Hello friends! Amanda here today. Thank you for stopping by the Pebbles blog. Today’s project is trendy, fun, easy, and inexpensive–my specialty!
I am still smitten by the pineapple trend. They are just so bright and colorful. They are perfect for summer and super cheery in winter. This DIY pineapple hoop decor would be perfect year-round!
Making the pineapple is as easy as it looks. I punched out 3/4″ squares, gently bent them on the diagonal and adhered them to the paper with tiny glue dots. You could make a mini pineapple with small squares, or a giant pineapple with extra large squares.
Making the leaves was just as easy as punching the yellow squares. I free-hand cut several spiky leaves and alternately arranged them starting at the top of the hoop. I added a few leaves here-and-there to add more texture to the leaves. I also bent the leaves slightly to add dimension.
And I couldn’t resist a cute pom-pom border.
To make the pineapple, start by punching or cutting several 3/4″ squares. You can also vary the size of the square depending on your project. Gently fold the squares to give them some dimension. Experiment with the arrangement and size of the pineapple inside of your embroidery hoop until you make one that works perfectly with your project. Free-hand cut some leaves to size.
Adhere pom pom trim to the back of the hoop with a small bead of hot glue.
