I laid my washi tape out and drew lines on either side of it.  Then, I removed the tape and drew in lines to make triangles within the two bold washi tape horizontal lines. The diagonal lines were my “cut lines”.  I did this to create as close as possible of a uniform triangle for my pattern.  It was fairly successful.

Next, I freehanded a pineapple shape and started placing the triangles with a very small space in-between them.

After the entire pineapple shape was covered, I carefully used my Xacto knife and cut along my original pencil line to create a clean image.  I also cut out the leafy portion of the pineapple from an old book.

I just love how it turned out.

I want to hang this in my new guest room + office, but goodness it’s getting crowded in there with all my new projects!

What do you think?  Are you yay or nay on the pineapple trend?  I mentioned this to my mama and she is a little hesitant to jump on board with this one.  I’m guessing give it six months and she’ll have them everywhere in her home!
