Easy-Peasy Swag!




Do you have any paint sticks around? Go get one! Take a hammer and a nail and put a 3-4 inch nail into the paint stick.

Then take a 2 feet real, pine garland and cross it like a "pink ribbon". Tie it with wire!

Now take your paint stick and put it in the wire so it's held tightly against the garland.

Halve a pineapple and hallow it (so it's light).

{This is a great tool to hollow out fruit}

Then stick it on the nail. Tie your favorite ribbon around the pineapple and garland...Woila!

Do you know what a pineapple means?

{Welcome}

Try it...it looks beautiful on "red" doors!

I REALLY love this...How long does it last? I can imagine getting busy with Christmas, and forgetting that I have let it rot there!
I wonder if anyone sells fake pineapples, like they do with fake pumpkins....Hmmmm....

Great idea!!! Did you know that in every single episode of 'Psyche' they sneak a pineapple in there somewhere? It's so fun to wait for it and laugh when it finally makes its appearance. Hee-hee!
