Using egg shaped foam balls from Floracraft® we began by compressing the larger end on our craft table to flatten the bottoms and allow them to stand upright. We then used our cutting machine to cut three metallic sheets of the little golden shapes to decorate our two pineapples. We also cut four green metallic pineapple leaves for the toppers. You can find the SVG file for both below. Starting at the bottom of the foam egg, glue the shapes on in layers, working around the foam egg as you go. The toppers are made from folding the two green pieces in half and gluing the two folded pieces together with a toothpick between. Slide the toothpick end into the top of the pineapple and you are done! Another option for the green tops on our DIY pineapples are from an assortment of air plants, also from our friends at Floracraft®, or you could use live air plants.
