What I used:
All paper was from Bazzil
Glossy Accents ( to give them that nice glossy look and feel)
Pins for the back (i used my hot glue to put them on)
I cut 3 pineapples to make one. They were going to be used as pins so I had to make them sturdy. The backing was brown, then layered the green on top and then the top layer I cut off the top so the green can show. After glueing them all together (at this point it was 300 pineapples because of the layers) I had to put on the squiggly lines. This is the most tedious thing EVER. 7 squiggly lines per pineapple!! THAT IS 700 PIECES!!! I used mod podge to glue them on. One by one...Then I put another coat of modge podge and waited for them to dry. After that, I applied Glossy Accents to the top of each Pineapple. That was pretty tedious too. When that dried..a few hours later. I hot glued all the pins on. I'm pleased with my work but I don't think I can see, eat or even think about another pineapple for a while. Enjoy!
|Imagine removing 700 zig zags from here.|
I had 3 full sheets of this.
|waiting for the glossy accents to dry. tick tock, tick tock,,,,etc|
|Pins hot glued, I really was not pleased that some |
of my glue seeped to the back. Thankfully, you
can't see that once they are put on.
Lesson learned. Put the back layer on last. :)
