Living in Florida I’ve realized that my Fall dreams of changing leaves, hoodies, and bonfires with hot cocoa just aren’t coming true anytime soon. And when I buy pumpkins and mums for my garden too early, they definitely will rot because it’s too hot. (Hey that rhymes!) So when in Rome, right?! Since I love enjoying pineapple all year long, I decided to carve a jack-o-lantern out of a pineapple instead of a pumpkin. If you have a spare 10-15 minutes, it’s a total Florida Fall win. Perfect as a Halloween centerpiece, and it’s super easy to make!
- Cut off bottom
- Cut out pineapple chunks inside
- Cut out two triangle eyes
- Cut out zigzag smile
- Add candle or battery operated candle
- Place on dish
- Turn out light
I mean…RIGHT?!! Where have these been all your life? 🙂 Obviously you can create any face or message you want. I’d love to see you recreate it and make it your own! Make sure to tag @Destin30AMomsBlog and me @_thebeachyblonde_ so we can see your Halloween creations! 🎃🍍
So quick and easy, and the kids love it too! Nothing says Florida Halloween quite like a pineapple jack-o’-lantern. Happy pineapple carving everyone!
