Gold Gilded White Ceramic Painted Pineapple DIY!

Gold Gilded White Ceramic Painted Pineapple DIY!
The pineapple craze has been right up our alley.  My teenage daughter loves pineapples, all things pineapple...in fact, she has a youtube channel with funny videos with her friends called The Pineapple Guild.  So we gravitate towards pineapples around here.  I was in a fancy store not too long ago, maybe Downeast or Anthropologie (maybe both), and I saw a white ceramic pineapple with a gold gilded crown.  I knew I could DIY it because I had this pineapple tumbler:
You will need:
Pineapple Tumbler
(My Pineapple was from (affiliate link) Oriental Trading about 2 years ago, they don't have them anymore...but they have this one and this one)

White Spray Paint
Liquid Gold Leaf Gilding (from Plaid)
Paintbrush
Place the pineapple on a piece of cardboard for spraying.  Make sure the temperature is not too hot or too cold outside or the paint will crack.  Lightly spray the pineapple.  Hold the spray paint 6 inches from the item and lightly mist.  Let the paint sit for 10 minutes and then spray again.  Then let the pineapple sit for a few hours.
Once painted it will already look like a chic home decor decoration!
Let's kick it up a notch with some gold leaf!  You will need a round paint brush.
Just paint the gold leaf right on the top section of the pineapple, the crown.
Let it dry completely and admire!  I love the shiny gold with the white ceramic!
Perfect for little treats on the entry table or sitting on the desk!  I love the classy look of this updated pineapple!  Be a pineapple, be sweet on the inside and wear a crown!
