Pineapples have a vibrant tropical taste, and they are counted among the healthiest foods in the world. However, pineapples also have a unique shape to them, and they work great in decorating.
You’ve probably seen Jack o’ Lanterns made out of pineapples being used this Halloween. But, have you ever thought of using pineapples for Christmas decorations? Yes, many design enthusiasts are creating pineapple Christmas trees to give their holiday a tropical touch. And, I must say, this idea seems to be a fantastic one. Many people simply don’t have the space to include a large Christmas tree in their homes. Some others cannot afford to get a full-sized Christmas tree. Creating a pineapple Christmas tree is an excellent alternative to these problems.
For the best effect, you need to make sure that you include some decorations on your pineapple Christmas tree. Without any decorations, your pineapple Christmas tree will just be another fruit lying in your home.
Fortunately, we’ve got you covered on this. Here are some great ideas on how you can decorate your pineapple Christmas trees to good effect.
The simplest and easiest way to add decorations to your pineapple Christmas tree is by hanging ornaments on it. Just use your favourite baubles, ornaments and decorations and hang them off the topmost leaves of the fruit. This way, you’ll create a mini Christmas tree in an instant.
You can create multiple such pineapple Christmas trees and place them around your home for a grand effect. If you’re using small sized pineapples, then you can also decorate them and use them as holiday table centrepieces. Alternatively, you can simply get a large-sized pineapple and create a single Christmas tree. This works great for really compact spaces, such as stores.
Have you ever seen a Christmas tree without lights? I think not.
If you’re going for a pineapple Christmas tree, you must add lights to it to make it resemble a real Christmas tree.
Add lights to your pineapple Christmas tree just the way you would for a normal Christmas tree. You can simply wrap around a string of LED lights from the base of the pineapple up to the leaves. Alternatively, you can get a little creative and add multicoloured LED lights to different parts of your pineapple Christmas tree. With the help of just a few lights, you can add a warm glow to your pineapple Christmas tree.
Use wreaths and garlands
Wreaths and garlands are stapled Christmas decorations, and they work great with pineapple Christmas trees as well. Simply hang a wreath on a wall behind your pineapple Christmas tree or arrange a garland around it. Either way, you’ll be adding essential Christmas décor to your homemade Christmas tree.
To complete this look, make sure to include season’s greetings and holiday messages around your Christmas tree. This will immediately draw people’s attention to your mini Christmas tree, and you’re sure to receive many compliments on it.
Get creative with your pineapple Christmas tree
If you’re using a pineapple Christmas tree, then you’re already doing something creative. But, you can always take things a step further and spice your pineapple Christmas tree up.
While you must include decorations and lights to your pineapple Christmas tree, there are several other things you can do. For instance, adding a pair of sunglasses to the pineapple will give your Christmas tree a face. This makes for a fun-filled and merry effect, which completely ties in with the spirit of Christmas.
Another way to get creative with your pineapple Christmas tree is by placing mini presents under the tree. These mini presents will immediately give people the impression that you have your holiday decorations well thought out.
In fact, there are endless possibilities to decorate your pineapple Christmas tree. There’s absolutely no limit to being creative, and you can give it your best. Just remember to decorate your homemade Christmas tree in the spirit of the festive season. This includes adding elements of warmth, soft lights and traditional décor elements using plenty of green, white and red colours.
So, there you go – these are some simple, but effective ways of decorating a pineapple Christmas tree. By following any of these design ideas, you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a unique Christmas with a tropical twist. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to decorate a mini Christmas tree. But, you must always look to decorate keeping the festive season in mind.
