Wash the blueberries and cut the watermelon into slices that are about ¾ of an inch thick, much thinner and they may not stay on the sticks.

Use the star-shaped cookie cutter for perfectly easy star shapes. Be sure to save the rest of the watermelon to use for a traditional fruit salad or to make a watermelon smoothie later!

Add a few blueberries to one end of the stick and then slide the stick into one of the corners for the stars. Aiming for the middle so it will be balanced and stay in place, try to put the stick at least a 1/3 of the way into the melon.

Store chilled, lying flat and covered. Stand them up in a sturdy small vase or glass when ready to serve.
