DIY: Pineapple Stamp Tote

DIY: Pineapple Stamp Tote

Aug 18, 2016

Sooo...the compressor in our air conditioning unit went out last weekend.  I'm not sure what a compressor is, but apparently if it's broken, your a/c unit just blows hot air.  It's been 90-something degrees every day, so, ya know, not cool. Ba-dum-chhh.

Thankfully it's starting to cool off in the evenings - can you believe August is almost over?! I adore fall weather just as much as the next basic bitch, but if I'm being honest, I'm sad to see summer go! So let's make it last a little longer shall we? With yet another pineapple DIY ;) (See another Pineapple DIY here)

You'll need:

A canvas tote bag of your choice (you can use a different material, but canvas works well with acrylic paint)

A rubber pineapple stamp (you can buy one, or Michaels has Rubber Stamp Making Kits where you can carve your own)

A craft sponge

Acrylic Paint (you can use fabric paint if you'd like)

Use your sponge to sop up some paint, and sponge it onto your stamp.

Add another color for your leaves (or don't - monochromatic pineapples are cool too)

Space your stamp out on your bag - be mindful of how many stamps you'd like to have.

Press down firmly, rotating your fingers around the edges to make sure everything is pressed down onto the canvas.

And voila! Repeat with whatever colors/designs you'd like! I chose to do metallic pineapples with different shades of green for the tops.

And that's it!

Enjoy your new pineapple bag poolside, and the last few days we have of summer (yea, I know we have like, a whole month left, but it feels like it's just slipping away!) How are you guys all hanging onto summer?
