Kick off summer by making this simple but vibrant watermelon wreath!
I am super excited to be a new member of the FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Team! You’ve seen me create things with their foam in the past (Faux Concrete Succulent Planters, Haunted House Cloche, DIY Faux Bois Platter), and I’m over the moon for their line of succulents. I can’t wait for you to see what all is in store for the next year!
This month’s challenge is all about wreaths. And if you’ve been around these parts for any amount of time you know I kind of have a thing for them. I’m pretty much addicted to making wreaths!
And I know I always say this, but this Watermelon Wreath is my new favorite! Isn’t it so fun to kickoff summer vacation?
FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam 16″ Wreath Form
Pink grosgrain ribbon – 8 yds
Lime green grosgrain ribbon – 8 yds
Green grosgrain ribbon – 4 yds
Wired plaid ribbon
Assorted black buttons
Pressed cardboard “welcome”
Americana Multi-Surface Satin paint in Pink Tropics
Hot glue gun
Wrap the other half of the wreath form with the lime green ribbon, again, with a slight overlap.
Cut the green ribbon into 5″ strips. Seal the ends by passing lightly through a flame. Layer green ribbon over the lime green ribbon, leaving ~3/4″ of lime color showing on front of wreath, matching the overlap of the lime green. Hot glue in place.
Top off the wreath with a bow from the plaid ribbon.
I can’t wait for our next challenge! Stay tuned next month to see which product the team will be featuring and all the creative ideas that go along with it.
