DIY Painted Lemon Bag

I am quickly becoming obsessed with painting things on mini bags.  Last year I painted Mini Watermelons and they were such a hit!  Then, earlier this year I gave Peony Bags a try and you all loved them.  So today, with summer temperatures in full force, I thought a refreshing DIY Painted Lemon Bag would be perfect!

These lemons bags are the easiest to paint and I am so excited to share my step by step directions for you!

Using your lightest yellow color, loosely paint a lemon shape in the bottom corner of your bag.  I just painted the basic outline, there is no need to fill it in.

Using your darkest yellow color (almost an ochre color), create a shade on the bottom of your lemon.

Next, using your cheeriest shade of yellow, fill in the lemon’s center.

The leaves are next, which I think really make these lemon bags stand out!  I used two different shades of green, but you could easily go with a more standard leaf green color.

After the paint had dried, I used a black sharpie to add some detail.  Small black dots on the upper corner of the lemon… because black makes all things better.
