Watermelon Wreath RingWhen 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!
