How to Make How to Carve a Watermelon Basket

Step-by-Step

  1. Choose a watermelon that's a shape and size fitting for the table.
    Cut a thin slice from the bottom to provide a stable base.
  2. Draw the outlines for the heart basket with a fine/medium point waterproof marker or a sharp pencil before you cut.
    Halve the watermelon lengthwise with a straight, jagged, or wavy line.
  3. Leave a thick handle to "hold" the basket up from the center. (optional)
    Use a knife or decorating tool to cut out the edges. Be careful not to cut through the handle.
  4. Carefully remove the top quarter sections when the cutting is complete.
    Save the cut-out pieces for later. Trim the flesh from the inside of the handle.
  5. Cut out hearts or other designs from the rind you removed to decorate the outside of the basket and attach them with toothpicks.
  6. Fill with your favorite fruit, or, just follow the instructions of the watermelon fruit basket.
