Cut bottom of watermelon so it can stand up on the plate and scoop out watermelon. I used the watermelon from inside in fruit salad for the shower. Attach stencil to front of watermelon, use a toothpick to poke holes along where you will cut. Take off the stencil and you will see a dotted line picture to carve out. Put a tea light inside.
Note: You cannot do this in advance as the rind starts to wither as a pumpkin would.

A fun way to contain and present your fruit salad for a party, is by carving a unique bowl using the watermelon rind. This is a page about making watermelon fruit bowls.
