  • 1 can of pineapple chunks
  • ½ watermelon
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • Red grapes
  • Green grapes
  • 1 pear, not green
  • 4 small or medium-sized red apples
  • Googly eyes or marshmallow with olives
  • 2 cheese blocks

You’ll also need:

  • Skewers or toothpicks

Vanilla fruit dip:

  • 1 (8 ounces) package of cream cheese
  • 1 (3.4 ounces) package of vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (8 ounces) container of whipped topping


Step 1

Chop the fruits and cheese into bite-sized cube pieces except for the grapes and pear, then decore, and slice the apple into wedges. Insert toothpicks at the bottom of the apple wedges, then with the pointed end of the skewer facing down, insert the green grape all the way up followed by a fruit of your choice, a red grape, and another fruit of your choice. Repeat the order until halfway done, then for the next skewer, alternate the cheese cubes and grapes, and then repeat for the rest of the skewers alternately.


Step 2

Once done, position the pumpkin on the surface so that it is standing sideways and the bottom is facing the front, then insert the apple wedges around and all the way to the other side of the pumpkin like a fan, and insert the skewered fruit and cheese alternately at the back of the apple wedges. Slice one side of the pear’s wide part to flatten it, then place the pear wide side up, and stick it to the pumpkin using toothpicks for the turkey’s head. Add the googly eyes to the pear using buttercream or toothpicks, then insert a chunk of pineapple at the center for the nose, and an apple wedge for the snood.
