The wonderful and festive color of a fresh pomegranate lends itself beautifully to seasonal decorations. A classic centerpiece, garland, wreath or door swag adorned with pomegranates makes a stunning and sophisticated decoration during the holidays. When decorating, select pomegranates by color, size and general appearance.

How to Polish Pomegranates
Enhance the color and textured surface of a pomegranate by applying a light coat of cooking oil to the surface. Remove any excess with a paper towel and buff the surface until it shines.

How to Make Pomegranates Sparkle
To add festive sparkle without losing the beautiful burgundy color, dust the untreated surface of a pomegranate with gold or silver spray glitter to add sheen to the surface and dress up the fruit for the holidays. If you can’t find spray glitter in craft stores, try glitter hairspray from a beauty supply store.

(Note: If you have already polished the surface of the pomegranate with oil, do not try to add glitter, as it will not adhere to the oiled surface.)

How to Dry Pomegranates
Dried whole pomegranates can last for many months and make beautiful year-round decorations. To dry whole pomegranates, select fruit without cracks or bruises, as damaged fruit will not preserve as well. Space them wide apart on a wire rack so that they get plenty of air circulation and leave them for several weeks. The pomegranates dry by releasing moisture through their crowns.
