DIY Watermelon Wreath

While I was trying to come up with an idea for a summer wreath I thought of the fact that nothing screams summer quite like fresh fruit (namely watermelon) on a hot summers day.  The easiest way I came up with for recreating a watermelon was using deco mesh, which offered a perfectly whimsical touch to otherwise drab front door. I bought the deco mesh and the work wreath form from here

 {supplies: 21\” deco mesh in hot pink, lime + apple green + 24\” work wreath form}
 {bend your work wreath form into a football shape and straighten the wire branches}
 {unroll the mesh and bunch it together a couple inches in from the end}
 {secure to a wire branch on the outer ring. twist the wire branch around the bunch to secure}
 {to form the puff: gather 11\” length of mesh, bunching the end together and bring it back to the center for a fuller look}
{use the same concept above as you continue to add colors to the wreath}
{cut black teardrops out of felt and hot glue to the pink portion for seeds}
