Ribbon Basket

 Materials
  • 1 Symmetrical watermelon
  • 1 knife
  • Pencil or marker
 Instructions
  1. Select a symmetrical watermelon. If necessary, cut a thin slice from the bottom of the watermelon so it sits level.
  2. Draw a straight line (just above the middle) lengthwise around the watermelon for the basket's edge.
  3. Draw a handle diagonally across the top as shown in the photograph.
  4. Draw a bow as shown in the photograph so that one edge of the bow is connected to the basket's edge.
  5. Cut and remove the top sections leaving the handle and bow intact.
  6. Scoop out the flesh from inside the watermelon, leaving just a trace of red.
  7. Drain the watermelon before filling.
