Please tell me I’m not the only one that buys things and has them sit around for a year before I finally get to them, I know I can’t be the only one who does this. I bought this watermelon from The Wood Connection last year, and I finally finished it yesterday. It seems like lately when I sit down to create it takes me longer than it used to. It’s that or I just don’t have the time to create like I want to anymore. 🙂 I’m just glad to get the time to create when I do!
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.
I love how this turned out and I’m excited to have it up in my house! My little boys are loving it too. 🙂
Have you started decorating for summer yet, or are you still enjoying spring? I’m still enjoying spring, and I haven’t taken my spring stuff down yet, but I’m sure glad to have started on the summer decor already. 🙂Linking up to some of these parties.
