Ever learned how to make a high end pineapple? What is a high end pineapple, you may ask. Well, Labella Home Decor released a beautiful seashell pineapple, but it’s going for almost $70! That can be a little too pricey for some folk, so I made it my mission to create a knock off for only $5! Keep reading to find out how I created this high end pineapple, or watch the video replay below!

Here’s what you’ll need
– Hot glue gun
– Sea shells
– Jar with lid
– Baking sheet
– Waverly Chalk paint in White, Gray, black and Steel
At this time, you’ll want to begin by dabbing paint into your baking sheet. Especially because the high end pineapple look we’re going for is galvanized.
Following that, you’ll want to paint the lid of the jar in a similar fashion. Again, creating that galvanized look.
During this process, I used three different paints to dab color onto the lib and sheet. The following colors were steel, gray and black. Make sure you do not use too much as we want this to be a subtle look.
First, to begin the body of the pineapple, you’ll want to separate your seashells into ones you’d like to use and ones you will not use. Look for the seashells with curve, like your stereotypical seashell. Those ones will work best for the body of the pineapple.
Secondly, you’ll begin to paint the jar white. This allows for the colors of the seashells to pop and allow for neutral tones throughout.
Furthermore, once you’ve painted your jar, take a hair drier and speed up the drying process for all materials you’ve painted.
Finally, you can begin to make the body of your pineapple, carefully place and hot glue each shell onto the jar in an upwards fashion.
Because we’re making a pineapple, we’ll need the leaves at the top. You can create these by cutting out pieces from your baking sheet that we painted previously.
In addition to that, they do not need to be perfect. I’ve never seen perfectly shaped pineapple leaves, just cut pieces around the same size and hot glue them to the top of your pineapple.
Now that you have made your high end pineapple for much cheaper than it’s counterpart, you can put it on a shelf and enjoy it as summer decor.
