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’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!
They are such a fun and impactful way to add to your home decor.
And I know I always say this, but this Watermelon Wreath is my new favorite!
Isn’t it so fun for 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.
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.
I used two different sizes of buttons.
Once dry, hot glue to front of wreath.
Top off the wreath with a bow from the plaid ribbon.
Isn’t it so bright and fun??
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.
>> See where I party! <<
