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.
How fun are these DIY lemon painted bags?
They would be easy little gift bags for your next summer hangout!
I heart these bags in a big way.
