Happy Little Watermelon

Yikes!!  Just after posting my Halloween advent calendar, I realized I still had a couple of last summer projects to post!  Do you ever have a pokey little project that seems so simple but somehow takes forever to wrap up??  Admittedly, most of my projects turn out that way!  So let's rewind just a bit... we still have 3 more weeks of summer.  That's plenty of time to enjoy the season!

Let me introduce you to my newest creation:  This sweet little wooden watermelon.  August is National Watermelon Month, so I feel quite festive to finally have this hung on my porch!  I had so much fun creating this!
I started out by spray painting the bare wood that I bought at the Wood Connection.  If I haven't yet declared my love for this store, let me do it now!!  I love that this store supplies all of the bare wood to let me go craft-crazy!!!  (And watch out, because I think I bought out all of their fall wooden projects!)
Next, I cut out some watermelon seeds from the scrapbook paper.  I mod-podged them onto the red piece.  After those dried, I gave the entire top a good coat of mod-podge to protect it.
Next, I gorilla glued the two wood pieces together.  It needed overnight to dry completely.   My hubby drilled some holes in the top, and I added some wire to hang the melon and curled up the ends around a pencil.  I thought the bow would be my finishing touch... but it just needed a little somethin' something.  

So the cricut saved the day again with a bit of vinyl!  Ah... that's better!
I thought about hanging this on my orange front door, but this little melon is brightening up my porch now instead!!  I absolutely *LOVE* this bright touch to my summer projects!!  
Have a super week!
