A Paper Pineapple Summer Garland – what you need:

  • Scrapbook paper – preferably heavier card stock
  • Hemp cord
  • Glue stick
  • Acrylic paint, and a paintbrush

You can hang these garlands from your mantel, above your food table, or outdoors on your patio. I’m pretty sure this one will end up in my daughter’s bedroom eventually, she loves pineapple crafts and decor.

Print and cut out a pineapple, then using it as a stencil, trace around it on your yellow cardstock, and then just the top on the green cardstock.

Tip: I used PicMonkey to create a pineapple stencil for this project.

Using the glue stick, attach the green top to the yellow, then add a little extra glue underneath to attach the hemp cord. Just make sure you are using a glue that dries clear.

The last step is to dip a paintbrush into white acrylic paint, and then after wiping a little off (so that it’s not thick) create a criss-cross pattern on each of the pineapples.

Aren’t pineapple crafts super fun?! It’s all coming together!!
