If I was Weird Al, I would make up a parody called #WhoLetThePineapples out. ;)  I’ve had quite a bit of my own fun on Instagram creating silly hashtags.   Talk about a blast from the past!  One of my favorite things about Summer is all things fruity – especially pineapples!   Speaking of pineapples, you would not believe how simple this DIY spray painted pineapple was to create.  Seriously, just spray away with your favorite colors of choice and you’re ready to rock!  I love how the spray paint makes the natural texture of the pineapple pop.

I am still slightly obsessed with pink and gold, so I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to incorporate these ultra-girly colors!  I used Candy PinkGold Spray Paint from Rust-Oleum.

These pineapples are perfect for crashing the following parties: Birthdays, Graduation, Bachelorette, Baby Showers, Weddings, or even just to celebrate the everyday!  Just imagine, your honorary guests will probably always think of you whenever they see pineapples after these bad girls make a grand appearance at your next bash! You can use pineapples for your table centerpiece  to tie in the theme or even add in a fun pop of color!   You could also add confetti or sequins on a white table cloth – the sky is the limit.

DIY PINK & GOLD PAINTED PINEAPPLE TUTORIAL

MATERIALS
  • A perfectly plump pineapple
  • Spray Paint of your choice (I used Candy Pink & Gold Rust-Oleom)
  • Acrylic paint to match your spray paint
  • Paintbrush
INSTRUCTIONS 
  • Start by spraying the top leaves of the pineapple and allow them to dry completely.
  • Don’t be afraid to get a little spray-happy. Once you’ve sprayed enough layers to get the desired color, wrap the leaves in a plastic bag and spray paint the base of the pineapple. Remember – fewer sprays create a lighter color; more sprays create a darker color!
  • Let the pineapple dry, then add the finishing touches: use a paintbrush and acrylic paint  to touch up the crevasses of the pineapple that may have gotten missed during the spray-painting.
  • That’s it.  Simple :)  Try not to dry your pineapple in direct sunlight – it makes the paint sticky!
