Step 4: fill the semi circle with pink beads.

Step 5: cover the beads carefully with a piece of parchment paper and use an iron to melt the beads.  Tip: melt until the holes in the beads starts to disappear.  Repeat the melting process on the other side of the project as well.

Step 6: attach the jump ring to the top of the watermelon through a hole in a bead.  Tip: if all of the holes are melted shut, use a needle to poke a hole.  Attach a key fob to the jump ring to complete the project.

This little key chain reminds me of summer time and back yard barbecues!  It would be the perfect craft for an end of the school year celebration, watermelon themed party or summer camp!  Confession: my favorite part is that it glows in the dark!
