Halloween, Projects

Carving pineapples

My sweet cousin shared a pin with me the other day and I about jumped out of my seat when I saw it. Pineapple jack-o-lanterns! Beyond brilliant. Especially since the pineapple is my signature fruit now, thanks to Mr. Jace ;) Once we got started, I quickly realized how much easier and yummier it is to carve pineapples than pumpkins. Less messy and less icky {but a little more stickier}. The key to a good pineapple jack-o-lantern? Cut a whole in the bottom, too. You can save the pineapple insides for the whole week. Pineapple deliciousness all week.  Once you give them a face, they kind of look like little tribal people, glowing on your patio. They’ve been getting quite the attention in our neighborhood. Just a heads up, your patio will be a little juicy and sticky but it’s nothing a hose down can’t solve after Halloween.







{my men helped me, too}





Happy carving to you — whatever you decide to carve this holiday!
