DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) - How To Carve Wedding Watermelon With Heart And Roses Pattern

Enjoy fruit carving art with me and make your own Heart&Roses wedding watermelon using my tutorial. The Heart&Roses design is suitable for wedding and Valentine Day.  For making this pattern you need some carving tools as thai knife and U-knife.

Step 1.
Choose a medium size round watermelon (5-6 kilo). Scratch a heart on a watermelon skin. Use a heart stencil to draw a nice one.

Cut a heart with a thai knife and remove green skin inside the heart silhouette cutting small pieces of skin.

Step 2. Carve a rose inside the heart. Then using a round-shape knife make slots. Cut from the heart edge toward the rose petals keeping the heart line.

Step 3. As far as you done Step 2 cut a bigger heart with a round-shape knife. Insert the knife into the skin to flash. Remove watermelon skin around the heart.

Step 4. At this stage you carve a rose wreath around the green heart.

Step 5. Complete the pattern with a band carved around the roses. The final look of the watermelon makes a fruit stand or a special plate what fixes fruits.
I garnished the Heart&Roses Watermelon with the flowers from raddish, kiwi and apple carving centerpieces. Orange one is a nectarine.
