These watermelon carving patterns for Easter were created for my student/customers who have some basic carving skills. So, carving lessons are not included with the patterns. If you are not familiar with carving patterns onto watermelons, you can learn how in our Carving Letters and Words video lessons. The techniques that you will learn in Carving Letters and Words can be applied to carving graphic patterns like these.
If you carve the same cross pattern seen above, but in reverse, it will look like the photo below. Personally, I prefer the cross carving above, but this version is faster to carve. (Next time, I’ll pick a better shaped watermelon. Ha.)
You can print our Easter patterns on any paper. However, for best results, our Pattern Transfer Fabric is highly recommended.
Please note that the Pattern Transfer Paper is not included with the purchase of these digital patterns. You can get your Pattern Transfer paper by clicking here.
Our Pattern Transfer Fabric is highly recommended to use with these patterns. These Easter themed watermelon carving patterns can be printed on any paper. However, the transfer pattern fabric makes it fast and easy to carve any printable pattern. You just print the pattern onto the special fabric, peel off the backing, stick in on your watermelon, and carve. When you are done, the remaining pattern is easy to peel off. It’s the fastest and easiest way of transferring your pattern to your watermelon. You’ll save a ton of time and will find it easy to carve right through the fabric – like tracing – to get professional looking results. Your friends and family will be impressed!
Adding additional trimming to your watermelon carving patterns for Easter.
After you carve your pattern, you may add additional finishes to your watermelon carving as shown in the following photos. The simple scalloped edge on the Happy Easter watermelon was added using a medium small u-cutter. You can make scalloped edges like these using a knife as well. However, it is easier and faster the carve consistent sized scallops using the u-cutters. You can see this technique demonstrated in Carving Letters and Words video lessons.
Adding a Fancier Trim
You can carve additional fancy trimming on your Easter watermelon carving. These fancy jagged edged petals are an intermediate to advanced technique taught in the video lessons Melon Carving – Smooth and Jagged Petals.
Here is a closer look at the zig-zagged edged petals.
Even if you choose not to add the additional trim to your melons, these patterns will make it simple to carve the cross, the bunny and the Happy Easter. You’ll be thrilled to display your beautiful Easter carvings at your Easter celebration.
