Impress your guests with this fun watermelon design

  • 1 Round Watermelon
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 2 honeydew melon
  • Paring knife
  • Flower Cookie Cutter
  • Melon Baller
  • Sturdy Toothpicks

Using a round watermelon, slice ¼ inch off the end to provide a stable base.

Cut off top with a large slicing knife.

Use the knife to remove top portion of the watermelon, which will be used to create the flowers.

Use a paring knife to carve out eyes and mouth. Cut 1/4″ slices from the rind of the removed top portion, and cut with flower shaped cookie cutters.

Use sturdy round toothpicks to attach flowers to head, and to attach decorative melon balls on top of flowers to form the centers.

Fill carving with summer fruits including watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe balls.
