Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Candy Corn Pots

Cute Candy Corn Pots Tools and Materials:
  • Small, new terra-cotta pots
  • Pencil
  • Acrylic paint in yellow, orange, and white
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper
  • Pen

Candy-Corn Pot How-To:

  1. Tuck handfuls of candy corn into giants of their species.
  2. Use a pencil to mark stripes on pots.
  3. Brush on acrylic paints between lines to make bands, letting each color dry before moving on to the next.
  4. When painting the top stripe, go over the lip of pot and paint inside (so it will look good even as it's emptied).
  5. Tuck in a note or scary message.

Such an awesome cute idea! Great for kids parties, a nice alternative to the gift “baggy” and can be reused for various things (i.e. pencil holder, etc.)
