First I cut the angle for the base and then popped out a wedge for the mouth….
Then I disemboweled the melon!
Next I took a potato peeler and removed just a strip around the opening to reveal the white of the rind. Using a small knife I cut triangles all the way around. At this point I felt more like I was carving a pumpkin then a watermelon.
Then I chopped up the watermelon and filled the shark back up. I cut a piece of left over rind to make a fin. Last I glued on two very big wiggly eyes and let’s just say, I am the best mom ever! LOL Yup, that’s what the oldst country kid told me…… Best mom ever, well at least for the next hour anyway!
Now tell me, don't you want to be the best mom ever? Or maybe the hit at a summer cook out? Can you imagine if you showed up for a function, like a pot luck, lugging one of these bad boys? Simple to make, yet turns the average person into a melon god!!! So get going and impress your friends and family!
