Owls, Chevron, Chalkboard, these are just a few trends that have come and are slowly heading out. Ready for the next huge trend? PINEAPPLES. Yes, that’s right. Pineapples are making an appearance all over the place, from necklaces, to Easter eggs. So today I’ll be sharing how to jump on this trend by making a Pineapple Washi tape print.
An assortment of washi tapes in shades of oranges + yellows
Pencil + Xacto knife
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!
