Hi Everyone. I’m Sue and I blog over at A Purdy Little House. I’m happy to continue to be a part of this site and to be able to bring you a new and fun DIY project every month. For this post, I’ll show you how I made these fun pineapple jewellery trays in a few quick and easy steps.

This project is all about pineapples. I’ve been seeing so many pineapples used in some form as summer decor, that I knew I wanted to join in on the fun.

I needed somewhere to store my rings and earrings on my beside table, so I came up with the idea  to make these simple jewelry trays using quick dry clay from the dollar store. The clay only cost me a total of $1.50, and this type of clay doesn’t require any baking or a kiln as it dries naturally.

I started out by forming my pineapple tray into a bowl shape and then trimming the edges with a clay modeling tool. The top of the pineapple was tricky, and required a bit more skill. I began by blocking it out and then using the tool to cut the shape of the pineapple leaves.

Once my pineapples were formed, I left them on a baking sheet to dry for about 48 hrs. You’ll notice there are 3 pineapples here, but only 2 made it to the finish line. Unfortunately, my big pineapple broke…. Wah 🙁

I then spray painted the pineapples using a gold spary paint (Ignore the cracks you see on the big guy…. he won’t make it past this stage). Live and learn…. The lesson here is to not make your clay molds so big, as they become more fragile.

For some contrast, I decided to make this one a cream color using some spray paint I had on hand. I simply love how this one turned out.

My 2 surviving pineapples were then given some additional paint detail.

I chose to add some chevrons to the small pineapple in a cream color to match the other pineapple.

Once the back was painted, I chose to make the edges of the larger one gold. After all, jewelry is going to be stored in these, so why not give it a little bling bling.

Here they are all finished. I love how they turned out, and these pineapple jewelry trays would make for a cute personalized gift for a friend or family member too. Wouldn’t it be fun to add someone’s initials in one?
