Introduction: Pineapple Luminaria

Recycling pinapple waste into a useful luminaria for traditional festivities was a surprisingly simple and sweet smelling alternative to the usual paper bag candle luminaria I was inspired to create this new year. By combining a few simple tools from the kitchen with the idea of a secondary use of the normaly wasted parts we are able to get just little more creativity into our routines.

Step 1: Using a Pineapple Corer Remove the Edible Part

A pineapple corer helps remove all the edible parts but it can also be done with a sharp knife. Remove the top and bottom before coring and the parts for the luminarias is ready to utilize.

Step 2: Use the Top of the Pineapple Waste for the Candle Holder

Use a sharp knife to bore a small hole in the top of the pinapple waste and insert a stub of a candle into it, light it and slip the pinapple coreless waste over it.Voila, you have a new and usefull little luminaria that smells like the tropics as it burns. Enjoy and let me know if you made some too!

This is awesome. This would be so much better than normal torch light.

Thank you, it was really pretty from a distance and the textures are visible too compared to paper bags and no fires.
