Last year at our summer BBQ, my mom made the best shark carving out of a watermelon. It took a healthy summer dessert to a whole new level of fun!
Watermelon Shark Carving
When we camp or go to the beach, my parents love to bring their A-game to the party for healthy food. My family tends to bring carving fruit to another level.
When you think of a simple fruit carving, oh no, my mom goes all out with her fruit and vegetable decoration.

Last year she made my niece’s birthday s’more into a cat. Seriously, when I say she goes all out. She knows how to make fruit sculptures into masterpieces!
Personally, I think fruit and vegetable carving is amazing! I have seen everything from simple fruit and vegetable carving to watermelon fruit bowl designs.

Have you ever been to a wedding with beautifully crafted roses out of fruits or at a birthday party with animals carved out of vegetables?
Another thing that was really cool that my mom designed was a melon. It wasn’t a jack o melon; it was a potato head melon. In fact, it was Mr. Potato head turned into a cantaloupe fruit tray.
Healthy Summer Dessert
Look at that shark! I love how this watermon shark carving fruit bowls turned out. It looks so realistic almost like it’s jumping out of the water in its natural habitat.
This is actually an easy fruit carving for beginners. It may look a little intimidating, but I think that’s just the shark. She mainly just used this to carve it.
For shark’s sake, we should call him Sharky or snarky Sharkey! Lol.
However, I am not sure if you will want to eat him if we name him, so maybe not, right? Lol.
With that said, I don’t have any pictures of the watermelon that was put in his mouth.
However, you can add the watermelon to his mouth and put it on the fruit tray as well.
This water melon is great for shark week! Also, you could easily make this a fruit platter, fruit salad, even cut it like an alligator instead of a shark if you want. Next, I think we will try this T-Rex dinosaur carving!
Lastly, it’s your turn. Will you create an easy fruit carving to sink your teeth in for your next get-together! We’d love to see your watermelon design ideas.
Don’t forget to pin it and save it for later! 🙂
