Great for parties, school picnics etc. Simple enough to give it a try.

Thing's you'll need: A watermelon, a thin bladed knife, a melon baller, an icecream scoop, a marker, other fruits you like.

Here is the step by step instructions:

1. Mark the top of the melon as shown





2. With a long, thin bladed knife, cut out the top of the watermelon, leave the center as handle. Cut the handle to wave shape.





3. Use the melon baller to scoop the flesh out. Put about half melon balls in a big bow. Feed the other half to your kids who cannot wait.



4. Now you can use an icecream scoop to scrap the inside walls of the watermelon clean.



5. If you like, cut the handle so it waves a little bit more. Mix other melon balls or fruits with watermelon balls then put them into the basket.

The watermelon bowl looks yummy, and the snail hairclip is a fascinating project. Thanks!

I am so making this for my friend's birthday cookout, despite the cold weather we're having for some reason.

I cut a crenshaw melon like this with the point of it at the top of the handle. It looked so adorable! Then I just refilled it with the sliced melon and some blueberries.  It turned out so well. Thank you for the inspiration!!!!
