Mini Watermelon Bags

Yay, I have some fun news to share.  I have teamed up for another year as a 12 Months of Martha creative blogger!  I was so honored to be asked to join again.  Many of the posts I did with Martha Stewart last year were some of my very favorite projects.  So, I am quite excited to join in for another year of creativity using the ever amazing Martha Stewart craft supplies. Today I am kicking off the year with these adorable Mini Watermelon Bags.

They are great for spring, summer, outdoor parties or just for fun!

(My muslin bags were from Target’s dollar section, but the link above is a similar quality.)

If you know me at all, you know I do not like rulers and precision… it cramps my artsy style.  If you are with me on that, then this is the quick project for you!  I am all about organic free handing and don’t stress if all your bags look a little different – it’s better that way!

First, I cut a paper plate to fit inside my muslin bags so the paint would not bleed through.  Then, I selected two shades of green paint and three shades of pink/coral paint.

I started with the outer green rind first.  Use your darker green shade first and paint a simple arc pattern.  Then come back in with the lighter green color next.  I shared this picture on Instagram.  Was anyone able to guess those green arcs would be turning into watermelons??

Follow the same concept for the fruit portion of the watermelon.  I started with my neon pink first, then a rosy pink color and the center (or corner of the bag) I used a gorgeous coral color.

After the paint had dried, I used a black permanent marker to draw on the watermelon seeds.
