As I continue on with my watermelon and sunflower theme, this is the new watermelon garland I made last night to put on the front window by the door.
This was really easy to make. Make yourself a watermelon pattern - mine was approximately 7" wide x 3" tall. Bond your red prints to a heavy interfacing. Then cut your green rim pattern and use Heat and Bond to bond it to the watermelon half.
I used red cording and glued the finished watermelons onto it leaving about 2" of the cording in between. I then went thru my ribbon drawer and pulled out reds and greens and tied them on the cord in between the watermelons. I double-knotted them so I didn't have to worry about them coming undone.
The final detail - I glued on real watermelon seeds to each one. I had no idea watermelon seeds started out white. I would have preferred black but this was what I had.
This garland measures about 36" from watermelon to watermelon with generous ties on each end.
Now to my sunflower project for today.....
This was a super simple project!! I found this darling purse at the thrift store for $1.98 without the sunflower. I thought a pop of bright yellow would really add to it. Soooooo, I hot glued a yellow sunflower to it and now it is one of my favorites for this time of the year!
Till next time, Judy
