Holiday Fruit Carving Ideas - Snowman Fruit Bowl

It is the time of year we all start thinking about getting a little more creative and for most people the holidays are about food and family. So in that spirit I will be posting fruit carving and food art inspired projects for holiday gatherings all month! 
So here is my first holiday fruit carving idea which is a simple snowman fruit bowl made out of 3 mini watermelons of varying sizes. Watermelon balls for the eyes, melon wedge for the nose and blueberries for the mouth. Decorate your fruit bowl snowman with the normal snowman accessories like a top hat, a scarf and twig arms!

Pumpkin Carving Stencil - Pumpkin Tattoo

I thought this was pretty cool, pumpkin carving tattoo stencils! Instead of using paper patterns you actually stick the tattoo on the pumpkin and carve it that way. The set pictured here is from the artist Ray Villafane, who creates awesome 3D pumpkin carvings ... now he has made even the most basic pumpkin carving even easier! Click the photo to see more pumpkin tattoo patterns.

Frozen Fruit Dessert Maker - Fruit Sorbet

I want one!!
You add frozen fruit into the machine and out comes a fruit sorbet that looks like soft serve ice cream. I think this is neat because I always have leftover fruit and this would be a new way to eat it!
