Nothing says Halloween quite like a carved pumpkin! October is definitely the month of the pumpkin, but that doesn’t mean the other foods in the Produce Department should be left out! Carrots, onions, radishes, watermelons, apples, and oranges, are just some of the foods that can be carved into beautiful works of art. With just one knife, you can create amazing patterns, shapes, animals, words, flowers and so much more! You are only limited by your imagination.
But since this is a flower blog, we are only going to focus only on carving flowers, of course! The finished flowers can then be used a fun, edible garnish or table centerpiece! Not only will the flowers add beauty and colour to your home, they will definitely impress your guests! And the best part is that you don’t necessarily have to go out to buy supplies. You just need a knife and some vegetables to get started. Take a look at your fridge and see what’s there.
Here are some video tutorials on how to carve fruit and vegetable flowers:
