Melon Bunny Carving Ideas for Spring and Easter

In a recent post, I wrote about Melon Bunny carvings. Since then I have received several more photos of creative carved melon bunnies made my students and blog readers. So, here they are, just in time for Easter.

Maybe their photos will give you some new ideas for your own melon bunny carvings.

Creative and Whimsical Melon Bunny Carvings

I love how some readers have taken the melon bunny idea and ran with it! The melon bunny carving that I teach in my video lesson is great for serving fruit, but you can also use the melon bunny theme as a centerpiece for decorating purposes. (You can see the melon bunny fruit bowl idea further down on this page.)

Long time caterer and professional carver Carl Jones, got creative with his melon bunny carving:

I love Carl’s abstract version of a melon bunny. It’s quite whimsical and really gives the bunny its own personality. If you look closely, you’ll see that Carl used a watermelon rose carving pattern to make the bunny’s eyes. The resulting effect is that the bunny’s eyes look bloodshot and he looks quite angry! Watermelon roses are something I teach in my video lessons as well. Even if you’re a beginner, you can learn to carve watermelon roses in my Carving Watermelons DVD, which can be purchased alone or as lesson 11 of my full Vegetable and Fruit Carving Course 101.

This next photo of a melon bunny was carved for Easter by Kelvin Jacobs:

Charming isn’t it?

One of my readers, Jean Geraldo Silva, is a professional fruit decorator.  Have a look at at Jean’s cantaloupe melon bunny display below:

Phung used apples, oranges and potato in her carving. She also used cantaloupe peel to make ears for her bunnies. Aren’t they cute?
