It’s hard to believe we are 3 months into 2018, but on the bright side, that means spring time vibes and I AM READY! Last week I shared my spring tablescape with you, which featured my current springtime obsession of pineapples. And this week I am featuring yet another pineapple in a fun, DIY wreath. It was so easy, and I am going to show you how to make your own! I even made a video for you, so be sure to check it out at the end of the post!

I made this wreath very similarly to how I made my Faux Fur Christmas wreath. There was no sewing or power tools involved, not even a hot glue gun! I’m telling you, it is simple. I chose a pineapple as the centerpiece of my wreath because I wanted it to go with my spring/summer doormat, but you could use something else if pineapples are not your jam. To make this wreath you will need the following items.
Step 1 – Use 3 straight pins to attach ribbon to Styrofoam wreath form.
Then tightly wrap the ribbon around the wreath form.
I needed two spools to cover my 16 inch form. When I got to the end of the first spool, I used 3 more straight pins secure the end of the ribbon. Then I overlapped it with the start of the next spool to hide my pins. Make sure your pins are all on the back side of the wreath so they are not seen.
Once the whole wreath was covered in ribbon, I used 3 more straight pins to secure the end to the back of the form and cut off the excess.
Step 2 – Paint the pineapple. I wanted a colorful pineapple to go with my doormat, but I could not find a pre-finished pineapple in the colors I wanted, so I decided to paint this one I snagged at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. This step is totally optional. This is what it would have looked like if I had not painted it.
I mixed my own colors with the basic craft paints I already had. First, I added some yellow to the chevron stripe that was previously white.
Then I painted the brown stripe a coral pink color. I had to do multiple coats to cover the brown.
I then outlined the top of the pineapple in black and painted the triangles to match.
Lastly, I painted the middle stripe an avocado lime green. If you like this color, I would recommend starting with yellow and adding green and white. I first tried to make it by adding yellow and white to green, and it was just too green.
Step 3 – Attach the pineapple to the wreath. Once the paint was completely dry, I positioned the pineapple on the wreath. I tied fishing line to the back of the pineapple on the picture mounting hardware it came with.
I looped the line around the wreath and tied it in a knot.
Step 4 – Add ribbon to hang wreath. I used some leftover black ribbon I had on hand. I strung the ribbon around the wreath, through the picture hanger and tied it in a knot. This covered the fishing line I used to attach the pineapple.
Then I cut a second piece of ribbon and looped it under the first piece of ribbon to act as the hanger for the wreath. You will want to measure this to be the appropriate hanging length before cutting and tying it.
Step 5 – Hang wreath. I chose to hang mine inside for now because we live in Colorado and almost every year we get snow in May. Despite the fact it has been in the sixties, I know, winter is not over. I do plan to hang it outside once I can be more confident we won’t be getting anymore snow 🙂
See! Wasn’t that easy!? No sewing, no gluing, and no power tools! Heck, you don’t even have to paint it if you don’t want to!
You could easily do this in any color combination. The possibilities are truly endless!
