Watermelon Themed Picnic Signs

Picnics are a big family outing on weekends, so chances are you won't be alone in your outdoor space. By crafting a few themed party signs, you'll help guests find where they're supposed to be more easily. 

Watermelons definitely come to mind when thinking about picnics, so why not create a summery watermelon sign to direct your guests?

Create a fun graphic for the signs that represents your party theme. Our watermelon invitation from Pear Tree Greetings inspired a trail of watermelon signs leading to the family picnic area. You can also use the signs to help define your area at the park.

Follow these simple instructions for a sweet summery watermelon sign for your next picnic!

  • posterboard in black and white
  • 12 X 12 cardstock paper in white and lime green
  • 12 X 12 patterned cardstock in red
  • scissors
  • adhesive
  • permanent black marker
  • 3 graduated sizes of circular plates

Step 1: Using the graduated sizes of plates, trace around the largest one on the green cardstock, the middle-sized one on the white cardstock, and the smallest on the red patterned paper.

Step 2: Place the circles together, one on top of the other, and center them. Adhere the circles together.


Step 3: Cut the circles in half.


Step 4: With a black permanent marker, draw the seeds on the watermelon.


Step 5: Use a scallop-shaped punch to "take a bite" out of the melon.


Step 6: Adhere the white and black posterboard together, and then use adhesive to apply the watermelon figure to your sign.

Step 7: Add an arrow or other information if you need to. Signs can be attached to a wooden stake, or hung from trees or posts.

You're summer picnic is now complete with these watermelon themed picnic signs! Remember to spit out the seeds!
