How to make a watermelon

Mod Podge watermelonI’m going to be honest, I’m not fond of the taste of real watermelon. It turns out, however, that I do like fake watermelons – decorations such as this one above by Alison at How Does She. It turns out that it’s National Watermelon Month, and I think we should celebrate. I like the kinda cattywompus slats and flower. I’m kinda cattywompus too, so I can relate. Visit here for the tutorial.

    I AGREE! I ALSO am not a fan of real watermelon, though I like watermelon candies and such. But the real thing is so… bleh. Just drippy annoying red water. :)

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks for popping by my blog. I’ve been over here a ton of times, and I’m flattered. I rarely comment because I figure that like YongHouseLove, you’re swamped with fans, but just know I am definitely one!

    Just when you think you have seen every version of a watermellon…I love this and we are so fortunate to have so many talented crafters out there to inspire us…along with the internet to link us all together….smiles from
