Today is the last post of a series that I have been doing with the Marzetti® brand. I have been sharing fun creations all made from fruits or vegetables. Today’s is Uncle Sam’s Hat made from produce.
What I have for you in this post is perfect to use at your upcoming 4th of July celebration. It would be the most amazing centerpiece on your serving table.
It is Uncle Sam’s Hat made mainly out of fruit along with some asparagus and mint leaves. I love the idea of having these fun creations at parties. They will most definitely turn into a conversation piece for your guests. If you want to see the other items I have shared before, here is where you can find them – robot, handbag with shoes, and flower vase.
Uncle Sam’s Hat made from produce
Since the hat is mainly fruit, it is perfect to serve along with a beautiful colorful tray of fruit along with Marzetti® Cream Cheese Fruit Dip. It adds just a little extra sweetness to whatever fruit you serve.

With what I purchased to make Uncle Sam’s Hat, I had enough fruit left over to make the fruit tray shown in the picture below. So not only do you get a great center piece but you also get food for your celebration too!
Now, starfruit is what is supposed to be used to make the stars on the hat. I had a hard time finding starfruit, so I used pineapple instead and cut the stars out using a medium sized metal star cookie cutter that I picked up at my local craft store. I found a set of 3 for $4.
One other thing to note is that dental grip was suggested to secure the blueberries on Uncle Sam’s Hat. This didn’t work so well for me, so I ended up just securing them to the hat using toothpicks that I broke in half.
