1. Hollow out the inside of the watermelon have with a large spoon. Leave about 1/2 inch of the red watermelon flesh above the white rind. Then set the watermelon on a tray with 2 rolled up kitchen towels on the side to keep it from rolling.

Pro tip: Scoop out the watermelon nicely so that you can eat the hollowed out bits later...don't scoop it out like a monster so it's too disgusting and unappetizing to eat later.
