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!

Bible Journaling: Isaiah 64:8

Being stuck in my house has given me the perfect time to spend Bible journaling and I actually really like the one I did today. 
I never quite know what I should share in these posts besides pictures of my Bible so today I'm sharing the inspiration behind my art, the finished product, and my outfit of the day.

11 Fashion Documentaries Free to Watch with Amazon Prime

I found my love for fashion documentaries in fashion design class my senior year of high school. While searching for a movie to watch on Amazon Prime the other night I hit the jackpot of fashion documentaries and wanted to share my findings with you. So far this is the only streaming service I have found that has a pretty good selection. There are more on Amazon but today I am just sharing the ones that are free to watch. I also haven't watched many of these yet so I don't know how good all of them are so hopefully they are all worth the watch.

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.
