DIY Painted Wood Fruit Signs

I don’t know about you guys, but I am so loving fruit right now!  The fun bright colors of fruit are totally getting me in the mood for summer.  As I was lazily cruising the aisles of Hobby Lobby the other day, I had a great idea to create some painted wood fruit signs.  I wasn’t sure where I would put them, but I went straight the paint aisle to buy the colors for the watermelon.  The watermelon was the one I knew I wanted to make first.  I could just see it on the tablescapes of my summer parties.

I headed over to Lowes and bought one of these round pieces of wood.  I have no idea what they are called, but I asked a store worker where I would find a round piece of wood that was one inch thick.  He pointed me in the right direction.  There were two different sizes and I bought the bigger of the two.  It was 18 inches in diameter.

I then asked my husband to cut it in half for me.  Once it was cut in half I decided I should make 2 different fruit and realized I already had yellow and white paint to do a lemon too!  Yay!

To get started with the lemon, I sketched out what I wanted the lemon to look like.  Then I painted the segments with yellow paint.  I filled in the gaps with the white paint to make it look like a lemon slice.  As you can see, it’s no 100 percent perfect, but I love it!  Then I sanded it down to give it a distressed look.  You don’t have to do this step if you want it to look crisp.

For the watermelon, I just eye balled it.  Once I was done with the red inside and the green ring on the outside, I decided I needed a darker green stipe along the edge.  I just added a few drops of black paint to some green paint and it was the perfect shade.  I then used some charcoal colored paint to hand paint the seeds on using a small paint brush.  I wanted it to have a distressed look as well, so I sanded it down.  Just be careful because red paint likes to carry over into the other colors as you sand.

I used my very favorite BB Frosch wax and waxed both pieces to give it a nice matte finish and to protect it.

I think they turned out so cute!  Much better than when I first imagined them.  And they can go anywhere in your summer decor!

They look cute on a mantel, in a centerpiece or anywhere you want a pop of color.  I drilled some holes in the corners, added some wire and a cute ribbon and it’s perfect on my front door!  I love non wreath door decor!

I ended up making 2 sets of these and they are now hanging on my mom’s door and my mother in law’s door.  It was a fun an unexpected Mother’s Day gif that they both loved!
