Here is what Mary had to say:

“Hi Nita!

I carved my 1st ever basket weave for a special event last night & wanted to share some photos with you. They were a huge success & I received so many wonderful comments on them.

I made the leaves from finely sliced jicama & used food coloring to “paint” the leaves – this added to the whole fall presentation. The melons also have a hint of spray food coloring to enhance the over all appearance.

Thank you for such wonderful instructional videos!

Here’s how Mary’s whole fruit table layout looked. Isn’t it pretty. She had 3 different woven look Autumn fruit baskets on her table. Notice how Mary arranged the fruit at many different levels to give it great eye appeal.

Here’s closer look at another of Mary’s carved fruit baskets filled with blueberries.

Creating the Autumn colors

As you can see, Mary “painted” her leaves with fall colors using food coloring and added a bit of spray food coloring to the bowls themselves to get this pretty Autumn look.
