Pineapples, Plaster, and Printables (oh my!)

On a whim I bought a bucket of plaster of paris, after finding a silicone pineapple ice cube tray that I thought was too cute to use just for ice! So I mixed up some of the plaster, and whipped up a batch of plaster pineapples which I turned into magnets with a bit of paint and some glue. They turned out really well (although the leafy bit on the top is a bit shorter than planned - the leaves were a bit fragile and broke off as I pushed them out of the moulds.) I couldn't decide between a traditional coloured pineapple, or some uber fancy gold ones, so I did both.


 Because I'm on a bit of a pineapple binge at the moment, I've been searching the internet for some fun pineapple themed printables to decorate with. The 'pineapples' print was a free printable which you can download right here and print off at home! And the cut out pineapple was part of a free printable fruit garland which you can get from here - I also printed off some of the other fruits to make a garland, but it feels a bit too summery at the moment, so I have taken it down until next year. Now I need to find something suitably autumnal to replace it....
