I kind of have a confession to make, this awesome pineapple art was initially an intended gift for my sister Sierra (you may remember her obsession with pineapple, well we all love pineapple). I found the mold at the thrift store and knew it had potential.After I sprayed painted it gold and put it on some wood I suddenly became selfish. The husband solidified this when he said that he actually liked it (he is often a skeptic at first of my brilliant ideas). The fact that he liked it made it harder to giveaway, sorry Sierra. Don't worry, I had a second brilliant idea in mind for her also involving a gold pineapple (will be on the blog soon enough), so she didn't lose out.
DIY Pineapple Mold Art
Pineapple Jello mold (you can crazy enough find a vintage one like mine on etsy or ebay)
gold spray paint
||1|| Spray your pineapple mold
||2|| Sand your pieces of wood. You can stain them, but I liked the complete natural look
||3|| On the back of your wood with the wood glue, glue the two pieces together and let dry. We clamped the two pieces together to try to have a better seal.
||4|| After the glue has dried, put a nail in desired place on front and hang your pineapple
