Wear A Crown.
Pineapples are really in with Summer decorating, and since I am slightly obsessed with table decorations in the Summer, this idea was something that NEEDED to be on my table this year.
Pineapple Jar Covers! I think it needs to be on yours as well! Then we can fill the world with pineapple-y goodness together!
These are a great multi-use item. Personally, I plan on them carrying my picnic utensils for the summer. They will be yellow and green, of course. To go with all my other pineapple table decor.
With battery-op votive candles, you could use these as deck lanterns (though I would NOT use them with real candles, because acrylic can melt under too much heat!).
I took some dark pictures of my pineapple mason jar lanterns, and they turned out so pretty with the flickering votives.
These mason jar covers go together in one piece, from the bottom up, so they are fast and easy. They are almost all chains and single crochets.
The leaves naturally curl because of the way they are created, encouraging them to stand perky and proud.
