How fun are these watermelon star cut-outs?
They're so fast and easy to make! All you need is . . .
a ripe watermelon
star-shaped cookie cutter
one plastic straw
Slice the watermelon into 1/2-inch thick rounds, and then use cookie cutter to cut star shapes.
Tips of the trade . . .
I use the end of a plastic straw to punch a hole in the center of the stars, so that I can easily snug a blueberry in the center;
and you can also use the plastic straw to pre-drill a hole for the paper straw.
It works like a charm!
. . . . . .
a fun & patriotic treat for kids
festive garnish for drinks
. . . . . .
I'm on the hunt for a crab or lobster shaped cookie cutter.
How cute would it be to cut watermelon into the shapes of crabs & lobsters for Summer entertaining!
Happy Summer, friends!
