Lemons are such a fun way to decorate for summer! Here’s a quick and easy little project you can create using a blank ornament and Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Markers. It’s perfect for hanging in the kitchen, or anywhere you like. You can also make a larger version for the wall or the front door by using a large wooden circle instead! Here’s how to create your own.
round ceramic or wooden ornament
Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Markers (dark and light yellow)
White paint and small paintbrush
Coordinating ribbon & scissors (optional)
Step 1: Draw a dark yellow line across the center of the ornament, then draw four rounded triangles in the bottom half.
Color these in with your darker yellow marker.
Step 2: Color the edge of the bottom half of the ornament dark yellow.
Step 3: Color in between the triangles with light yellow.
Step 4: Use a fine tip black marker to outline the lemon slice and each triangle.
Also, add a few little seeds at the top.
Step 5: Use white paint to create highlight lines in each triangle.
Step 7: Tie coordinating ribbon on the hanger.

You can make your own variations of this project too, using the same technique, but green or orange markers to create limes and oranges in addition to lemons. Feel free to use your favorite punny sayings, or write anything you like! If you try this project, I’d love to see what you create! Make sure you’re part of the Amy Latta & Friends Facebook Group, where you can participate in our weekly show and tell thread to share your creations. Hope to see you there.
