Step 1: Materials
The materials that you'll need are:
1. One fresh pineapple.
3. Knife, it can be an slicer knife or a chef's knife, or any knife you use to cut pineapples.
4. Two or three chopsticks.
Step 2: Cutting Leaves
The first thing you'll need to do is to cut some leaves from the crown (the top part) with the scissors. You are gonna need them later.
Step 3: Half Pineapple
Cut the pineapple in two parts, just a little smaller the upper part, the crown is going to be the body and the pineapple the head of the parrot.
Step 4: Cleaning the Head
Use your scissors to cut more leaves from the upper part so that you just have the upper ones long.
Then you'll need to cut all four sides of the upper part of the pineapple, the one with the crown. You will have a cubic head.
Step 5: Shaping the Head
With the knife clean the edges, cutting diagonally to have a pointy head.
Step 6: Make the Peak
Now this might be the trickiest part, I told you is super simple. With the knife cut a little bit from the lower part of the head to shape the peak, and cut a little more the head to have a nice circular head like a real parrot.
Step 7: Eyes and Feathers
With the leaves that you cut at the beginning use them to make his eyes and feathers.
Insert in diagonal the sticks to the crown.
Step 8: Showoff
Now place the parrot in the other half of the pineapple and use the parts that you cut to decorate your pineapple parrot.
It's ready to be showed off in parties or any occasion you want.
