Carving pumpkins is a classic Halloween tradition, but don't limit yourself to silly faces or spooky pumpkin designs. This year, we're trying something new. Give a tropical touch to your decoration with a Halloween pineapple. However you sculpt it, this Jack-O'-Lantern pineapple is a different decoration that will make a remarkable impression. We'll show you how to sculpt it in three easy steps and in under 30 minutes! So, don't delay and discover our superb idea!
Halloween pineapple - how to achieve the 2020 decoration trend?
It's almost Halloween and the Jack-O'-Lantern is a genre classic for Halloween. So, we cannot prepare the decoration for this holiday without sculpting at least one fruit or one vegetable. So follow our detailed instructions for an extraordinary sculpture, because this year, we have decided to place our candles in pineapples. And here we are!
Materials to get:
- A pineapple
- A fruit knife and a chef's knife
- A permanent marker
- A pineapple peeler or a Parisian spoon
- A small bowl
- A small LED candle
Step by step instructions in 3 easy steps:
1. Cut the pineapple lid 3-4 cm below the fruit leaves.
2. Hollow it out using a pineapple peeler or a Parisian spoon. You must form a "container" as shown in the photo.
3. Using the marker, draw your favorite Halloween face and gently cut the patterns. The process is just like carving a pumpkin, but much easier because the pineapple rind is thinner and softer.
And now, here is the DIY tutorial video:
Get out of the ordinary with this idea that will save you time. The result is rather surprising and will have the merit of bringing a little exoticism to this month of October which is generally cold and quite rainy. So, it's up to you! But before you start, take a look at our tips for making this themed decoration faster and easier.
Tips and advice to make your job easier
1. Choose a pineapple that is not overripe. Otherwise, you might end up with a sticky mess while preparing the lantern.
2. Place newspaper or cloth on the table to keep it from the juice of the pineapple. Afterwards, it will be much easier to clean the surface. You can also use a plate, but be careful because it will become more or less slippery when the pineapple juice starts to flow.
3. To cut the top, use a chef's knife, but to cut the patterns (eyes, nose, mouth), use a fruit knife or carving knives. The latter are smaller and therefore they are more harmless.
4. It is recommended to place the LED candle on a small dish or bowl to keep the batteries dry inside the fruit.
5. To keep your Halloween pineapple fresher for longer, store it in the refrigerator when you are not at home and it is not displayed as a decoration.
How to decorate the house with a Halloween pineapple?
It's the end of Halloween pumpkins, threatened by this tropical fruit! Perhaps ?! But still, it's a good opportunity to tell this little story with the fruit and vegetable in question. Carve a Halloween pumpkin with a terrified facial expression and right next to it, place a creepy and monstrous pineapple. You can add some ketchup to mimic blood and stick a paper knife on the pineapple. Great, no! It's a composition that will certainly crack the Web, because the Jack-O'-Lantern pineapple is a trend at the moment. So far there are over a thousand posts on Instagram with the tag “PineappleJackoLantern”.
We love the idea of a tropical Halloween. So, replace the pumpkin with a pineapple for a Jack-O'-Lantern that's more modern than ever. You can also associate it with the child's Halloween costume or with a costume that brings the spirit of Hawaii, Mexico or Cuba.
Prepare a Halloween composition from various fruits and vegetables. You can use watermelon, melon, peppers, apples, or the good old pumpkin. Create super scary or laughing faces inspired by the famous emoticons. For a cool and pop look, put colorful wigs on top of the lanterns.
Decorate the Halloween table with a Jack-O'-Lantern pineapple. We know that Halloween appetizers are quite interesting for children as well as for adults, but the decoration for this holiday is never too much! So, light up the table with this unique and unusual lantern.
Brighten up your patio or balcony with some Halloween lanterns. You can use various vegetables and fruits, as shown above, or bet on the 2020 trend - Halloween pineapples. Like this, you will create a festive and magical atmosphere without much effort. Prepare a Halloween cocktail with the rest of the fruit and some candy corn cookies and you are ready to invite your friends.
Be creative and add different accessories to your Halloween pineapple. Turn it into a bat by gluing a toothpick on black cardboard for the shape of the wings. Stick the toothpicks into the fruit and that's it! You can also make a cute girl by putting a DIY flower crown on top of the pineapple or some dried autumn leaves for a more thematic decoration.
How do you use the leftover fruit?
This is the best part! It's a zero waste Halloween decoration! Do not throw away the fruit, because there are a thousand and one ways to use it. You can eat it fresh, but you can also make a slimming smoothie or a fruit pizza. So take the opportunity to buy a few as the health benefits of pineapple are numerous and besides, it is a super delicious fruit.
