DIY Sugar Fruit Centerpiece and Holiday Table


Top off your classic traditional holiday table with this gorgeous DIY sugar fruit centerpiece. Here's how you can make it yourself!

DIY Sugar Fruit Centrepiece


1 ½ cups epson salts
2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup of iridescent glitter


  1. Start with your center piece bowl so you know how much fruit to buy.
  2. Next fill the bowl with oasis and trim it to fit. Then take all of your ingredients and create mixture for the sugared look.
  3. Crack a window or go to your garage to spray fruit with spray adhesive. You should hold your fruit over a bowl so that the adhesive doesn’t end up on a table or your floor!
  4. Now you're ready to coat your fruit in mixture. Use a large brush to dab the fruit to get good coverage and then let the fruit dry for an hour.
  5. Now you're ready to hot glue gun your fruit on to the oasis.
  6. Lastly, add pine boughs and leaves around the exterior of bowl.

The DIY fits in perfectly on the traditional holiday table we pulled together, featuring a beautiful wood table, gorgeous red runner, gold and silver chargers, and simple white plates.
