DIY Pineapple Centerpiece

Hi! Jessica here from The Confetti Bar, the coolest confetti shop on the block, where we believe happiness should be celebrated. We’ve pretty much put together the best confetti party ever with party cups, unique envelopes, goodie bags, and a handmade banner.

We’re about to kick it up a notch in terms of party crafts.

Since I believe in taking the ordinary and turning it into something extra colorful and fun, pineapples are no exception.

Hold onto these last days of summer and jazz up your next event, desk, or coffee table with a confetti pineapple centerpiece!

Supplies:

pineapple leaves spray painted with gold

*Note: before you start in with confetti-fying your pineapple, you might want to use a little spray paint to jazz up the crown. I used just a few sprays of some gold to cover a few imperfections, but still wanted the green to show through.

Mod Podge on the side of a pineapple

Start by covering the surface of the pineapple with a thick layer of Mod Podge. (While you can work in sections, it’s actually easier to cover the entire thing with Mod Podge before dipping in confetti.)

Coat the entire pineapple with a layer of Mod Podge and press confetti all over it. Let dry for a couple of hours, or until the confetti is somewhat “stuck.”

Coat with another layer of Mod Podge and let dry overnight. You can leave your pineapple centerpiece like this if you’d like, or add one more layer of Mod Podge on top if you really want to seal the confetti on there (just coat again and let dry overnight again).

Will My Pineapple Decor Last?

I’m sure you’re wondering if your pineapple centerpiece is going to last. Sadly, no – it’s only got 3 – 5 days. If you want to make it for a party, you can do it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge.

The Mod Podge may help preserve the fruit for a few days longer, but there are no guarantees, and you certainly don’t want fruit flies.

This is the cutest idea! We are going to try to make them for around 8-12 tables. DO you have any thoughts on how much confetti to order for that? It looks like she sells them by the cup. Thank you!

Hi Heather! I'm thinking a cup would be enough to cover one pineapple?? But I'm not exactly sure. You could ask her, Jessica will know given that she made these. Thank you for enjoying!

I love this idea!! I was thinking if you still wanted to be able to eat the pineapple after you've used it for decoration..... maybe you could wrap the body with plastic wrap and use the Mod Podge and confetti on top of that. If you ended up with a "gap" at the neck you could tie raffia or ribbon around the neck. Spray painting the tops wouldn't affect the edible part so now you can have your decoration and still eat it too :)
