1

1
Cantaloupe
12
Wooden Skewers
2
lbs Green Grapes
2
Whole Cloves
1
Small Red Sweet Pepper
3

  1. Wash and dry your watermelon. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of the watermelon so it can sit flat and sturdy.
  2. Cut 1/3 to half of watermelon off leaving 4 in. on one end for the head. Scallop the edge if you're fancy and have skills.
  3. Use a melon baller to make melon balls from the piece of watermelon that was cut off as well as the cantaloupe. Set asside two cantaloupe balls (for eyes, later). Thread grapes, watermelon balls and remaining cantaloupe balls onto skewers and add to turkey as feathers.
  4. For eyes, insert a clove into the center of each of two cantaloupe balls. Using toothpicks, attach eyes and add small sweet red pepper for turkey wattle.
