Instructions 1. Chisel down the sides of the styrofoam ball to create an oval shape (shape of a pineapple) 2. Stick the pointy end of the “leaf bunch” into the top of the styrofoam 3. Break toothpicks in half 4. Starting from the top, working your way around in a circle, fill the styrofoam with grapes attached by toothpicks. 5. For a finished look, put fake grass or moss under the “pineapple” 6. Place “pineapple” on top of vase/candlestick
