I am bound to run out of ways to incorporate watermelons into DIY projects, but today is not that day! When I was browsing the dollar store a few weeks ago I spotted these vibrant paper bags in pink, orange and lime green. I knew they had to be mine because they would be perfect to hand out party favors in, but the plain bags were a bit boring. So when I started on my watermelon crafting kick I just knew I had to turn those pink bags into fabulous Watermelon Favor Bags!
- Cut a long piece of dark green tape and adhere it to the paper bag, lining up the edge of the tape with the bottom of the bag, wrap the tape around the entire base of the bag. Repeat this process with the lime green tape just above the dark green tape.
- Using scissors cut your black vinyl into small squares, these will be the seeds of the watermelon. Adhere the black vinyl squares randomly to the pink area of the paper bag.
- Fill your bag full of treats, candy and prizes!
This project is also a perfect party/craft activity for little ones and might I suggest making a super-sized version of my Mini Watermelon Piñata, then the kids could use the Watermelon Favor Bags they crafted to collect the piñata loot in!
