DIY Wall Art - Citrus Stripes

I've got another project for you, friends!
 
It's bright, fresh, and fruity.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
You can use it as a wall art group too.
 
 
 
It's happy art
 
 and reminds me of
 
"ice cold drinks"
 
 
You'll need 3/8" plywood
 
cut into a 22' x 22" square.
 
Stain Minwax Early American.
 
Base paint white
 
leaving the edges without full coverage.
 
 
 
 
Tape stripes at 4 3/8" wide.
 
Before removing tape,
 
run a fine line of black paint along tape line.
 
 
 
 
 
Use a 16" diameter circle template.
 
Fill in with white primer then white paint.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is the citrus stencil shape.
 
 
 
 
 
Darker shade on right and bottom sides.
 
 
 
Green Stripes
 
 
 
Fun colors!
 
 
 
Yellow highlights
 
 
 
 
Wood burn citrus lines.
 
 
 
Sand raised line after wood burn.
 
 
 
 
Rustic
 
Beachy
 
Happy
 
Summer
 
Art
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
Pin It!
 
You could make them any size,
 
group them in any number,
 
or stand alone.
 
How about this design for the
 
top of a side table.
 
How would you use
 
this citrus punch!?
 
Happy Painting,
 
Deb
