If you'd asked me a year ago, I wouldn't have guessed that pineapples would be a trend in the DIY world. But, when you think about it, they make a lot of sense. Colorful, bold (and kinda goofy-looking), they're fun to have around as nice weather is finally here. Plus, the pineapple has long been symbol of hospitality, so they make for great party decorations. Here are some of my favorite projects as of late:
