How to Make a Fake Watermelon

Making a fake watermelon is a great way to add a unique and creative touch to your home decor. Whether you’re looking for something to spruce up your kitchen counter or want to create a centerpiece for your dining table, this craft project is sure to make an impression.

Materials Needed

To make a fake watermelon, you will need the following materials:

  • Styrofoam ball (size of your choice)
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • White craft glue
  • Black felt pen
  • Scissors
  • Green tissue paper
  • White cardstock paper


  1. Painting the Styrofoam Ball:

Begin by painting the entire Styrofoam ball with green acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

  1. Creating the Watermelon Seeds:

Cut small circles out of white cardstock paper and glue them onto the Styrofoam ball using white craft glue. Once all of the circles are in place, use a black felt pen to draw lines around each circle, creating the look of watermelon seeds.

  1. Adding Red Paint:

Use red acrylic paint and a paintbrush to add streaks of red paint onto the Styrofoam ball. This will give it a realistic watermelon look.

  1. Finishing Touches:

Finally, cut small strips of green tissue paper and glue them around the edges of the Styrofoam ball. This will give it a more realistic texture and complete the look of your fake watermelon.
