I suppose I have moved on from Spring-themed crafts and moved right into Summer 🙂 And nothing screams Summer more than watermelon! Here is a tutorial on how to make your own Watermelon Buttons using polymer clay. These would be a fun embellishment on a clip, headband, crochet hat, charm bracelet or could even be used as a magnet, pin, and more!
– Polymer Clay in red (or pink), white, green, and black.
– Clay tools OR you could improvise and use a toothpick/knife/razor blade/etc.
– Sculpey Gloss Glaze (and paintbrush)
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around, join to first SC (12 SC )
Round 3: Chain 6, *TR in 3rd chain from hook, DC, HDC, SC in last chain, skip one stitch from round 3 and join to next stitch with a Sl St, chain 6, repeat from * around until you have 6 petals.
Round 5: SC around each petal, making a Sl St in the previous slip stitches (between each petal).
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Loosely crochet a chain that will fit around head. Mine was about 55 chains for my 8 month old. Tie chain ends together. Sew button onto the center of the flower and sew flower onto the chain.
