Have an emoji lover in your life? Whether it’s your sweetheart or your tween, everyone knowns someone who loves replying to texts and messages with teeny-tiny photos. Thumbs up. Smiley face. Smiley face with heart eyes.
And it’s that person that this adorable (and simple!) kitchen craft was created for.
After you turned our Watermelon Pig into the single most pinned Good Cook recipe ever, we thought it would be fun to create a few all-new melon ideas, and celebrate #watermelonweek on our Instagram channel. It was that inspiration which led us straight to carving a giant, round melon into a happy, heart-eyed emoji.
Quick, simple and so cute. Check out just how easy it is to prep this party-perfect treat:
So simple, this fun idea can be made in 10 minutes or less.
Here’s a sideview of the melon. Simply slice 1/4 from the upper back section of the melon with a Good Cook Melon Knife. Clean the cut piece until just 1/4″ of the red fruit remains, then cut with a heart-shaped cookie cutter to create the eyes.
A small sharp =knife, like the Good Cook 4″ Paring Knife makes it easy to slice and shape a cut out for the mouth.
