Pineapple Carving for Fall

Carve a Pineapple this Fall for a season full of surprises!

Thinking of creative ways to carve a jack-O-lantern is a fun twist on the traditional favorite. Try this easy DIY pineapple creation to add to your festive decor.

This sweet fruit is used to garnish hams, served as a dessert and even ordered as a topping on pizza! BUT, don’t throw the spiky exterior in the trash, use it to create spooky or goofy home decor this Halloween.

To carve a pineapple:

Step one: cut off the thorny top and set aside.

Step two: Using a paring knife, cut around the inside edge of the top of the pineapple; a carving tool set is handy to scoop of the insides. Continue the process until you have a hollow pineapple.

Step three: Carving the eyes and mouth. Since the skin already has hexagonal shaped units in it so use them as a pattern to cut out eyes and a mouth.

Step four: Light the inside with a battery operated tea light and pop the lid back on. All those spines on top create a wicked personality for your Pineapple-lantern.

Happy Fall Ya’ll.
