Instructions


Step 1. Gather your supplies.


Step 2.

Click the “template” button to download and print the template onto the card stock.


Step 3.

Starting with a small section of the watermelon, apply a liberal amount of the craft glue.


Step 4.

Fill in the area with the color of choice. For this large section of fleshy fruit, we added red melty beads. The beads don’t have to to be perfectly lined up, they can be spread out, as shown. Try and flatten out the beads to make sure that they all touch the glue.


Step 5.

To make a watermelon seed, add a small section of black melty beads.


Step 6.

Continue adding glue, red and black melty beads to finish the inside of the watermelon.


Step 7.

Add glue and green melty beads to make the rind.


Step 8.

Glue blue melty beads to the background area behind the watermelon.


Step 9.

To finish the picture, glue yellow and purple melty beads to make the tablecloth as shown.

Tip: Once the glue has dried, gently shake the picture to remove any loose beads that didn’t stick to the glue. You can fill in any areas that might be missing a few melty beads.
