I am bringing you a pineapple wine glass charm DIY! That’s right, I turned some clearance bin Michaels’ pineapples into chic little Pineapple Wine Glass Charms. This set is cute, colourful, and can be used almost all year long with a few modifications. Here is what you need to make your own.

Materials


  • Laser cut pineapples – go snag some at Michaels while they’re still there!!! Otherwise you can use these //  here //
  • Americana Premium Acrylics: Viridian Green Hue, Sap Green, Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide.
  • Americana Premium White Gesso
  • Americana Premium Mat
  • Acrylic Paint brushes
  • Jewelry wire (14 gage)
  • Pom Poms 


Step 1.


Since these pineapples are already yellow we don’t have to start by painting them yellow. But if you’re using a different kind you found elsewhere, give them a nice base coat in whatever shade you think is appropriate.

Step 2.


Using a fine tipped acrylic paint brush, do a series of scalloped lines along the body of the pineapple. These will act like the scales.

Step 3.


 Using GREEN NO1 do an outline on each of the pineapple’s leaves. You could also start with GREEN NO2 and do a base coat and then add details with NO1.

Step 4.


While the green dries, use your white to add a few contrast dots on the scales.

Step 5.


Once Green NO1 is dry, fill in the rest using green no2. It doesn’t have to be perfect, and I think it looks better if there’s still some yellow coming-through. Apply a top coat using the Americana Premium Acrylic Mat.

Step 6.


The mat dries super quickly, so while they dry cut your wire to the desired length using wire cutters, and then thread them through the hole. Add a pom pom.

Step 7.


Using pliers, twist each end of the wire inward.

Add to a wine glass and enjoy!

    Cute but I though the whole idea behind charms is to differentiate glasses. So, one needs other fruits too.🤔
