This isn’t just any pineapple, I found this super cute cutting board at my favorite thrift store and I’ve been holding onto it for just the right upcycle.


In my search of what to do with this sweet fruit. I saw pineapples in framed wall art, decorative pieces, fabric and well, on just about everything the last couple of years. I knew I wanted to paint the pineapple and/or make it into a chalkboard. That is until I saw geometric pineapple prints! That was the ah-ha moment when I knew just what my pineapple was meant to be!


So I know what your thinking, I would love to make one of these but, how am I supposed to find a pineapple cutting board? Well guess what there are tons online you can pick one from the link in the below supply list and paint your own! Let me show you how easy it is to do!


DIY Painted Geometric Pineapple


Supplies:


  • Acrylic Paint: Metallic gold, light, med & dark shades of yellow, light beige, dark beige, light blue, dark green, lime green, light & dark shades of teal and white
  • Various size Turn a cutting board into wall art Geo Pineapple

    Start with a plain pineapple shaped cutting board.


    Free Triangle guide for geometric pattern

    Download and print out the triangle guide page provided in the supply list above. Use the guide to cut out a triangle out of the cardboard. This will be your guide to draw the pattern on the cutting board. You will notice the L on one side of the triangle, this is the long side of the triangle. Take notice and draw the L on the cardboard triangle for future reference.


    Draw a geometric pattern on wood

    Using a ruler, draw a line down the center of the pineapple.


    Use a guide to draw geo pattern

    Place your cardboard triangle at the bottom of the pineapple and draw the outline of a triangle with a pencil. Flip the triangle over and draw the next triangle repeat for the rest of the pineapple.


    Use a ruler to check pattern
    When you are finished use the ruler and go over all the lines you drew and make sure they are straight.

    Paint colors in threes in pattern

    Now to paint, start with the dark teal and hand paint three random triangles.

    Repeat with all of the colors. I did mix a couple of colors with the white acrylic paint to make them lighter to add more interest to the color scheme.

    Note: If you are not great at hand painting the triangles You can always tape off each triangle with painters tape to get clean lines. Make sure each color is completely dry before covering the next one with painters tape or you could cause the paint to be removed when you remove the tape.


    Touch up lines as you go, let it dry and that’s it!I can’t tell you how much I love this super cool wall art! This bright and colorful pineapple is perfect for the spring refresh in my home!
