Watermelon Place Cards DIY

Did you know watermelons are 91% water? You will only need a cup of water to dip your paintbrush in for these watermelon place cards. Perfect for National Watermelon Day – August 3rd! These could also make a festive garland – instead of putting a name on the cards, just fold them over some string and use tape or glue to secure. Happy Watermelon Day! (PS – Watermelon favors!)
