And naturally, there is nothing better than a grill in the garden to do it worthily! But we must first think about the devices to spend quietly hours, if not a whole day, outdoors. For example, adequate sun protection is an absolute must, as well as a kind of repellent against biting insects. Then, who plans to prepare their food outside will also need a grill, utensils and some barbecue accessories …

In other words, in the gallery to follow, you will meet not only forks, spatulas and brushes … You will see furniture and appliances, but also aprons of original design and ideas for themed snacks. Then you’ll come across alternative containers that serve food and drinks with great creativity.
Without even mentioning all the decorative accents full of fantasy and small pleasures pampering all the senses! Okay, they are not at all essential to your successful garden party but they are guaranteed to make it a lot more artistic, fun and quite memorable. In short, it is a jumble of totally mismatched objects that share the common theme of the festive grill. So, without further ado, welcome to the world of the DIY barbecue accessory and the matching decoration!

Some thematic grill decoration ideas inspired by seasonal fruits
And since we mentioned the decorative trends, we can not omit the great love of summer – the watermelon succulent ! Aside from the obvious possibilities of simply serving it perfectly chilled to your guests or incorporating it into your refreshing cocktails, you have the artistic opportunity to enjoy it as a central theme of your garden party and subjugate all the elements decoration. Here are some ingenious ideas for this purpose:
The first DIY watermelon project consists of a cute bowl that perfectly imitates the iconic summer fruit. Note that the barbecue accessory obtained is intended only for chips, popcorn and other dry foods of this kind because we will not use a sealing agent waterproofing, but just a glue varnish. To start, you will obviously need a natural wooden bowl similar to that illustrated by the first picture below:
The rest is more or less a step-by-step painting exercise starting with the pinkish red imitating the flesh. Then dye the outside with the light green and complete with some dark green bands without trying to delineate them clearly. Once the bark is finished and the watery pulp dried, draw the seeds and the case is in the bag!
