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.

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,

I appreciate that,

Adorable Deb, these are so fun!! I love the tip about painting the stripes and then adding the black line... you could really use that trick for a variety of signs! Thanks for the tutorial:)
