In some weeks this summer I bought two watermelons. One to eat. One to carve into something. Like carving a pumpkin in the fall, I carve a watermelon in the summer.
This years carving was an Angry Bird scene I made for a summer birthday party.
I bought a four piece Angry Bird set. A sling shot, a watermelon, and a bag of key limes to make more pigs since the Angry Bird set only came with one pig.
The cubed melon pieces were put together with wooden screwers and stacked up on the watermelon with loose melon cubes scattered around. The sling shot and birds set up on one end. Pig faces painted on the key limes and set around on and in the stacked melon cubes.
Here's My Inspiration photo compared to My Version photo.
I've also carved a watermelon shark and a pirate ship in past summers. You can see the shark here.
