Amid the images of sandy beaches and Palm trees seem to be a surplus of pineapples sponsoring a tropical paradise. I decided to bring a little tropicana into the home with some DIY pineapple thumbprint art. These guys aren’t getting me any closer to the beach, but they sure look cute.
(While this could be a great DIY to do with kids, my boys are often hesitant to get their hands dirty and wouldn’t oblige.)
I used a handful of acrylic paints as the medium, and used some canvas paper to paint on. I put a bit of each on a plate (a paper plate means zero cleanup) and created new color combinations as I went. In addition to the easy cleanup, I love that with this method of “painting” it was near impossible to mess up. Each “eye” of the pineapple is a thumbprint, and I did the crown by smearing the paint in an upwards motion with my thumb as well. No paintbrush needed.
