  • Cut a small (about 3 inches down) portion off of the top of the watermelon, cutting as evenly as you can
  • Scoop out the watermelon and throw into the large bowl
  • Cut up your other fruit and toss it with the watermelon
  • Using the top of the watermelon, cut about a 2 inch slice off of the bottom of the watermelon top
  • Cut one end off so it resembles a U
  • Cut the red watermelon away from the green
  • Now you have a handle
  • Fill the watermelon and insert the skewers into the ends of the handle and through opposite sides of the watermelon
  • Insert your shovel and you are done, my friend!
