This might sound weird, but I’ll just say it anyway: I really love pineapples. I don’t know why, honestly, I just do. Maybe it’s because pineapples have a tropical, beachy vibe to them that reminds me of Caribbean islands, warm summer days, and time spent by the ocean (my favorite things!). Or maybe it’s because those fruits, with their prickly skin and pointy leaves, are really freakin’ adorable in a way I can’t even explain because it sounds odd. I DON’T KNOW GUYS. I just know I have a thing for pineapples and I need to chill.
But this post is about me having no chill, because it’s all about pineapples. Specifically, pineapple crafts that you (and I) need to make this summer. The Internet seems to have caught onto my pineapple obsession (did you even see this Buzzfeed post because it almost bankrupted me) and I couldn’t be happier about it. And while I fully encourage you purchasing pineapple items, I also think you should put your creativity to good use and make some of your own. It’s just more special and fun that way!
To get you started, here are a bunch of easy tutorials for ridiculously cute pineapple crafts you need to make ASAP. These will fuel your pineapple obsession (or begin it), make your summer a little brighter, and give you something to do during those boring days off. Hey, a pineapple bag might sound absurd, but once you see it, you’ll understand the appeal.
1. Make a pineapple blanket for days at the beach or the park.
These adorable blankets are easier to make than you think and are perfect for a picnic or beach day. If pineapples aren’t your thing, go for the watermelon or orange!
2. Decorate a pouch with little pineapples.
This adorable pouch is great for holding makeup or other small items. I love to throw these in my handbags to keep my little items from collecting at the bottom of my bag.
