Let some fun with onion. Follow these instructions and make a beautiful Onion Lotus Centerpiece.
Things you Need
Cut the onion in half crosswise, and cut out 3/4-inch triangles all the way around the edge.
Trim 1/4 inch off the bottom of the onion half and separate out the layers. The inner layers will have blunt ends, so further trimming will be needed to get the pointy ends.
