These watermelon crafts are perfect for summer

I have to admit, I don’t really love watermelon (the actual fruit). I just don’t enjoy the taste! But that doesn’t mean I don’t love watermelon in other ways

There’s something about the red and green with little black seeds that makes the cutest pattern when it comes to crafts! I squeal every time I see watermelon crafts, and my guess is if you are reading this post that you do too.

I once bought a house that had some green striped wall paper in the kitchen. I like red and decided to decorate my kitchen in watermelon theme. It has grown now from that beginning to 3 kitchens later quite a menagerie. I have painted some wood bowls to look like watermelon as well as wood plates, one with a chip that made it look like a bite out of watermelon. Love watermelon, the fruit and the decor. Thanks for the cute ideas.
