Have Made It

Spooky and sweet all in one!





  1. Wash the watermelon under cool running water and pat dry.
  2. On a cutting board, place the watermelon on its side and cut 1/4”-1/2” directly opposite from the stem, being careful not to cut to deep into the white part of the rind. This will provide a sturdy base.
  3. Use the large ice cream scoop to scoop out a large red ball to create the red bird from the center. Hollow out the top half of the watermelon with a spoon or scoop, reserving the watermelon pieces to dice up for blocks for decorating. Cut a rectangle out of the base section, leaving a flat surface on each side of the middle. Reserve a small piece of the outer green top half for the pig noses.
  4. Using the paring knife, cut a 3-4” round circle from the upper back side of the watermelon, starting just below the stem and reserve this lid. Hollow out the watermelon with a scoop or melon baller, reserving the watermelon pieces to make your melon balls to use around your watermelon carving.
  5. Dry off any watermelon juice from the exterior and outline the witch template using the dry erase marker.
  6. Use the paring knife to cut away the outline of the witch, being careful to leave parts of the witch attached.
  7. Wipe off any excess dry erase lines and clean up the edges of your cuts. Place on a platter, garnish with watermelon balls, add the battery operated light inside and replace the lid to allow the light to glow better.
