Ten sweet pineapple crafts that are sure to brighten your home and add sparkle to your summer!
We took a trip to Hawaii and visited the Dole Pineapple plant. I swear there were beautiful pineapples everywhere and just looking at them made me happy! So, I thought I would bring a little of that ‘happy’ home.
Side note: If you’ve never had a Dole Whip then I suggest you do that first (sooo good!! here’s a link to make them at home ).
Below are a few of my favorite Pineapple crafts and upcycles. These are easy DIYs anyone can make and great projects for adults and teens.
1. Pineapple Flower Wreath
Pick up a grapevine wreath, faux flowers, and a few palm leaves to make this beautiful summer wreath for your front door. Get more details on this sunny DIY here –> Pineapple Wreath Made With Sun Flowers.
2. Pineapple Book Stack
A really easy and affordable way to incorporate pineapple imagery into your existing decor is to add a pineapple-themed book stack! Just gather up a few hard-cover books and cover them with this pretty paper.
I purchased these beautiful digital papers from Masha Studio. If you’d like to download and print the same digital papers to make your own cute pineapple stack, you can link to their store on Etsy here.

4. Utility Light Turned Pineapple Bud Vase
This propagation bud vase was made from an old utility light that I found at the flea market for $1! Maybe you have one of these in your basement already. If not, you can pick up an inexpensive one at any hardware store and paint it! I just added a slender glass jar for my bud vase.
5. Pineapple Heart Wood Sign
This colorful pineapple sign is fun and easy to make. You only need a few supplies from the craft store and your local hardware store. Get the complete instructions here –> Welcoming Pineapple Sign Made With Wood Hearts

6. Pineapple Memo Board
Make a fun memo board with just a few supplies. You’ll need an X-Acto or precision knife, gold spray paint, an old tennis racket (or a dollar store badminton racket), cardboard, sequin ribbon, and a hot glue gun.
Start by cutting a pineapple leaf top out of cardboard (get the template here). Next, hot glue the pineapple top to the racket and cut away the remainder of the handle with a hack saw. Spray paint then hot glue sequin ribbon along the edges.
7. Upcycled Basket with Pineapple Door Knocker Accent
Add pineapple decorations to an old basket to create a beautiful catch-all basket. I found this old pineapple door knocker at my local antique store. It’s solid brass and cost just a few dollars. I’ve had it in my craft supply bin for a while now so I decided to add it to my painted basket as a fun decoration.
If you don’t have a brass pineapple door knocker waiting in the wings, that’s okay! Use pineapple-shaped wood cutouts and other pineapple embellishments from Dollar Tree or the craft store.
8. Textured Framed Pineapple Art
This framed pineapple art was an inexpensive DIY. I found this beautiful yellow picture frame at the flea market, It’s not an antique, I just really liked it! Here is a link to a similar distressed yellow frame on Amazon, and the pineapple art was cut out of a peel and stick tile decal from Dollar Tree.
Note: I tried to cut this decal tile with an X-Acto knife and it turned into a mess. Thankfully I had a back up tile and I used a good ol’ pair of sharp scissors which worked perfectly. Sometimes simple is better 🙂 You can download the pineapple art here if you’d like to use it.
Make garden mushrooms and toadstools from old vases and glass bowls!
9. Fruity Coasters
Make pineapple and orange slice coasters from 3.5-inch wood slices and green felt.
Start by painting your wood slice to look like a pineapple with acrylic paint. Next, cut a pineapple top out of thick green felt. I highly recommend this brand of felt and I use it for all types of crafts.
Before hot gluing the felt to the back of your coasters, be sure to coat your painted wood slices with polyurethane to seal and protect the paint layer.

10. Pineapple Stenciled Cloth Napkins
Make these colorful summer napkins with fabric paint and the free stencil art below.
To make them, pick up a set of white fabric napkins like these on Amazon and paint formulated for fabric. I love this set of paints, they were easy to use, the colors were vibrant and they didn’t stiffen the fabric when dry.
Simply use a stencil brush or foam applicator to stencil colorful pineapples onto your fabric. I made my own stencil, if you would like to use the same art, you can download it here –> Pineapple Stencil SVG and PDF file.
I also used stencil vinyl and my Cricut Maker. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can make a quick stencil by printing the PDF file onto lightweight card stock and cutting the image out with a sharp precision knife.
11. Beach Bag With Pineapple Handles
I found this beautiful pineapple patterned fabric at my local craft store for the handles of my DIY Beach Bag. If you’d like to make your own beach bag, check out my post –> Easy Sew Summer Beach Tote.
