I usually just use a kitchen knife to carve the watermelon but this time I used pumpkin carving knife and it worked really well.
I wanted blue in the fruit salad to replace the fresh blueberries I was too cheap to buy so I chose the blueberry jello. I followed the jello jiggler recipe on the box but I also added 1 tsp of plain gelatin to the mixture. Be sure to soften the gelatin in 1 tbs of water first. Boil the amount of water according to the jello jiggler direction then add the jello powder in. Scoop a bit of the hot mixture into the soften gelatin then pour the gelatin back into the jello mixture. If you don't want to bother with the gelatin, you could just decrease the water amount a bit to make the jiggler more firm.
Pour the jello mixture into a 9 X 13 pan and chill in the fridge. I used little circle and heart shapes cutters to cut the jiggler but you can obviously use any shape you like.
For this fruit salad I had: Watermelon, cherries, grapes, mangoes, pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries and some limes.
The monster eyes are two thick slices of limes with jello jiggler but I think blueberries or the tip of a strawberry would work as well. The monster hands are made from pineapple tops and attached with toothpicks. I got to warn you though, the pineapple tops really didn't like the toothpick and it took a few try to get them to stay.
Important: Don't add the jiggler too early to the fruit salad or it will start to dye all the fruit blue.
