Pineapples for the Summer

Homemade gifts are sometimes the best gifts especially when the person on the receiving end will appreciate it. I was looking for a gift to give to my friend for her 25th birthday and I was having hard time because I always want my gifts to be thoughtful and come from the heart. I know my friend loves the crafts store Michaels so I went there to get some inspiration! While there I remembered my friend kept pointing out pineapple pillows and tropical decor(previously when we had gone). So, I said I’m going to do something with a pineapple! I saw the wooden pineapple(which is actually kind of heavy, solid piece), then found the cursive letter “A” wooden insert, got some wood glue and glued both pieces together. I knew my friend loved hot pink so I picked that paint color for the “A”. I decided on traditional pineapple colors, green and yellow, then chose white as the inside of the circle around the “A”. I had fun painting. I bought the flowers to add some dimension and more visual interest to the piece, and glued those on too. My friend absolutely loved this gift. I felt accomplished and proud that I had made something special for her. What’s even better is I bought sponge paint brushes, paint, the pineapple, the cursive “A” insert, and the flowers for under $16. My friend plans to hang this in her house 😃 Yay! @michaelsstores
