Pineapple Pumpkin

I know it’s fall and we should all be thinking mums and apple cider, but I just can’t quite let the pineapple go.  I made this fun pineapple washi tape print earlier in the year and today I am sharing my Easy DIY Pineapple Pumpkin! Pineapples are still my go-to DIY fruit of choice.

The first step is to clean off your pumpkin from any dirt or debris (this won’t be an issue if you used a faux pumpkin) and then get to spray painting!  My pumpkin took about 3 coats of paint, just like a piece of furniture might.

After your paint has completely dried, draw a check board pattern on your pumpkin with a gold paint pen.  My lines were not perfectly straight, but neither is a pumpkin!

Cut your green scrapbook paper into a pineapple leaf shape.  I hot glued the paper to a small wooden dowel and then stuck it into my pumpkin at the top.

The result is a fun fruity pumpkin, perfect decor for a party, a very large fruit bowl or sitting outside to scare away the (fruit) ghosts.

I thought an apple pumpkin might be kind of fun, too.  What do you think?  Should I give it a try?

  1. Found this on “Do Tell Tuesday” and was instantly drawn to it. I often decorate my rooms either shabby chic, or tropical, so crafts like this allow me to still decorate for Halloween without looking odd in my apartment! So cute 🙂
