Watermelon Tiki Mask Table Decoration

1 oblong seedless watermelon
Pencil or green dry erase marker
Melon baller
Paring and kitchen knives
Channel knife

  1. Using an oblong watermelon, slice ¼ inch off an end to provide a stable base.
  2. Use a pencil to draw the face, making adjustments in scale to your particular watermelon.
  3. Use a melon baller to scoop out nostrils - use a small paring knife to clean up edges.
  4. Next use a paring knife to cut out the inside mouth area, leaving room for the teeth.
  5. Next cut the individual teeth, using the same small paring knife, and use a spoon to dig out a large area of flesh for mouth cavity.
  6. Next carve out eyes, digging a deep cavity in each, for drama. Use a channel knife to carve details.
  7. Use some carved out pieces to cut a "bone" decoration for top of head, and attach with a toothpick.
