DIY Pineapple Costume

You know how I feel about pineapples right? Remember when my daughter went to cheer camp last summer and we created an all kinds of 'pineapple' themed decor and treats for the girls on the team? Those were good times! Last weekend, my daughter's team competed at NCA in Dallas in the Youth Level 3 Division. It was a great competition and her team did really well. Prior to the competition, the gym arranged for the girls to have a few dress up days to get everyone pumped up about NCA. Usually, the All Star teams have specific practice uniforms for each day, but during NCA week- it was all about fun costumes/outfits. My favorite one was the "Twins Day". Afton and her friend wanted to dress alike... which gave me the perfect opportunity to craft something super cute!  Enter the DIY Pineapple Costume!





To make your own Pineapple Costume, you don't need much... (I linked some of the items for you!)
-Yellow tshirt
-Black paint
-Paint brush
-headband
-construction paper (green)
-toilet paper roll
-hot glue
-striped socks 
-sunglasses
 (I found mine in store at Hobby Lobby, I couldn't find them online but these are similar.)

1. Paint 'pineapple marks' on the shirt with black paint and a foam paint brush. Be sure to put cardboard inside the shirt when you paint so it doesn't bleed through. Allow to dry at least 24 hours.


2. Make the 'crown'. I used a toilet paper roll hot glued to a plastic headband as my base. Then I cut different sized leaves from construction paper and glued them to the toilet paper roll. I 'curled' some of the leaves down by rolling the paper over my fingers.



3. Put on all your gear and smile! The girls wore their shirts with Nike Pro shorts since they were going to be tumbling.




Be a pineapple: Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside. :)
