Life is Sweet Wood Pineapple

Thanks for Sharing!

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.

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.

Painting Life is Sweet Sign

Then I took a thin paintbrush and white acrylic paint and traced over the lettering to create my Life is Sweet Sign.

  1. Love that! I have the same pineapple and now I know what to do with it. Like 10 years after we got it in Hawaii. Thanks for the idea.

  2. Eeeeeee! I love this and you have given me an idea of my own for a wooden pineapple…just as soon as I can find one…omg…do you think my boss would understand if I said I needed to leave work immediately to go thrifting!? 😆


    1. If you’ve got an awesome boss I’m sure he/she would completely understand the need to thrift 😉 I’m glad you love it and hope you find your own cute pineapple!
