Kick off summer by making this simple but vibrant watermelon wreath!
In the past I was a member of the FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Team! I’ve created a lot of fun things with their foam in the past (Faux Concrete Succulent Planters, Haunted House Cloche, DIY Faux Bois Platter), and I’m still over the moon for their line of succulents.
I created this wreath as one of their monthly craft team challenges. And if you’ve been around these parts for any amount of time you know I kind of have a thing for wreaths. I’m pretty much addicted to making them!
And I know I always say this, but this Watermelon Wreath is my new favorite! Isn’t it so fun fun summer?
I’ve put together a quick video to show the step-by-step process to make the watermelon wreath, but you can find the stand alone photos on through the post.
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.
