What You Need to Make Fourth of July Star-Spangled Skewers:
- watermelon (preferably seedlesss)
- wooden skewer sticks (I love the ones from Dollar Tree)
- mini star cookie cutter (similar ones here and here)
How to make these festive fruit skewers:
1. Slice the watermelon into 1″ slices.
2. Use the star cookie cutter to cut watermelon into star shapes from the slices. Continue until you have plenty of stars.
3. Grab a skewer. Poke the skewer through the bottom of the star all the way through the top and slide down about 2/3 way down. Add 2 blueberries. Repeat.
