It’s time to get ready to refresh your space for Spring! This year I am apart of Hometalk DIY My Spring Blog Hop and my DIY project is how to paint a Geometric Pineapple!

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 for 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:

Instructions:

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.

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.

    I just made one for a preteen girl who wants to decorate her bedroom in a pineapple motif. But I also screwed hooks into the wood so she can hang her jewelry on it – added a little function to the fun! Thanks for the great idea!

    Kim, The pineapple is a winner! I am glad you shared a link because not everyone will find one at the Goodwill but if I ever do I will snag it for this project. A lot of cute and creative ideas on the hop. The potty planter cracked me up but it sure looks cute.
