Items Needed:

  • Chestnut Hill Farms Pineapple (however many pineapples as the candles you would like to make)
  • Gold spray paint
  • Sharp knife
  • Pineapple corer
  • Tall candle (however many candles as the pineapple candle holders you would like to make)
  • Lighter (to light your masterpiece)


  1. Start by removing the base of the pineapple with a sharp knife. Ensure you do not cut too far up, and keep the bottom piece if you would like to use it to set the pineapple on after it has been painted.
  2. Once the bottom of the pineapple has been removed, use your corer to remove the sweet fruit without damaging the outside. Set aside the pineapple fruit to enjoy immediately or prepare in a delicious platter (check out some great holiday recipes here!). Cut out core remaining inside pineapple shell and discard.
  3. In a well ventilated area, spray paint your pineapple gold. Let dry.
  4. Once dry, use a small knife to cut a small area in the top of the pineapple crown. This will be used as a stable area for your candle to be inserted.
  5. Insert candle, and enjoy your new decor!
