Step 1: Shop for Your Fruit
When I visited Woolworths, they only had cut watermelon wedges on the fruit and vegetable floor, however just ask, because the staff are only too happy to go back into the store room to grab a whole watermelon. Try and grab a longer melon rather than a round – it makes the end result look cuter! I specifically asked for a ‘Pretty Watermelon’ and they were only too happy to oblige!
The fruit that I used in my version included:
- White Grapes
- Red Grapes
But seriously – you can use any fruit in season!
Step 2: Cut the Very Bottom Of the Watermelon
Now large watermelons can be a bit tricky to handle – so if you cut the ‘bum’ off the bottom of the watermelon, and then place it on the cut side down, it will give you stability.
Especially seeing you are about to use a sharp knife to cut the shapes out in the next step!
Step 3: Use a Marker to Mark Your Scary Watermelon Face
Grab a whiteboard marker or permanent marker and draw on some eyes (I just did basic triangles for the eyes) – then with the mouth – you want it wide and open so you can see inside!
Step 4: Cut Up All Your Fruit
You don’t even need to cut up the fruit in a similar fashion – just make them bite-sized!
Step 5: Scoop Out the Watermelon Flesh
But don’t throw it away! I used an ice cream scoop to pull all the flesh out of the watermelon!
Step 5: Assemble the Vomit
Then mix the fruit up and place both in the Watermelon’s mouth, and just outside in an epic Rainbow Yawn! There, a vomiting watermelon! We used a variety of the fantastic range of Halloween items from Woolworths to decorate the table to make it really scary!
