Enjoy the warm sunshine and bring the tropics home to your house with this summer pineapple hand painting.
If there is one thing I love this time of year, it has got to be getting outside to enjoy the warm sunshine. I love to sit in our rockers on the porch and enjoy the cool breeze. But some days the heat is just too much to bear forcing me to be stuck indoors when it is so pretty outside.
I have found the perfect way to still enjoy the outdoors and even bring the tropics indoor with this summer pineapple hand painting. Your kids will even have a blast making it. Let’s be honest though. Kids can be messy and even us adults at times. No worries. Not only do I have a perfect craft for you to try yourself, but one that will also take care of those messes.
What is that you’re asking? The new all® Fresh Tropical Mist™ brings out the aroma of the tropics and delivers it right to your backyard. The new scent is so fresh but with the same trusted stain fighting power to fight those stubborn grass stains and even paint now that seem to just jump onto your clothes, especially during the summer.
I found mine while shopping at Walmart and just knew I had to have it. It is a brand that I can trust for great stain removal that is also very fresh. Plus if it reminds me of the beach, then I’m all for it!
Now let’s bring that fresh aroma of the tropics home with a summer pineapple hand painting inspired by the all® Fresh Tropical Mist™.
Summer Pineapple Hand Painting
The fun part of this craft is that you can spread out some newspapers on your porch or in the grass for your kids to get to work. If you are making one yourself, you may not need all these extra precautions or maybe you do if you’re like me. I seem to always wear more paint or ink than anything else.
I started by using a piece of plain cardstock and watercolors. Using a paintbrush, I made a simple watercolor design using shades of pink, orange, and yellow. I simply brushed the watercolors in a square or circular shape until all the colors were blended and no white space was left. Then allow time for it to dry.
Next I used acrylic stamps and an acrylic stamp block to spell out “Hello summer” and stamped it on the bottom of the paper using black ink. I wrote over it in black permanent marker to cover any flaws from the ink.
Next I painted the palm of my hand a bright yellow using acrylic paint and a bright lime green acrylic paint to my fingers except my thumb.
Press your hand onto the middle of the page for the pineapple. Then use an orange permanent marker to make extra details on the pineapple once it has dried.
And that’s all there is to it. Now you just need to hang it up inside and invite the tropics and summer indoors. Plus who doesn’t love a good pineapple? They are everywhere so why not make your own too.
