For today’s project, I’m sharing this chic and bountiful pineapple wreath. 

Unlike other fruit designs, this summer wreath isn’t overly cutesy. Instead, I’ve created an eye-catching wreath using a fairly neutral color palette. 

But that doesn’t mean this wreath lacks charisma – oh no!

Fluffy, textured greenery, bright white florals, and just a touch of orange come together to create a summery and sought-after design.

How to make a Southern summer pineapple wreath: Step-by-step tutorial 

1. Attach your pineapple sign

Begin by attaching your pineapple sign to your grapevine wreath.

Loop your florist wire through two holes in your sign, one at the top and one at the bottom. 

Then, attach it off-center to your wreath base, looping the wire around to the back of the wreath and securing behind. 

2. Make your bow

Next, it’s bow time!

Measure out a 12-inch tail of your pineapple ribbon, pinch, and twist. Then, measure out another 12 inches, pinch, and pleat for a 6-inch loop. Repeat twice more for a total of three loops, then trim, leaving a tail. 

Repeat these steps for your yellow ribbon, working on top of your pineapple ribbon, creating two 6-inch loops. 

Finally, measure out a 12-inch tail of your polka dot ribbon, measuring out 10 inches for a 5-inch loop. Repeat for a total of two loops, then trim the tail.

Hold your bow layers in one hand and tie off the center of your bow with florist wire. Then, add the bow to your wreath opposite your pineapple sign. Use florist wire to secure. 

Remember to fluff up your bow, trim any long ends, and dovetail a few pieces for interest.

3. Add your greenery

Next, we’re adding greenery, using our bow as a binding point to help the eye flow through your wreath. 

Begin setting your base with bamboo greenery, moving outward from your bow in all directions. 

Then, add different greenery in the same shade to your base to create texture and variety. You should have a grand, bushy shape.

4. Integrate your florals

Next, using your bow as a center again, add your white florals evenly throughout the greenery. 

Add a touch of white freesia to your base florals for more variety and a few orange flower sprays for added color and joy!

5. Finishing touches on your pineapple wreath

Finally, fill in any holes with fern greenery for even more texture and shape. 

Trim any long ribbon ends, fluff everything to perfection, and you’re done! Your summer pineapple wreath is ready to greet the world.
