It’s thrift store makeover time and this month I’m sharing my Life is Sweet Wood Pineapple. I took a wood pineapple that I scored at my local thrift store for only $1 and turned it into a cute sign with some acrylic paint.
Life is Sweet Wood Pineapple
Here is what I started with. Our local thrift store has dollar days, so I scored this cutey for only a buck!
Life is Sweet Wood Pineapple Supplies:
- wood pineapple
- acrylic paint
- paint brush
So I played around with some fun fonts to create the look I wanted for the sign. I printed it out on regular copy paper and used painter’s tape to place it on top of the wood pineapple.
Then I took a sharp pencil and traced over the letters, pressing firmly into the wood. After tracing the letters, I pulled off the paper and you could see the letters pressed into the wood.
Tip: I recommend doing this in a well-lit room, it makes it much easier to see the pressed in letters.
Then I took a thin paintbrush and white acrylic paint and traced over the lettering to create my Life is Sweet Sign.
I just adore anything pineapple, so I am loving how this cute pineapple sign turned out. Here are some other signs that I’ve made:
