Creations, Watermelon Chargers

Last summer we painted watermelons




and made some fun glasses


watermelon rum


Let’s paint some watermelon chargers




$2 white chargers from Hobby Lobby




A lazy susan is great for painting dishware, spin and go




A mix of pink and red makes a pretty watermelon color




Yellow and green for the rind



Put the paint in a small well next to each other and let it blend on your brush.  Use a flat square brush and make short overlapping strokes all around the edge




When pink is dry




Add some seeds with short black random strokes

    Did you paint the small trays also? Where did the small watermelon oblong bowls come from?
    Great projects.


    • hi Judy, No I didn’t paint the trays, I got them several years ago at Old Time Pottery and the bowls I’ve had forever, sorry! I have seen a bunch of watermelon stuff at Christmas Tree Shoppe, so try there if you have near you, or just paint your own! >

  12. Hi Jenna, You make it look so easy but I know from experience that somehow my creations in paint don’t look quite the same! I will enjoy yours for now! Can’t wait to see the tablescape. Linda
