The next ingredient is of course - the watermelon. Get the biggest one you can find, but narrow, so that the watermelon has good balance and also so the juice can easily come down.  Tip: Get 2 watermelons, because you may make a mistake on your first try!

Now take out the insides and put them in a bowl. Use a knife and table spoon, and make sure the shell remains intact.

Create a small hole in the base of the hollowed out watermelon. Make sure you've emptied it completely first, or you'll get sticky juice all over the place.

Now insert the hollow piece through the hole you created. Make sure the hole is as small or smaller than the piece. If it's too small, just gently cut with a knife until you can fit the piece tightly without space between it and the watermelon.

Use the plastic wedge to make sure the piece sits tight and doesn't move.

If it isn't completely sealed, use plastic wrap or a plastic bag to seal the opening of the faucet as tight as possible.
