Take a look at several beautiful Easter melon carvings that were made by a student and blog reader. These may give you some ideas for your next Easter carvings that will delight your friends and family.
Isn’t this Easter lily melon bowl beautiful? It was created by Rose Flores who is a past student of my lessons. She carved a pretty graphic pattern of an Easter lily then surrounded it with a circle with tiny carved zig zags that pick up the dark green of the rind. Then she carved a 3 dimensional petal pattern around the bowl.

Two carvings I did for the celebration of Easter 2017….only had a couple hours to do the bunny carving, otherwise I would have made the white spaces a little cleaner….fun all the same….Happy Late Easter Greetings!!
