Watermelon Ribbon Basket

Watermelon Ribbon Basket

This basket is great for any occasion during the year. It is the perfect container for punches, salads or desserts.



  • Watermelon
  • Sharp pointed utensil
  • Sharp knife
  • Large spoon


  1. Select a symmetrical watermelon. If necessary, cut a thin slice from the bottom of the watermelon so it sits level.
  2. Draw a straight line (just above the middle) lengthwise around the watermelon for the basket's edge.
  3. Draw a handle diagonally across the top.
  4. Draw a bow, so that one edge of the bow is connected to the basket's edge.
  5. Cut and remove the top sections leaving the handle and bow intact.
  6. Scoop out the flesh from inside the watermelon, leaving just a trace of red.
  7. Drain the watermelon before filling.
