One of my favorite summer treats is watermelon! I am convinced that it is the perfect food, sweet, juicy, messy, and pink, lol.

So I decided to make my very own watermelon bag to wear and show the world my love of watermelons.

  • Bag- I got mine from Sammy dress about a year ago, but here is a similar one on Amazon: Bag
  • Paint- I used Folk art acrylic paint, but any acrylic paint should do the trick: Paint
  • Paint pen- for drawing the seeds: paint pen



Here is the bag before any painting. It is a good bag and just fine the way it is, but I was determined to have a watermelon bag, lol.

I found these 3 great colors from Folk Art in Pink Melon, Citrus Green and Classic Green. I thought they were the perfect watermelon color!diy watermelon bag

but before you start to paint measure your bag. You to make sure that you have about 2/3 of be bag in pink and the rest in green. But this is just a guess, use your eye to make a good judgement as to how much of each color.

Then start painting. I started with the pink then went on to the greens. I painted in broad strokes and left the strokes in each of the colors as I painted. I didn’t want it too blended, I was going for a casual vibe. You can always blend more if that is  your style.

You can leave it with out the seeds, but I thought the bag needed them. I just painted them on using a paint pen.

I am loving how it turned out! What fruit bags are you going to make this summer?
