Melonstein???

Hi everyone! The watermelon's were marked down so I thought I'd get one for dinner on Sunday.
I scooped out the fruit and had a little fun.

My "before" for Met Monday:


I was aiming for Frankenstein... kinda looks more like a football player.
Actually, with the flat top hair cut and bloodshot eyes it looks like an old boyfriend... 
but that's a story for another time:@)

I do think the way it glows red is kinda neat though!

  9. Your melonstein is very creative. I once carved out a baby carriage for a baby shower from a long water melon - turned out pretty good.
    I'd give anything to see those pigs at the top dancing across the screen some time. :-)

  31. Hi Lynn,

    Cute melon!! I love your stained glass!! I used to do stained glass many years ago, but it wasn't the most kid-friendly hobby! Maybe I'll get back to it again. My favorite of yours is "Sea Glass."

    I'm hosting a link party so get your best cocktail recipe ready and dust off those glasses! Join the Happy Hour link party this Wednesday!! Would love to have you link up!

  33. This is so cute. Who would have thought to make a JOL out of a melon. So neat. Man, he looks mean to me. I have to scroll back up and recheck those eyes. I may have missed what they are. Super idea. Ginger

  35. Good morning! Thanks for stopping by my post about the sewing box gift - it really is a sweet little piece of furniture. This idea for the watermelon is just so creative - you must always be thinking when you're out and about - very impressive! The old boyfriend comment was a hoot! I'm going to check out your last post's recipe for soup - it is definitely soup weather. Our favorite is Ina Garten's Wedding Soup recipe. Just so yummy - Ciao, bella!

  40. Hahaha! That is too cute! I never would have thought of doing that with fruit. I think instead of getting my students candy on halloween I'll make one of these and give them fruit...thankfully they like fruit almost more than candy.
