Make a Summery Pineapple Planter

7 Materials
2 Hours

Bailey dreams of summer and of fresh pineapple (yes, it's safe for dogs to eat fresh pineapple)! And while it may not be hot enough for pool parties, let’s make some fun Pineapple Planters to add a little summer flair to our spring planting.

You’ll need (do your Amazon shopping for project materials HERE to help raise monthly donations to no-kill animal shelters and rescue organizations. This affiliate link doesn't cost you anything to use):

A planter, plastic spoons, wire snips, a hot glue gun and glue sticks, and adhesive gems.

Spray paint and a drop cloth. I’m using Rust-Oleum’s 2x Paint and Primer in Summer Squash.

First, use the wire snips to cut the handles off of the plastic spoons.

Add a bit of hot glue to the bottom and the sides of the spoon...

...and stick it on the planter so that the top of the spoon sets higher than the top edge of the planter.

Continue gluing spoons onto the planter to make the first layer.

Add the second layer so that the spoons are offset compared to the first layer.

Second layer done:

Add the third layer so that the spoons are offset compared to the second layer and line up with the first layer.

Third layer done:

Continue adding layers of spoons in this pattern until you reach the bottom of the planter.

Make sure you remove any glue strings or excess hot glue.

Spray the planter over a drop cloth. Paint the inside of the planter as well as the bottom. Allow to fully dry.

Once dry, add the adhesive gems to the center of each of the spoons.

Add a plant to complete the look!

    YES - I would LOVE to see a photo if you make one! Thank you so much! :)

  • I think it looks like an artichoke, but I like those too! Really cute. I'm always amazed on this page at the ingenuity of people!

      Lol, I was actually working on another decor item with all the leftover spoons and thought the same thing - this could work as an artichoke, too! :)
