Hi there! Happy belated Memorial Day! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend – we sure did. We took three of our monkeys camping for the weekend and fun was had by all. The weather was perfect for camping – warm days and cool nights. I hope to share a bit of our trip with you when time permits. Until then, I’m feeling summer coming on.
With Memorial Day behind us, I start thinking of cook-outs.. and fireflies.. and nights on the deck under the stars, and all the yummy foods that go along with summer, like strawberries, watermelon – I’m hungry just thinking about it all!
After everything I ate this past weekend, I think I might need to lay off the picnic food for a while. So, instead, I decided to make this whimsical, summer-ish, nearly juicy watermelon wreath for the front door, as a constant reminder that the days are getting longer!
This no-sew wreath was super easy to make.
For this project I used:
- 4 rolls of tulle, 1 each of white, kelly green, salmon pink, and light pink
- a wreath form
- a watermelon button
- black pompoms
- fabric stiffener
To make, I cut 24″ sections of my tulle and tied each section by looping in back of the wreath form and pulling through in a cow hitch knot. Continue adding tulle pieces, alternating colors.
