This DIY Pineapple Planter Art is just too adorable for words! Perfect to brighten up your room while and bring some life to it. Also makes a great gift!
I don’t have much of a green thumb, but I’m not exactly a plant killer either! I’m okay with plants, although I’d prefer the low maintenance variety – don’t want to push my luck too much!
Plants are a great way for kids to bond with nature, especially in an age where there are screens everywhere – at home, in school and even on their commute! Since most of us live in high rises, a kitchen garden or yard may not be practical, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take care of plants!
Introduce your kids to gardening with indoor plants – start with just one or two so they aren’t overwhelmed. Choose low maintenance plants like succulents, so they don’t die even if they are ignored for a few days. To get the kids even more excited about plants, we’d recommend a bright and colorful planter they can paint themselves, like this DIY Pineapple planter!

How to make the Pineapple Planter:
1. Start by painting the entire clay pot white. You may have to apply more than one coat to completely cover the brown. Let it dry.
2. Apply a coat of yellow paint on the dry pot. Let this dry and if necessary, apply another coat of yellow paint. Let it dry completely.
3. Paint the rim of the pot in green. Let it dry.
4. Your pot is ready! Now add some soil and a plant and you’re all set with your pineapple planter!
To make it truly look like a pineapple, opt for a succulent like aloe vera. The spiky leaves will look perfect with the pineapple planter. We love how bright and cheery this planter looks – exactly what will get the kids excited about taking care of it!
