WATERMELON SLICE DECORATION


Super easy and cute decoration craft here.  
WATERMELON SLICES 
from wood hunks.

I simply had the idea one day when looking at a stack of wood we have out back.
Here's some of how we stack it.


Well, a couple of the little end pieces were laying on the ground and it looked like a few hunks of watermelon to me.  


So I grabbed it, cleaned it off and painted it up like so.

I just used acrylic craft paint in the craft section of Walmart. And I just used any red and green I had on hand.



And after painting on some red like that, I took a sponge brush and dabbed on the green to the "rime" and had to water it down a it to get it to soak in good enough.




And in the pic, you can see I dabbed on some blackish brown for the seeds and came back in with a touch of white to make them stand out.






As you see, any shape of little hunks of wood will basically do.
Just paint'em up and sit'em on your porch in a cute tray!

Happy Crafting, see ya'll next time,

PRIMITIVE NIGHT LIGHT from Metal Food Can



I have been using/recycling these metal/tin food cans for a while now into my crafts.

Usually just by making them into a display can for magnets and such.  Here's a previous pic of how I used one:

 Tin food can as a display
The tin can also is great to hold extra stock inside!
But for today's craft, I used the metal/tin food can as the craft. I first had spray painted it black. Then I just punched the can with a nail, to make a shape of a star.

And I took a flat, large screwdriver and hammer and punched out the bottom of the can. Just big enough a hole for the night light bulb to fit through.
 Then I used some E6000 glue and glued in around the base of the can to secure it.

And after it sat and dried for 24 hours it was ready to go. That's it!


Happy Crafting & See ya'll next time,
