Don't toss away that watermelon rind after the 4th of July celebration, turn it into a Fourth-o-Lantern. Pumpkins shouldn't get to have all of the fun!

It's easy and fun (like carving a pumpkin), but there are some minor melon-specific tricks that are different from a pumpkin.

Step 1: Materials and tools

spoon or scooper
Cool! The only problem is since no one goes around trick-or-treating to your house on the fourth, no one will see it! I guess you could use it as a centerpiece at a fourth of July party... Other then that awesome instructable!
But if you just prepped a bowl of watermelon for a BBQ... there may be other people in attendance :) Maybe have it on display at a party while you're all lighting fireworks.
