Hi everyone, it's Jess from Everyday Party Magazine.  I am so excited to share this AWESOME DIY gift idea!  One of my close friends is going through a lot of changes in her life, and this year has really been a roller coaster for her.  As soon as I saw the pineapple die, I knew I wanted to use it to make my friend a gift. A little brainstorming and playing with my craft supplies and I had an amazing one of a kind gift for my sweet friend.

Below are the supplies you will need for this project:

Other Materials Used:

  • Wood Pallet (You can buy them pre-made from the store or make one)
  • Paint to white wash the pallet and a complimentary color for the text
  • Iron On Glitter Vinyl
  • Iron
  • Printer and paper
  • Parchment Paper
  • Chalk
  • Pen

I cut out the the iron on vinyl pineapple using the Sizzix Sandwich method; cutting pad, die, vinyl, cutting pad.

Once the pineapple pieces were cut, I set it aside and worked on the wood pallet.

I made my pallet using wood I had at the house, I cut two boards to size, and secured them together with cross pieces of wood in the back.  (I have seen pallets at Walmart and Michaels before) I sanded it really well, and then I white washed it with White DecoArt Color Stain.  Once it was dry, I sanded it again to give it a slightly more weathered look.  It was {finally} ready for the pineapple!

Place the pineapple vinyl where you want it on the pallet, shiny side up.  Cover with parchment paper folded in half.  Iron on with heavy pressure for about 45-60 seconds, making sure all the vinyl has stuck to the board.  (If you are using iron on vinyl on fabric, it will take much less time)

Print up the text on a sheet of paper and color the backside with chalk. (You could use a sheet of carbon paper too, but I had chalk on hand)  Place it on the pallet.  Trace each letter with a ball point pen hard enough to leave an outline to fill in with paint.  Download the text here, or design your own.

Carefully paint each letter.  I used DecoArt paint for this too, though you could use a paint marker.
