As I said watermelons inspired me for this months crafts, so the plaque for this month is a super cute watermelon!
This kit includes one piece of wood for the watermelon.  The center of the melon will come as a piece of red vinyl.  You can choose to place the vinyl directly on the wooden shape, or if you choose to do it as pictured above, then you will need to place the vinyl on the back side of a piece of red scrapbook paper and then simply cut it out and modpodge it onto the wooden watermelon.
This plaque can be reversible simply by doing a previous month or a future month’s wooden shape and vinyl on the reverse side.
The wooden stand is sold separately.

I am really excited about this next craft…the wheels in my head are just spinning with ideas for future months!
The board used to make this craft has grooves cut into it to make it appear as separate blocks stacked on top of one another.
I love the detail you get from this type of board.
Over all size is 5″ x 12″

This next craft is reversible, and was actually introduced to our product line last summer, but it is so fun and cute we are offering it at it’s original sale price again!
 The first side says “Picnics” and a super cute watermelon sits on top of the block. The watermelon comes with two pieces of wood. I modpodged scrapbook paper on the larger piece of wood, then I painted the top piece red, sanded it, and glued it to the other board. The top board is bead board, so it has the cute little grooves cut into it to give it more detail.
Then after summer is over you flip the blocks around and it says “Harvest” and you sit a cute little crow on top of the blocks.
The crow comes with 2 nails for the eyes and orange vinyl for the beak. I put my vinyl on the back side of some cute orange plaid scrapbook paper and then cut it out and modpodged it on, so my crow’s beak had a little bit more detail. (You could use just the vinyl though and skip that step.)
Over all size is 12″ x 7″
