|completed watermelon craft projects|
- red construction paper
- black construction paper
- watermelon slice (real)
- green paint
- paint brush
- teardrop hole punch
- scalloped scissors
- black craft foam
|I used two different shades of green paint on this one.|
- Eat slice of watermelon and save the rind.
- Coat rind with green paint.
- Place rind paint side down on red construction paper and press firmly.
- Remove rind and discard. Allow paint to dry.
- Cut paper into shape of watermelon slice following green outline.
- Use teardrop hole punch (or scissors if you don't have a hole punch) to make black construction paper seeds. (I didn't try this, but you could also use black craft foam for added dimension.)
- Glue seeds to watermelon slice.
- Use scalloped scissors to make bite marks in the watermelon slice, if desired.
