- Wash the watermelon under cool running water and pat dry.
- On a cutting board, place the watermelon on its side and cut off 1/4" to 1/2" from the stem end, being careful not to cut too deep into the white part of the rind. This will provide a sturdy base.
- Using the paring knife, cut a 3-4” round circle in the top of the watermelon.
- Use the melon baller to make shallow round divots into the rind of the watermelon to mimic the dimples in a golf ball. Next, using a kitchen knife peel thin layers of the rind off to expose the white underneath, being careful not the cut too deep or the red flesh will be exposed. Try to get as much of the green rind off so it will resemble a white golf ball.
- Hollow out the watermelon with a spoon or scoop, reserving the watermelon pieces to make your melon balls to use around your watermelon carving.
- Place on a tray and add watermelon balls to serve. Decorate accordingly.
