Make Your Own Pineapple Night Light

D.I.Y. Pineapple Night Light (click though for a video tutorial!)Hi, friends! Today I want to share a fun craft project that combines my love for candles, mason jars, and (drumroll please?) pineapples!

It’s a pineapple night light. I kind of obsess over theming parties, small or big. And after all the cold we just had in Missouri, I’m in major need of some tropical vibes. So these are going to be the perfect touch to a little cocktail night with friends, but I’m pretty sure they’re going to be a permanent fixture too! It’s the perfect little DIY for our Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores collaboration we’re doing this year.

– mason jar (or jars in various sizes)
– yellow tissue paper
gloss finish Mod Podge
black and green acrylic craft paint
paint brushes
green felt
pipe cleaners (in any color) 
– optional: battery operated tea lights and a glue gun

Step 1. Cut tissue into small pieces. 

Step 2. Use Mod Podge to adhere tissue, covering mason jar. (Allow to dry) 

Step 3. Add details with black paint. 
Step 4. Cut leaves from felt and glue them to the lid. 
Step 5. Paint lid green. 
Step 6. Insert battery operated tea light. 

Watch the video for full instructions. This is a fairly quick project, so if you’re going to make one, you may as well make a group of three, four, or five!
