Our Halloween Pineapple

Posting this a little late, but I couldn’t help but share this little Halloween pineapple 🙂 Nate and I couldn’t find a good pumpkin at the grocery store the day before Halloween, so we carved a pineapple instead! So if you’ve ever wondered whether carving a pineapple is actually possible…it is! Here’s a quick how-to in case you’re curious (sorry! didn’t document with step-by-step pictures!)

  1. Instead of cutting around the top of the pineapple and scooping out, start by cutting a rectangle at the back. Make it pretty big; it should cover most of the surface area on that back side.
  2. Cut your rectangle in such a way that you can lift it off of your pineapple. Save this—it’s going to be the “back door” that you put back on your pineapple later.
  3. Keep cutting into your pineapple to remove the inside. I recommend cutting tall rectangular chunks and pulling them out. Be careful once you get towards the front of the pineapple. (Keep a container handy so you can save the pieces!)
  4. Use a sharp knife to carve the front of your pineapple. I recommend drawing your design on paper first and pinning it to the front of the pineapple.
  5. When you’re finished, clean up your design from the inside with your knife.
  6. Light a tealight, set it inside, and position your rectangle onto the back again. Use pins to hold the rectangle in place. You’re finished!
