Supplies Needed to Make a Watermelon Craft Card

– Different colored cardstock – we used black, white, green, a lighter green and red.

Note: For the largest piece of paper – you will need a 12×12 size of the dark green paper to fit the template provided. Otherwise, you can use the next smallest semi-circle and make that the largest and work your way down from there.

Black Marker

– Large Googly Eyes

Glue – Regular glue or a glue stick. However, since this is mostly all paper – I like to use a glue stick for this project since it’s less messy.
