It goes without saying that I am obsessed with Pinterest. I love lurking around for a while (read: hours) and finding cool pictures to look at and projects to try. I like to keep myself busy crafting as often as possible because I find it to be very therapeutic, so when I go too long without creating anything, I enjoy finding simple DIY's that won't create crazy messes and will only take an hour or so to make.. It's fun to try what others are trying and figuring out what works for you. Saturday afternoon I had a decent chunk of time, so I decided to try out a pin I had seen a while ago. This citrus print DIY is so cute and perfect for Summer, and it's easy and (mostly) mess free!
For this project you will need:
-an assortment of fruits and/or vegetables. Your choice, I went with all the citrus I had on hand!
-craft paints in assorted colors
-white construction paper
Before you begin printing your fruits on your paper, dab your fruits with a paper towel until they are mostly dried out. Lightly coat with paint.
Press down your fruit on your paper for 3-5 seconds, and quickly remove. Tip: practice this a few times. My fruit was still too wet the first time, I put way too much paint on the second time, not enough the third time, you get the point. It does take a little practice. Repeat these steps alternating fruits and colors.
You'll be left with an awesome summery print for your wall! Easy, right??
