I’m working on my video of the month carving lessons. I’ll be starting with some easy beginner lessons and moving into more intermediate. As intricate as these carved melons look, they are not difficult to do if you are shown how….which is exactly what I’ll be doing in my upcoming lessons.
Which of these melon carving patterns would you be most interested in learning how to do? Please indicate with your vote below each of the photos that you would most like to learn. You can vote for as many as you like.
The carvings with the highest star ratings will be included in my upcoming lessons.
Please Vote for the carvings below that YOU would most like to learn.

hi I love your site I am looking for a pattern or picture of a mellon carved into a bowl shaped like the Miss America Pageant 4 point crown any suggestions
Thanks. I’m glad that you like my site.
I don’t have any Miss America crown watermelon carving patterns or photos. The best thing I can suggest is that you search Google Images for Miss America Crown. Then use the photos as a pattern with which to carve your watermelon. I’d stand the melon vertically and cut the top of the crown design all the way through the melon so that it forms the top edges of the bowl. Then I would carve the pattern of the rest of the crown into the rind of the watermelon. Leave the part of the melon that is under the bottom of the crown complete intact. That way you will end up with a bowl that has the crown pattern at the top. I hope that helps. Have fun making your crown melon. Try carving a practice melon in advance of your event. If it turns out not as good as you would like you can always eat it and make improvements on your next attempt. If you love your results, send me a photo.
Its so refreshing, i have never seen this before and will be trying it, I love each and every one of them. I have been doing wood carving, but this will be much easier on the hand. I love the tools you use. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, I love your demonstrations, very easy to follow.
Hi Nita, just finished working on some of the portrait pumpkin carving lessons I purchased. I just love them, and I wanted to tell you that I found something great that
takes the carbon off the pumpkins. After you pull off your stencil and the carbon paper
under it, use a magic eraser. The black carbon comes off with almost one swipe, it was so fast I couldn’t believe it. Just thought I’d pass that on to you. Thanks again for
the lessons you prepare for us newbies to try to do. They’re GREAT!!
Thank you for the great tip Becky.
