Hope you enjoy this Instructable!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
-cardboard. I used corrugated cardboard from a box
-fabric (for the fruit part of the pineapple. I used geometric gold print fabric)
-paint (for the leaves. I used gold paint)
- 2 paintbrushes. One for modge podge and one for paint (or just one brush and a way to wash it off)
-scissors that can cut the cardboard you have
-ribbon (for hanging the pineapples)
- duct tape or glue (for adhering the pineapples to the ribbon. Glue is more permanent and strong. I used duct tape because it was more convienent)
- modge podge (for adhering the fabric to the cardboard. I highly recommend this product over regular glue)
-pen for drawing your pineapple shapes
Step 2: Draw Your Pineapple
Use scissors to cut the shape out.
Step 3: Create More Pineapples
Step 4: Match Fabric to Each Pineapple
Step 5: Cover Pineapple With Fabric
Cover the fruit part of the pineapple with modge podge and place swatch of fabric in place over it. Smooth out any wrinkles and let dry.
Step 6: Cut Fabric Edges
Step 7: Modge Podge Flaps Down
In order to make the flaps stay in place, you can put additional modge podge under the flaps as well as painting the modge podge on top of the flaps. The modge podge will dry clear! (It's also just the back!)
Step 8: Paint the Leaves
Step 9: Make the Pineapples Into Banner
- your pineapples
- long length of ribbon
-duck/duct tape or glue
Tie a loop at one end of the ribbon. This is what you'll use to hang the banner.
Next, place the first pineapple close to the knot and place tape over the ribbon on the back of the pineapple so it sticks the ribbon to the pineapples
