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.
Gold Paint Pen
Green Scrapbook paper
Small wooden dowels
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?
