Paint Your Foam Egg Base

Gather your supplies from the list above. I chose to paint my foam egg green underneath because I didn’t want the white to show through and it also gives the pineapple a more authentic look! For best results with painting try using smooth foam. If you have to use the foam that sheds try to use a foam brush and sort of dab the paint on. You may not want to use a brush motion because it can cause the foam egg to shed and you may get covered in paint (true story ya’ll!).


Cut Out Your Pineapple Templates

Get all your paper pineapple template pieces cut out. The number of pineapple pieces you will glue on will vary for everyone but I used about 40 for mine. You will also want to cut out 4 of the green-topped crowns for these paper pineapple decorations.

Assemble Your Paper Pineapple

Begin gluing on each of the pineapple pieces. Glue in a circle to try and stay fairly even and slightly overlap on the bottom and sides as you go. Keep all the paper pineapple pieces flowing in the same direction for a nice uniformed look.

Keep going till the foam egg is totally covered. The idea here is to only have the green base showing through the center cutouts of each pineapple piece you are adding.

Make Your Paper Pineapple Crown

To finish the top of the paper pineapple decorations take your 4 pineapple crown cutouts and fold each one in half down the center. Next, glue all 4 folded crown pieces together in a stack.

Before closing the pineapple crown, glue in your bamboo skewer into the center. Then glue the crown closed around the wood stick.


The final step to complete your paper pineapple decorations is to insert the crown into the base of the pineapple. If it feels like it is struggling to go in, use a gentle twisting motion to make it easier. You may also need to trim the bamboo skewer excess off the bottom – use scissors or wire clippers for this.

Finally, once your pineapple crown is on add in any extra pineapple cutouts around the top to make a seamless transition from the bottom yellow part of the pineapple to the green crown.

    My daughter in law uses pineapples in her classroom! These are awesome. I did try to curve the bottom of the green paper a little so it was somewhat closer to the yellow pieces.
    Thank you for making this so much fun!
