Lemon Love

Trending Summer Home Decor & More

My love of lemons has taken over this little work area along with my Rae Dunn collection.  Lemons are kind of a thing right now for summer decor, especially for the farmhouse style, in case you didn’t know!  I have embraced the Rae Dunn trend and I have started making some simple wood signs for the fall and holiday Christmas season to sell in my Mercari shop in the Rae Dunn inspired designs and basic letter font.  I’ll sneak peak those new signs and home decor soon!  Can’t wait to share that with you!

It’s been a while since I posted here as summer has been busy with trips in our new camper, 4th of July celebrations, and the transition from my Mercari shop from summer to fall and halloween.  See below a peak at some of the cute stamps sets coming soon for Halloween!

Tons of cute new stamps and dies coming for all you card makers, stampers, and scrapbookers!  I LOVE sourcing cute clear stamps and offering them at very reasonable prices.

Check out what is popping up new every day in the Mercari shop in cute fall and Halloween stamps and I occasionally organize and clean out my own personal craft stash (which is quite extensive) to offer some great scrapbooking and card making kits and lots, available to see by clicking here to browse >>> MERCARI SHOP <<<

Now for some stunning parties featuring PINWHEELS!

Pinwheels are perfect at any event, celebration or party and these Summer Designs coordinate to any themed birthday or baby shower.

This year I am only offering a limited supply of each set of designs in my shop- HERE

Pinwheels are perfect hanging on the wall behind the party table wall or draped across the front of the party table.

 Pinwheels were cleverly incorporated as favors but still as part of the party table background at this butterflies and pinwheels party.  How fun and easy to create!

Pinwheels are also ideal as table centerpieces – add them to vases or recycled bottles.

Pinwheels are also perfect as wedding decorations- use them as table numbers or signs at a wedding or large event.  Give one to each of your guests at the reception check-in with their table number in the center of each pinwheel and then each guest can take a pinwheel home as a memorable keepsake from your wedding day. 

Pinwheels are so fun on cakes and cupcakes too as toppers!

Cupcakes, polka dots and pinwheels go together perfectly!

Pinwheels and the beach are a great pair too for fun in the sun.

Tons of bright spinning pinwheels in all sizes are available in my shop – PINWHEEL PRETTIES

Watermelon Utensil Holder Tutorial

WATERMELON UTENSIL HOLDER TUTORIAL

Easy DIY Tutorial Craft Project

  Today I am sharing a tutorial for a diy painted watermelon utensil holder made from a glass mason jar.  I love creative ideas for displaying my utensils and cutlery at a summer barbecue or party.  This easy to make watermelon utensil holder is perfect for a summer get together or if you are planning a watermelon themed party!  Be sure to check out all my previous posts here on the blog for  – WATERMELON PARTIES!

Feel free to stop by and browse my Etsy shop for all your summertime party decorations too – The Party Fetti Shop

Let’s get started with making these fun utensil holders.  Gather your supplies.  I’ve made it easy for you to order online- simply click on the supplies below.

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

[amazon_textlink asin=’B0018N6IPY’ text=’Red paint’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’ymazonffiliac-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’da0446d6-8421-11e7-83f9-a528f843cdde’] (use multi-surface or glass paint)

[easyazon_link identifier=”B000XZVP24″ locale=”US” tag=”ymazonffiliac-20″]White paint[/easyazon_link]

Once you have everything you need to get started, lay down some newspaper to protect your table or work area where you will be painting.

First, wipe down your jar or jars with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils from fingerprints and any dirt.  Allow to dry for about ten minutes.

Start by painting the lower part or the bottom of the jar with your lighter green paint and allow to dry. Add a second coat when dry.

Paint the top of the jar with red paint. Paint a second coat of red when dry.

After your initial two coats in each color are dry, paint snake-like curvy lines in a vertical direction on your lower green section to create the appearance of the watermelon rind.  Don’t be concerned with how even these two colors are at the middle because you are going to paint over the meetup point of the two colors on the jar which will therefore clean it up.

Next, divide your red and green painted sections on the jar by painting a nice even and straight line with your white paint.

Add a few watermelon seeds to the top red area in a random pattern.  TIP: Rather than painting the seeds by hand, I prefer to use the bottom handle of my paint brush to make the seeds. Just dip the pointed end of your brush into the black paint and simply add a round dot.  Then, immediately, before your dot dries, flip your brush and pull the dot out to a teardrop shape with the tip of your brush.  As a result, this is much easier than trying paint on a perfect seed shape.

Finally, allow your painted jar to dry for a few hours.  Add your jute twine bow at the neck of your jar. Next, fill it up with your forks, spoons and knives.  Now you are ready to serve your guests.

These are so adorable for any summertime gathering!
