I was excited to get started on this watermelon. I started by painting the rind edges green, and then painting the inside red along with the beadboard. I used this fun striped paper for the rind on the front.
I used some black polka dot paper to put on my seeds. Then I glued the beadboard, seeds and rind all together.
I knew I wanted to tie some ribbon around this somewhere, and when I went to get ribbon out, this giant ric rac was calling my name! I also added the smaller black ric rac as well. I love the fun look the ric rac gives the watermelon to finish it off.
