LTTCB #5 - It's a Pineapple!!



It's December.....so a new month and a new challenge!!!  Remember it's always anything goes....so get as creatively crafty as you like!!

Check out the challenge here and see all the amazing DT samples and details for prizes:   LTTCB #5


My daughter's birthday is right around Thanksgiving....but she loves Halloween so much that I wanted to make her birthday card appropriate.  Hence the fun Stampin' Up!  Jar of Haunts and Spooky Fun.  


And this pineapple I'd seen on Pinterest and knew it would be a perfect gift for my girl!  What better gift than champagne and chocolates??  Check out the before and after pics........



Oh yeah....lots and lots of truffles!  LOL


There are several different ways to do it, but I used the method that took the longest and burned my fingers the most with the hot glue gun! LOL  Because, well, yeah.  That's just me!  Some ribbon and twine for the piney part of the pineapple finishes it off!!

I hope you have some fun getting crafty and creative!!
