pineapple mini vases

hello!
now that red white and blue day is over,
let's concentrate on other colors shall we?

like yellow, pink and purple.
as in pineapples.
in vases.

i know, i'm confused too 
but not when you see this:
they're an easy peasy diy craft that 
can brighten up a little corner of your room
with their unexpected colors.

and what's more, they're cheap to boot!
here's the simple how-to:

just paint in a diagonal fashion one way and then make 3 diagonal strokes the opposite way.
again, make sure the brush is DRY to get this effect.

just don't mind the small smudge marks 
you see in the pic by the brush. 
i was actually holding the brush with my teeth 
as i held the plant in one hand and 
took the pic with the other. LOL 
what bloggers do!?! :>O

 next, if you want:

i used sharpie paint markers cuz they're more vibrant.
and also cuz i luv 'em :)
all done.
hmmm...now i want a piece of pink pineapple...

    I love your "holding the brush with your teeth" story, sometimes 2 hands are just not enough are they?!
