This beautiful Star Flower watermelon bowl was created for, and featured on, Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family Show.  When I first arrived at the set at Universal Studios and unwrapped my carved watermelon baskets, a bunch of members of the crew crowded around and started taking photos to share with their friends. They ooohed and aaahed. When it came time to rehearse the hosts, guests and cast ooohed and aaahed, too. I know the same will happen for you.

The clear step-by-step instructions were created with beginners in mind. This star flower watermelon bowl can be made with only a sharp pointed paring knife. Although these lessons were created with beginners in mind, they are great for any level of carver. No special tools are required. (A U-cutter tool and Thai Pro knife are optional, but not essential).

51 minute Star Flower Watermelon Bowl video lesson, you will see clear close ups and hear descriptions and instructions that will make it easy for you to follow along. If you have seen my other melon carving video instructions, you are already familiar with the quality of my videos.

These Melon Basket Weave lessons are designed to function much like a live class. You will be able to carve along with the video. The questions that you are likely to have are answered as we progress through the lessons. You’ll see how to avoid common mistakes and you’ll see how to fix them. You’ll see how to store your melon bowl so that it’s fresh looking when you are ready to serve it.

The same carving techniques taught in this Star Flower lesson can be used to carve beautiful pumpkins, too. You Star flower pumpkins can be lit from inside. They can used as a vase for an Autumn bouquet of flowers. Or you could use a carved pumpkin to serve soup at the table.

The advantage of these video lessons over live classes is that you always have a front row seat with a clear view and sound. There are no other students to interrupt or distract. And you can review your video lessons any time that you want to refresh your memory.

You are an awesome teacher. Fruit carving has been a hobby for me but I have decided explore it more. The sky is the limit. – Helen Ashuntantang

This star flower watermelon bowl is great any time that watermelons are available. For people in California and Florida, that is pretty much, year round. You can modify this pattern to fit other holidays. Carve stars with five points (instead of the 6 pointed star flowers) and you’ll have a stars and stripes bowl perfect for the 4th of July or Memorial Day. Or, take a look below to see how the same carving techniques can be used to make a gorgeous leaf pattern bowl.

You will experience the satisfaction of creating something beautiful. The envy of your friends will be just an extra added bit of fun.

Tools used in this lesson. Only a sharp pointed paring knife is essential. In the video lesson, I used a Victorinox 3.24 inch paring knife. The Thai Pro knife and a medium/large U-Cutter are recommended but entirely optional. You can cut the circles for the flower centers with a sharp pointed paring knife, however, the u-cutter makes it much faster and easier, and make exact. The U-cutter that I use in the video is from our 7 Piece Pro Carving Set. You can also use one from our more economical Smooth U-V cutter set. You can add the tools to your cart using the buttons immediately below in the section titled, “Related Products”.
