I was redoing a section my craft room wall and really wanted a fun pineapple to sit on a shelf. And what’s a crafter to do…but DIY ONE! (head over and see if you can spot it!)
Here is what you need!
- FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: egg
- FloraCraft Smooth Finish® Paintable Coating
- FloraCraft® StyroCutter® Plus or FoamCutter®
- FloraCraft® succulent picks
- Yellow paint from DecoArt
- Brown Paint from DecoArt
- Fine-Grit Sandpaper
You will want to make sure your egg and air plant pick are sized right and will look good together.
I took my cutter and sliced off the top (and rounded the edges a little bit) and then took off a little bit on the bottom so the pineapple will be able to stand without tipping over.
Then I just covered the whole egg with the smooth finish. This seals in the porous surface to make it paintable. After it dries I sanded off any rough edges.
I just pressed in some lines to give it the pineapple look. Since it’s smaller at the top than the bottom…the lines won’t be perfect but just try your best!
I took the brown paint and painted in all the grooves to give the pineapple some dimension.
Then covered it with yellow paint.
After it was dry I just pushed the air plant into the top!
I love how it turned out! Such a fun little pop of color in my craft room!
