DIY Pineapple String Art


People have been requesting that I do a DIY like crazy! I'm honestly surprised that I haven't done more, I do DIYs at home all the time! So I thought it was time I start listening to my readers. Recently string art has been super popular as home decor that you can purchase in stores but also as a Pinterest DIY. 

 Supplies:
  • Green, yellow, and orange string
  • A bright colored paint for the background, I used Tiffany blue
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • 78 nails
  • A hammer
  • Tape
  • Sander (optional)
  • 12"x12" piece of wood
  • Pineapple Template (at the bottom of this post)

 Step 1: I didn't take pictures of it but before doing anything I sanded my wood so I wouldn't get a splinter.
Step 2: Put a really thick coat of paint on your wood block. Let it dry over night.
 Step 3: Once your wood block is dry, tape the pineapple template to the wood board.
 Step 4: Hammer your nails into the pink circles on the pineapple template


 It should look something like this once you've put all of the nails in it.
 Step 5: Pull the paper straight up to remove it. Once you have removed the paper there might be a few pieces of paper that you might have to pull out from under the nails.
 Step 6: Tie the yellow string around one of the nails
 Step 7: Wrap the string around the circular part of the pineapple
 Step 8: Zig zag the yellow string around the circular part of the pineapple
Step 9: Once you have done your desired amount tie off the string on one of the nails
 Step 10: Repeat steps 8 and 9 with the orange string and do it again with the yellow string on top of the orange string

Step 11: Zig zag the green string around the top, there is no special way to do this, I just had to experiment with the way I wanted this to look. Once you're done tie it off.
And you're done!
Save this template to your computer and print it to use as a guide.


Luv Ya!

Life Lately Vol. 7

It has been an eventful couple of months for me! I have been so busy with school and fun activities with friends I haven't had much time to think about updating the blog. I thought it would be good to share a little life update with you.

Jadelynn Brooke is having a sale on all of their Fourth of July items so I am sharing a few of my favorite items featured in the sale.

Graduation Dress Roundup

For those of us who are seniors, graduation is right around the corner! This year flew by so fast and pretty soon I'll be in college. Today I am sharing ten dresses that are perfect for graduation. Five of the dresses are white dresses for those of you who like white dresses for graduation or who go to a school where a white dress is required and the other five are colorful dresses that I thought would be cute under your graduation gown.

Trend Tracking: Headbands

I'm not typically a girl who follows trends but since headbands have come back in style they're giving me all the Blair Waldorf vibes and I love it! Today I have rounded up a few of my favorite places to shop cute headbands. One thing I love about this trend is that it isn't expensive to shop, all of the items I linked are very inexpensive with the exception of the Anthropologie finds which fall on the more expensive side for an item like this.

Striped Sweater Round Up

Striped sweaters are my new favorite thing! I think at this point I own four... Every time I see one in the store I have to have it. I can't find the links to any of the sweaters I own so I thought I would round up a few that I found while online shopping that are now on my to-buy list!
