When I think of the perfect summer day, I think about sharing slices of watermelon with my family in the backyard after a long, hot afternoon playing in the sun. Since watermelon is my kids’ favorite summer snack, and a pretty wreath is my favorite decoration, I was inspired to make a “watermelon” wreath! I’ll hang it on my door all summer long as a bright welcome. Oh, and guess how much I spent to make this? $3! I’ll let you in on my secret: plastic table covers from Dollar Tree. It’s one of the most easy and innovative crafting hacks I’ve tried yet (check out this football-themed wreath I made in the fall using the same technique). Learn how to make your own… no matter how you slice it, this wreath idea is a real juicy one!
Watermelon Wreath Essentials:
- Wire Wreath Form
- Pink or Red Plastic Table Cover
- Green Plastic Table Cover
- Black Permanent Marker
Wrap Up Your Watermelon Wreath:
- Unfold the table covers on a flat work surface and use your scissors to cut them into 2×6″ strips.
- Loop-knot green strips around the outer wire rim until the wire is completely covered.
- Loop-knot pink or red strips around the three inner wire rims until all of the wire is covered.
- Use your permanent marker to draw black watermelon seeds onto the pink or red strips. Scatter the seeds to make it look like the inside of a watermelon!
- Fluff the plastic strips until it’s formed to your liking, then hang on your front door for a mouthwatering watermelon wreath display!
