kawaii watermelon last minute halloween costume

Step 1
Wrap the bottom of the T-shirt multiple times with Island Lime Duck Tape®, so that the tape covers about 3½" of the T-shirt from the bottom. 
Step 2
With the Sharpie® fine green marker, create darker vertical stripes, to mimic the outside of a watermelon.
 
TIP: Turn the Sharpie® marker sideways to draw thicker lines. Simply scribble back and forth horizontally, varying the widths of the stripes. The lines do not need to be perfect. Make the stripes approximately 2" apart. Allow to dry about ten minutes.
Step 3
Use a plastic cup, placing its larger end down on the shirt and tracing with a pencil, to draw the eyes. Paint the eyes with matte black fabric paint. Let dry. 
Step 4
Use the medium Spouncer™ to make the circle reflections in the eyes. Dip the Spouncer™ in the white fabric paint and lightly tap off to even paint. Press down and rotate in place on the eye to make a circle, and lift straight up from the shirt. Repeat for second eye.
 
TIP: You may need to repeat for a second coat. If so, let dry in between coats.
Step 5
Use the small Spouncer™ to make the smaller circle. Dip the Spouncer™ in the white fabric paint and lightly tap off to even paint. Press down and rotate in place on the eye to make a circle, and lift straight up from the shirt. Repeat for second eye.
 
TIP: You may need to repeat for a second coat. If so, let dry in between coats.
Step 6
For the mouth, use the smaller end of a plastic cup to trace a half circle with a pencil. 
Step 7
Go over the pencil lines with the black fabric marker. Draw watermelon seeds in random sizes all over the shirt, using the black fabric marker.
 
TIP: The seeds can be colored in with the marker, or you can use a paintbrush and black fabric paint.
Step 8
Wrap Funky Flamingo Duck Tape® around a plastic headband until it is completely covered. Use the black Sharpie® to draw on watermelon seeds. 
Step 9
Cut a piece of Island Lime Duck Tape® about 18" long and fold it over in half, sticking the tape to itself. Use the green Sharpie® to draw on darker lines on one side of the tape, as was done to the green duck tape for the t-shirt. 
Step 10
Cut a piece of Funky Flamingo Duck Tape® about 14" long and fold it over in half, sticking the tape to itself. Use the black Sharpie® to draw on watermelon seeds on one side of the tape. 
Step 11
Cut a piece of Island Lime Duck Tape® about 6” long, and cut the width of it in half. Fold each end of the green tape from Step 9 to the middle. Do the same with the pink tape from Step 10, and place the pink tape on top of the green. Pinch the two folded pieces of tape together in the middle, and tightly wrap the smaller green tape around both, to adhere them together and create a bow.
