I love a good pineapple, and not just for eating! They’re fabulous for decorating, too. And since there’s a big pineapple trend going on right now, I had to have a little pineapple pillow to go with my spring and summer decor.
So, I did a little scouting around Hobby Lobby and fell in love with this metallic gold faux leather fringe I found. I thought it would be great for a pineapple, so I gave it a try. I bought some cream-colored twill and a zipper to make the cover. I already had some green craft paint to use for the pineapple top, and some gold piping for a trim.
Following the same steps for my DIY Zippered Pillow Cover I posted about here, I cut the pieces for the pillow first.
Then, I estimated the spot where I wanted the pineapple top to be, and just painted it on and let it dry.
Next, I cut the gold fringe to the sizes I needed to form the layers for the pineapple and laid them out to see how they would fit. (It only took about a half yard offringe.)
Then, starting with the bottom, I sewed each layer on, one at a time, with a slight upward curve to make the fringe flair out a little…
Once all four layers were sewn on, I constructed the pillow cover and it was done!
I’m loving it on my green chair, and it’s a great little addition to the other spring pillows I recently made for the family room.
This pillow is easy enough for even a beginner! My friend, Brooke, already made one from the instructions I gave her, and I love hers, too!
