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.

a fun halloween treat

via Martha Stewart
Skull Pop
  • To make a skeleton head, you'll need two regular marshmallows.
  • With scissors, cut one marshmallow widthwise to expose stickiness and make pieces for the head and jaw.
  • Poke holes with a toothpick to make sticky spots for eyes, teeth, and nose.
  • Poke white candy-coated licorice pastels into jaw for teeth, and press in black licorice drops for eyes.
  • Snip a piece of black licorice twist into a small triangle for the nose, and press into place.
  • Poke a few times with the toothpick into marshmallows to make a large hole for a candy stick.
  • Push candy stick into hole, through jaw, and into skull. Wrap in cellophane bag if desired. from Martha Stewart Living October 2006
