How to Make a Watermelon Summer Door Wreath

Hi there! Happy belated Memorial Day! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend – we sure did. We took a quick weekend camping trip and had so much fun. The weather was perfect for camping – warm days, cool nights, oodles of gooey smores – and no bears. I hope to share a bit of our trip with you when time permits. Until then, I’m feeling summer coming on and I’m bringing it home with a watermelon door wreath tutorial!

Around this time 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!

But, 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 door wreath, as a constant reminder that the days are getting longer! This no-sew wreath was super easy to make. *Affiliate links are provided for your convenience.

How to Make a Tulle Watermelon Door Wreath

For this project I used:

 

 1. Cut 24″ sections of tulle and tie each section to the wreath form using a cow hitch knot. Continue adding tulle pieces, alternating colors.

2. Once you’ve completely covered your wreath form, trim tulle pieces to the desired length using scissors.
3. Affix pompoms in a polka dot pattern using glue – I used hot glue, as I’m an immediate gratification kinda girl – and allow to dry.

4. Add a bow if desired.

5. Apply fabric stiffener to tulle per product directions. Just as an FYI, I have been known to use hairspray and spray starch in a pinch!
 6. Hang. Enjoy a bit of whimsy! Happy almost summer!
