Free Printable Watermelon Banner

It's definitely watermelon season, y'all (my favorite!). I think the gorgeous colors of a freshly cut watermelon are absolutely perfect for a delicious (and fun) printable. This free printable watermelon banner is great for summer and fourth of July decor. Or, just print out several sheets, cut the pieces, and scatter your watermelon slices about for colorful and refreshing summertime decor. The possibilities are endless with this one. Download your watermelon banner below.

While I think most folks would use a watermelon banner for party decor, I'm more of a "let's just put this out the whole season long because it's cute" kind of person. This printable watermelon banner is going to be hanging in my house through September...who doesn't want a bunch of watermelon slices hanging on their mantel, no?. This printable is just such a SWEET one, y'all! Download your own free printable watermelon banner below.

While these particular watermelon slices are of the seeded variety, there will be no spittin' now, ya hear? Well...at least wait until you get outside (wink). The pinks and greens of this yummy banner are a feast for the eyes. I shared some cute hanging and styling ideas for your watermelon banner below, as well. Hoping you think this one's as delicious as I do!

As you can see from the photos, I added in a quarter of an inch white border around the slices of watermelon (once you print yours, you'll see the slight hairline that makes this a cinch to cut and include the border). I think the white border really makes the watermelon slices POP against any background you hang them against. If you prefer to have the pink and green go straight to the edge of each of your printed slices, simply trim the white border off.

How to Print and Use This Watermelon Banner:

  • Download your watermelon slices here or below (there are alternate download links available below). 
  • These watermelon pieces work best when printed on to white cardstock paper (regular paper will curl up on the ends once cut and hung).
  • Set your printer to its BEST ink setting and print as many sheets of watermelon slices as you like...the more you print, the longer your delicious banner turns out.
  • Cut each watermelon piece out just inside the green hairline border that goes around the perimeter of each slice. This will leave a nice white border, as I mentioned above. The white border helps the banner to really pop against any background. If you prefer, you can trim right along the pink and green watermelon to eliminate the white border altogether.
  • Hang this summery banner on some fun baker's twine (I love black and white baker's twine from Amazon to match those cute lil' watermelon seeds).
  • You can either punch holes in your watermelon slices to string them up or hang with miniature clothespins (that's the option I went with...because miniature clothespins are the cutest!). 
  • If you decide to go the hole punch route, I highly recommend a smaller, 1/8" punch, instead of a standard sized one. The smaller punch is less intrusive into the design of each piece.
