Speaking of the fruit plate carving that can hold fruit, in addition to watermelon, everyone is most familiar with the canary carved by cantaloupe. But now the fruit is really expensive! In the past, a few pounds of cantaloupe, now a few yuan a pound, in fact, we may wish to use other cheap melon to carve fruit bowl, melon is my favorite, sweet and sweet. So I bought a green melon, but it is impossible to make a dragon boat. Because the shape of the melon is not long enough, it is generally round, so turn it into a turtle boat that can hold fruit! However, this turtle is a bit special, the tortoise shell is decorated with a variety of fruits, but the belly is a bit of a pattern. Of course, you can also shape it according to your favorite.
Wash the cantaloupe, lie horizontally, select the position of the sail on the boat, and then cut it from the top with a long fruit knife and slowly cut it like the picture. Pay attention to the square of the melon when leaving a little square. The corner, the other end is also the same, the side of the arrow that I pointed to was engraved when I was engraved, and when I carved, I noticed that there is a small square corner like this one.

The melon that I just cut is now in use. I have carved four turtle claws, tails and heads, fixed with toothpicks, and decorated with dark grape skins.
Take another cantaloupe for canvas, cut into two large and small curved rectangles, cut off some melon meat, take 0.5cm thick melon skin, and then cut out the lace and middle pattern on both sides. (You can use special carving knife. Tool, I don't have a carving knife), pay attention to the pattern not to dig too deep to prevent breakage
Prepare a long barbecue bamboo stick, put on the two carved canvases, and press them into a slightly curved arc shape. On the top top, cut a triangular small flag string with watermelon or fire dragon peel.
Ok, you can use the cut or dig ball to cut down the various fruits you like to eat into the water ghost tray! Filled with fruit, the turtle boat begins to Yang Fan!
The fruit in the fruit bowl can be filled with the fruit you love.
