* NOTE: This is very important use the shaper knife to cut the top of the watermelon before making any other cuts. This will reduce the pressure inside the watermelon and prevent the outline from cracking when cutting.

Are you craving Watermelon yet? Be sure to check out my Easy Watermelon Popsicle Recipe!

Introduction: Watermelon Carving Basics: Roses!

How to carve watermelon

How to carve watermelon

How to carve watermelon

Due to the success of the Sunflower Watermelon Carving Instructable and the interest in wanting to see how the Roses were made, I have gone ahead and made thi Instructable. An easy how-to forsculptureRoses into a watermelon. Have fun!

Step 1: consumables!

You will need:
One watermelon
A peeling knife
Medium circle cookie cutters

Step 2: let’s get started!

Start by using your paring knife to trace a circle on the side of the watermelon you want to carve. Once you have cut out a circle template to follow, use the paring knife to peel away the green part of the watermelon rind, leaving the white fleshy part exposed.

Note: Save some of the larger pieces of veggies you tear. They will be needed later!

Step 3: clean it!

After tearing off the green pieces, you will see darker parts of the skin that you may have lost due to the uneven cut. No problem, just take the knife to peel and clean it, peeling off as much greenish color as possible until only a white crust appears. It doesn’t have to be perfect though so don’t spend hours on it or you’ll end upsculptureaway all the white part and hit the fruit instead!

Step 4: make some leaves!

So remember those green parts I told you to keep! Take them and cut out some leaves. (I made a total of 3 for mine) Then cut out some details and set them aside for later. At this point, you can get rid of all the rest of the unwanted skin.

Step 5: start The Roses!

To start the rose, grab your circle cookie cutter and press it gently into the watermelon, no more than 1/3 of the cookie cutter in. You’re not cutting out shapes, you’re just creating a pattern to follow.
After you cut the circle, use the paring knife to cut a ring around the circle and carve out some of the watermelon around it, making it appear more 3D.

Step 6: the first row of petals!

Take a peeling knife and cut a small piece from the crescent-shaped circle. Make the first cut straight down.
Then cut the ribbon in front of the previous cut, but do it at an angle to the first cut.
Take out the second slice you took out and you have the first petal.
Repeat this process around the circle for the first row of petals.

To understand better, take a look at the posted photos showing this process.

Step 7: second row of petals!

In the second row, you will continue to cut the thin crescent-shaped strip downwards and then cut the second thin crescent-shaped strip parallel to the center at an angle to the first cut. Pull out the second diagonal strip to complete the petal.
Repeat this process around the circle to complete the second row.

Again, for a better understanding, please see the photos I have posted.

Step 8: third row!

Continue to use the ribbon cutting method deeper into the circle to create more rows of petals, decreasing each row closer to the center.

Step 9: in the middle of the rose!

When you get to the point where there is only a small piece of uncut circle in the center. Use a peeling knife to make a hole in the center of the last center piece. The center of your rose is now ready, it’s time to move on to the outer layers!

Step 10: The outer petals of Pt. 1

Unlike the inner layers, all cuts will be diagonal at this stage. The first cut you make should be at an angle of approximately 45 degrees. Make a wavy / crooked petal-shaped cut.
Then on the first cut, at an angle of about 20 degrees, cut the rounded cut that surrounds the first cut. Pull this strip out so that the first incision you made comes out of the melon.

It looks more complicated than it actually is, see the photos for a better understanding.

Step 11: The outer petals of Pt. 2!

Keep cutting the waves / curves of the petals and cut the portion of melon behind them to make them look 3D.
The farther from the center, the larger the cuts and petals should be.

See the photos for reference!

Step 12: complete the squad!

Step 13: Frame the Squad!

After completing the rose, make as many petals as you want. She ends by framing it.
Like sunflowers, cut a large angled circle around the flower and pull out a piece of melon.
Thi will make the rose look like it i popping out from the watermelon even more than it already does.

You can repeat this process to make more roses on the cantaloupe, or maybe mix it with sunflowers and other things. Your choice! For thi example I made 2 roses on my watermelon.

Step 14: final touches!

Now that you have your roses all carved up, grab the leaves you made from the watermelon rind earlier and place them where you would like on the roses. Just slide them into the slots. If necessary, use a peeling knife to deepen the gaps so the leaves don’t fall off and that’s it! Show off your friends and family, then slice and serve!

I’ve also included an additional photo of a newly sculpted melon that includes the use of roses and my first attempt at lighting the flames.

How to carve watermelonIf you are looking to make your princess super happy on her special day while impressing your guests, thi watermelon Tinkerbell will be the center of attention.

A watermelon carved to resemble Tinkerbell surrounded by healthy and delicious fruit makes a charming and refreshing addition to the spread for a summertime cookout or Tinkerbell-themed birthday party.

Thi project requires a round or even oblong watermelon to achieve the cup shape where Tinkerbell stands. Use the teacup watermelon as a vessel for serving the watermelon and other fruits such as strawberries, berries, cantaloupe or grape, where you and your guests can enjoy the fruit.

Things You’ll Need To Carve a Watermelon Tinkerbell

Step 1

Cut one end of the watermelon, which will serve as the “plate” that holds the teacup and Tinkerbell. Make sure both the skin and flesh surfaces are flat so the teacup won’t tip over (it happened to me twice).

How to carve watermelonStep 2

Cut your watermelon with a long a sharp knife right down the middle in half. Make the cuts as clean as possible by making a saw motion if necessary.

Step 3

Scoop out the watermelon flesh with a melon baller , and make sure to get rid of the pits. Put the melon balls in the bowl and put them in the fridge. Make sure to scoop out watermelon balls from the other half of the watermelon. If you’d like only scoop half the flesh from the half that i going to be the “teacup” as to only fill the surface with fruit and watermelon balls. Reserve large pieces of crust to make a cup holder and Tinker Bell.

Track and cut Tinker Bell from this model. Then lay it over the large pieces of rind you reserved from the other half of watermelon. Start cutting from the legs and larger areas, then enter the folds and cut with a channel knife. I found that the watermelon-slicer-corer tool worked best to accomplih thi look but you can use any knife you prefer. Also, a small precision knife like the one used for pumpkin carving is useful for cutting corners and small design details. To put aside.

Step 5

Trace and cut the handle of the cup with a smaller knife or steam knife.

Step 6

Fill in the teacup with the watermelon balls, strawberries, and berries or your choice of other fruit. The fruit is obviously used for decoration, but it also helps hold the skewers in place. A precision knife like the one used to carve pumpkin is useful for cutting corners and small design details.
Advice: You may fill up the bowl with bigger chunks of watermelon at the bottom, then put the watermelon balls and fruit on top for a fuller look.

Step 7

Push a toothpick or bamboo skewer horizontally through the bottom of Tinkerbell’s feet, then insert in the middle of the fruit bowl. I placed a chunk of watermelon in the middle which helped hold Tinkerbell stand straight.

There you have a beautifully carved watermelon Tinkerbell Bowl!

How to carve watermelon

So I have thi recently new hobby of mine, watermelon carving, that I am just having a blast with. So much so that I bought myself an elegant carving kit. But before the set, I was having fun experimenting and creating carvings with nothing but a paring knife and a watermelon. I noticed that Instructables lacked Instructables on watermelonsculpturecenterpieces, finding only a couple. So I decided to show some things I learned and create one for anyone looking to wow some of their friends and families at the next BBQ or party! Thi Instructable will center around showing you how to carve sunflowers into a watermelon. Hope you like it!

Step 1: consumables!

You will need:
One watermelon
A peeling knife
Medium circle cookie cutters

Step 2: let’s get started!

Start by using your paring knife to trace a circle on the side of the watermelon you want to carve. Once you have cut out a circle template to follow, use the paring knife to peel away the green part of the watermelon rind, leaving the white fleshy part exposed.

Note: Save some of the larger pieces of veggies you tear. They will be needed later!

Step 3: clean it!

After tearing off the green pieces, you will see darker parts of the skin that you may have lost due to the uneven cut. No problem, just take the knife to peel and clean it, peeling off as much greenish color as possible until only a white crust appears. It doesn’t have to be perfect though so don’t spend hours on it or you’ll end upsculptureaway all the white part and hit the fruit instead!

Step 4: make some leaves!

So remember those green parts I told you to keep! Take them and cut out some leaves. (I made a total of 4) Then cut out some details and set them aside for later. At this point, you can get rid of all the rest of the unwanted skin.

Step 5: Making a Plaque for Text! (Optional)

Now this part is optional. I did thi for the fun of adding text later, but you can leave thi out and just carve a bunch of flowers on your watermelon instead.
I outlined the shape with a kitchen knife. Then I went back and highlighted the outline of the shape to make it stand out more.

Step 6: Starting the Flowers!

To start the sunflower, grab your circle cookie cutter and press it gently into the watermelon, no more than 1/3 of the cookie cutter in. You’re not cutting out shapes, you’re just creating a pattern to follow.
After you cut the circle, use the paring knife to cut a ring around the circle and carve out some of the watermelon around it, making it appear more 3D.

Step 7: Crosshatching!

Cut off part of the edge of the circle to make it round. Then use a peeling knife to make diagonal and horizontal cuts, creating a hatch in the shape of a circle.

Step 8: flakes!

After hatching is complete, cut a row of petals around the circle.

Step 9: depth!

Next, cut the slit between each petal at an angle and pull out a piece of that slit. Thi will open up a bit of the watermelon flesh giving it color and depth. Repeat this with each space between the petals.

Step 10: Petal Detail!

Use the tip of a kitchen knife to cut small triangles from each petal for a more detailed and colorful look.

Step 11: Flower Growth!

After the first row of petals competes, start the second row by cutting new petals between each of the first row’s petals. Usa entrambi i passaggi precedenti per tagliare gli spazi vuoti e i triangoli in ogni petalo. Keep adding rows of petals until you are happy with the size of the flower you are working on.

Step 12: Finihing the Flower!

When you have made a flower as large as you want, finish it by cutting a small circle around the angled flower. This will give the flower a finished look that will pop out!

Continue making multiple flowers all over the watermelon using thi method.

Step 13: Text! (Optional)

Once you have completed all the flowers, go to the chalkboard you created for the text. (If you choose!)
First, use the tip of the kitchen knife to lightly sketch the nape of the neck.
Then go back over it and cut deeper into the flesh, sculpturebits out.

Step 14: Adding the Leaves!

When you have completedsculpturethe watermelon to your liking, take your knife and cut slits into the side of the watermelon where you want the leaves to be placed.
Take the finished leaves from earlier and slide them into the slots you cut out for them.

Step 15: All Done!

With the leaves added to your watermelon, you are now done! Show it to friends and family, then a sad but delicious ending: slice it and eat it! Mmmm, lovely graphics.

I also included a few photos of other watermelons I have carved. If this Instructables fits well and there is interest in it, I would be happy to create others by showing other methods such as carving the roses seen in my other photos and other stuff!

Are you planning to cook, have a picnic, or a family reunion this Memorial Day weekend?

I thought I’d like to share something fun and easy to do that always amazes everyone!

A watermelon basket filled with beautiful, colorful, fruit.

Here are 4 easy steps to follow.

How to carve watermelonTake a step 1 – Place watermelon width-wie on a flat surface. Roll the cantaloupe until it settles in a position where it will stay stable or cut a thin slice from the bottom for stability. As shown, use the strips of masking tape to mark the lines of the handle and the perimeter of the basket.

How to carve watermelonStep 2 – Use a sharp knife to cut out the outline of the handle, guided by the outer edges of the masking tape. To make a scallop stencil, he uses scissors to cut a circle of paper. (The size of the melon determines the size of the circle. The watermelon shown i small so the circle used i relatively small.) Fold circle in half and cut along fold. Starting on both sides of the media, place the straight edge of a semicircle of paper over the top edge of the masking tape that forms the edge. With a sharp pencil, draw a row of scallops along the edge, stopping just before reaching the ends of the melon. Draw the remaining scallop freehand at each end, connecting the blank.

Step 3 – Using a a sharp knife, cut into the watermelon along the scalloped pencil lines. Then, she cuts a large wedge from the area on either side of the handle, leaving about an inch above the serrated edge. Remove the wedge by inserting a knife between the scallops, cut the melon directly, deep enough to release the top of the rim. Pick it up and throw it away.

How to carve watermelonStep 4 – Remove the adhesive tape. Scoop out watermelon from rind. For a fruit basket, add a mixture of fresh fruit combined with watermelon cut into one-inch cubes or melon balls. I have never been able to make the watermelon balls so I always cut into cubes.

The final look is truly amazing.

Happy Holiday weekend, now go wow everyone with yoursculpturetalents!

Seriously, it’s that simple!

How to carve watermelon

To me cold juicy watermelon i summers’ ultimate thirst quencher (well it i over 90% water!). And now that most of the melons in the market are seedless, it’s easier than ever to dive in and eat/drink without spitting (or swallowing) seeds. They’re smaller than traditional long melons, and perfect in delicious watermelon recipes from salads to salsas to slushies — even watermelon pizza.

If you have room in your fridge, the best value deal i to buy a whole watermelon. E se hai spazio, questo i esattamente quello che dovresti fare: non lasciarti intimidire dalla prospettiva di tagliare a dadini un melone pesante. Dzięki kilku prostym wskazówkom i to całkiem proste.

Watermelon i one of my go-to party foods. It’s pretty universally liked, easy to serve, and reasonably priced. For Little Mis’ Dragon Party, I thought the food table was mising a little something. So I tried my hand at my first ever watermelonsculptureand made a watermelon dragon.

How to carve watermelon

What you need for your watermelon dragon

  • 1 watermelon
  • wooden skewers
  • a sharp knife
  • melon ball (optional)

How I made my watermelon dragon

I started by cutting the watermelon in half and scooping out all the fruit. I used a melon ball, but you can use any method. Thi half became the body of my dragon.

How to carve watermelon

From the other half of the watermelon, I cut a slice from the cut side of the watermelon and set it aside. Then I took out the other half.

From the second half I made the dragon’s wings and feet.

I used the natural curve of the watermelon to my advantage and just cut triangles for the wings.

How to carve watermelon

To keep the wings flush with the upper body, I cut two small cuts for each wing.

How to carve watermelon

Then I attached the wings with the wooden skewers.

How to carve watermelon

For the feet, I cut out smaller triangles, but used my melon ball to follow the guidelines for cutting the toes. I wed my feet under the dragon’s body.

How to carve watermelon

Then I moved onto my head. From the large piece I cut earlier, I cut the length I need for the neck. Using my melon ball, I pushed the fruit back to leave a slightly scalloped edge.

How to carve watermelon

I used skewers to attach the neck to the body of the watermelon dragon. To create the tail, I repeated thi process with a smaller piece.

I felt like the head was still mising something, so I cut a small piece from the leftovers of the giant slice and attached it to the head of the dragon, to resemble an open mouth.

How to carve watermelon

Dopo che tutto i andato bene con la disposizione di tutti i pezzi, ho tagliato gli spiedini in modo che non fossero così evidenti.

Finally, I filled the dragon with watermelon and added it to the food table.

How to carve watermelon

I was expecting the process of making a watermelon sculpture to be a lot longer, but since I used basic shapes, and let the curve of the watermelon work for me, it only took about 30 minutes.
