Or I should call this “Father Christmas Tree” fruit. Little b has taken to calling Christmas trees, “Father” Christmas trees. I think it is super cute 🙂
Now you may have seen some of the ideas I posted around Halloween – I used watermelon to make spooky shapes and whatnot. Well…watermelon is also ideal for making Christmassy themed shapes too. I made some flat trees and then some 3d ones using different size star cutters – topped with a strawberry.
As with any cutters, you sometimes get a bit of waste. I typically cut this up and pop it in a cute bowl as a fruit salad. You could of course just eat the leftovers as you go if you want!
And here you go, Christmas watermelon. I added a couple of raisins to decorate the tree and some coconut “snow”.
