The third finalist in the National Watermelon Carving Contest was created by 13-year-old Taylor I. from Sterling, IL. According to Taylor’s proud grandmother, “Taylor loves to make different centerpieces and fruit bowls for summer parties. This past week-end was her grandpa’s 60th birthday party. They are both musicians and play the guitar, so she came up with the design, drew the pattern for it and carved it herself.”
The guitar took about two hours to create and is modeled after a Fender Stratocaster, so Taylor named her creation “The Stratomelon.” Rock on, Taylor!
