DIY Pineapple Vase

Last summer, I developed a mild obsession with doing things with hallowed out fruit (mainly pineapple) shells. Like drinking a cocoloco out of a coconut shell or a piña colada out of a pineapple. You get my drift. But in preparation for summer and less rainy days (fingers crossed, Texas has been unruly), I made this cute little center piece or place setting to tropicalize (I made that up) your summer festivities. 

Here's what you need: 

  1. Pineapple(s)
  2. Flowers of your choice (I wanted peonies, but I missed the boat at Trader Joe's)
  3. Knife
  4. Pineapple corer (optional, but recommended. I bought mine here)

Can I just tell you how magical this pineapple corer tool thingy is? It's magical. In just about 30 seconds, you not only have a hollowed out pineapple shell, but you also have the perfect little pineapple ringlets to snack on. $4, holla!
