Carved Honeydew Basket

Creating a carved honeydew basket or watermelon basket is a great way to delight your family (and show off your carving skills). The melon baskets are especially perfect for a unique Easter basket idea.

You can learn to carve your very own carved honeydew basket in my new lesson, Melon Basket Weave. The lesson is available now.

One of my Australian student/customers, Ali Butt, recently sent me these photos of his version of the melon basket weave. He is the first person to share his photos since I introduced my newest lesson teaching how to carve this basket weave pattern.

Ali used his basket as a vase for real flowers. It looks quite beautiful, doesn’t it?

The basket carving can be done in a variety of other ways too. You can either hollow out the melon to create an actual basket to hold melon balls and other fruit. Or, you can carve the bottom half with a basket weave and carve decorative flowers into the top half.

If you are one of my students of my basket weave lessons and want to share your photos with me, I’d love to see them. And who knows, maybe your photos will get featured on my blog, too.
