Nothing says lazy days of summer like a slice of watermelon. This watermelon tulle wreath for your door will add a bit of whimsy and fun to your summer decor.
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!
RELATED: ALL THE WREATH CRAFTS
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. Please see our disclosure statement for more info. Thanks for support KnockitoffKim!
How to Make a Watermelon Tulle Wreath for your Door
TIME TO MAKE IT: 1 hour
- Four rolls of tulle, one each of white, kelly green, salmon pink, and light pink
- a wreath form
- a watermelon button
- black pompoms
- fabric stiffener
CUT AND ADD TULLE SECTIONS
Cut 24″ sections of tulle and tie each section to the wreath form using a cow hitch knot. Continue adding tulle pieces, alternating colors. Once you’ve completely covered your wreath form, trim tulle pieces to the desired length using scissors.
ADD POMPOM WATERMELON “SEEDS”
Once you’ve completely covered your wreath form, trim tulle pieces to the desired length using scissors. 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.
SET AND ADD FINISHING TOUCHES
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! Add a bow if desired.
HANG YOUR WATERMELON WREATH
Hang. Enjoy a bit of whimsy with your new adorable Watermelon tulle wreath! Happy almost summer!
