A summer fruits as a table decoration for the summer
Radiant colours? Dragon fruit!
I have rarely seen a more stylish fruit than the pitahaya.
That shining pink of the dragon fruit, the light green leaves and the bright white, sweet pulp with the tiny, black cores. Unique, right?
You can quickly make a vase in the dragon fruit look yourself.
Take an old glass, for example, from a chocolate cream or apple sauce.
Paint is painted in neon pink with neon green and yellow as leaves.
First, paint the neon pink as the basic colour.
As always: work in a wind, rain and dust-protected place. Place your glass on a large piece of cardboard and Always keep in mind to protect your surroundings from the spray. Prepare your spray can and then spray evenly thinly. Tighten a glove. So you can turn your glass while painting by grabbing into the glass.
Then you cut out the leaves out of the paper and stick the sheet closely for your glass.
For the colour gradient, you paint all leaves neon yellow. Let it dry briefly. Then you spray the leaf tips with neon green. Now you remove yours template And already the dragon fruit vase is yours Table decoration for summer finished.

For example, the converted mixing palette of your acrylic paints or the Cutting mat of your Mr Beam.
Mix the brown tone from your acrylic paints, you can Your DIY pineapple vase want to have your table decoration. Since the cord is also sucking up, it should be a slightly larger blob.
Now put the piece of cord in your brown acrylic paint. Now the brush is used. Dun the bristles of the brush also in the brown colour and now hold it on the cord so that you can pull the cord through the colour and brush. So it is evenly wetted with the acrylic paint.
You always put the cord soaked with acrylic paint on the glass in the diamond pattern. Once all around. Since the acrylic paint has been applied significantly thicker, it also takes some time to dry it.
Now the grass in and you already have one Self -made pineapple for your summer table decoration.
And what do you need in summer under the cool, refreshing drinks? Coasters!
Coasters should not be missing from your summer table decoration.
