Watermelon Themed Plastic Forks Tutorial

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I love the small details at parties that pull a theme together, so for the Watermelon Pool Party, I decided to turn plain plastic forks into cheerful watermelon-themed ones.

It takes only seconds--seriously, when I made the video, it turned out to be something like a 10 second tutorial.  But aren't they adorable?

It's definitely more fun to eat watermelon with a watermelon fork.

Like video tutorials?  I made one of those!

Watermelon Decorated Plastic Silverware Tutorial

These plastic forks decorated like watermelons are so quick and easy to make.  

Materials for Watermelon Themed Plastic Forks:

  • craft glue
  • plastic forks
  • green glitter
  • black permanent marker

Simply use a paintbrush to coat the end of the fork with glue, and add green glitter.  I used the extra fine glitter in Peridot from my Martha Stewart glitter set.  Shake off excess glitter, and draw seeds on the fork with a permanent marker.

Ta da, watermelon fork!  I just love it when projects turn out like I hope they will when I come up with an idea.
