Next, Choose the pattern that you’d like to carve. Carefully tape the pattern to your watermelon, using a toothpick or small pointed object carefully poke holes along your pattern lines indicating the areas you will carve out. (Just as you would a Pumpkin Carving Template.)
Once you have added your pattern to your watermelon, carefully cut out the largest piece that is to be removed. Using a melon-baller or spoon, scoop out your melon, saving it in a bowl.
When you're carving is ready, you can refill your watermelon later with an assortment of fruit chunks or fruit salad. For a little extra color include some fresh raspberries, blackberries or blueberries.
All of the above baskets and designs are brought to you by the National Watermelon Promotion Board.
