd like to add, and you're just minutes away from having a fabulous centerpiece. Here are just a handful of other ways fruits and flowers can mingle:

  • Limes stacked inside a clear vase with tulips spilling out of the top
  • Clumps of ripe grapes dripping over the edge of a pretty pitcher '- just add water and a bouquet of flowers!
  • Cranberries floating in a glass vase of long-stemmed flowers... everyone loves sweet and sour
