NOTE: Allow paint to dry fully before beginning with the next color.

  2. Paint a thin band of White on the leather semicircle. Let the first application dry, then add a second layer of White.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Fill in the rest of the semicircle with Red. Also paint the plastic headband Red.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a fine-tipped brush to add "seeds" in Black to the Red areas of the semicircle.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use E6000 Glue to attach the watermelon slices to the headband: Start with the center of the headband and glue one semicircle in place. Add the other two semicircles on either side of the center one, turned in the opposite direction.
