Break out the carving kits; it’s time to get in the Halloween spirit by creating your own fang-tastic decorations. We’re not talking about your typical pumpkin carvings though. This year, we’re cutting into our favorite fruit to craft a Jack-o-Melon that’s as ghoulishly delightful to look at as it is to eat.
While ghosts, ghouls and goblins may give you a fright, you don’t need to fear these watermelon carvings – they’re eerily easy to make. Just follow these three simple steps to create your own boo-tiful Jack-o-Melon and have a hair-raising good time:
- Cut a thin slice off the bottom of your watermelon to provide a stable base. Cut a circular piece of the rind from the top (much like you would for a traditional pumpkin carving), remove the top section and set it aside to be used as a lid later.
- Using a melon baller, remove the flesh inside. Feel free to snack on this as you carve or save it for a fruit salad. Then, drain any excess liquid from inside the watermelon.
- Using a pen or knife, draw or scratch the outline of your Jack-o-Melon’s face on the side of the watermelon. Following the outlines, cut the features into the watermelon and remove any excess rind.
