Cosmic Crisp® Apple Basket Bouquet


  • Cosmic Crisp® apples
  • Sharp knife
  • Melon baller
  • 2 yards of thin gingham ribbon (between ½” and 1” wide)
  • Short, flat-headed straight pins (about 1” long)
  • Spring flowers, such as tulips, hyacinths and ranunculus
  • Scissors


A fun craft for the kids, these sweet apple “baskets” are filled with fragrant spring flowers to delight lucky recipients.

  1. Using a sharp knife, cut off the top inch of each Cosmic Crisp®.
  2. Using the melon baller, hollow out the apples, leaving the walls at least ½” thick.
  3. Wrap the ribbon around the bottom and up the sides of the apples, leaving about 16” of length on either end so that it’s long enough to tie a bow. Secure the ribbon by inserting the straight pins into the sides of the apples.
  4. Tie the ribbon in a simple bow to make the basket handle. Adjust the length as needed.
  5. Trim flowers to fit inside and fill the apples. Add water for the flowers before decorating.
