Make a pineapple ukulele to create fun and colorful decor for your tropical party!

My daughter is a huge fan of the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch, so her past few birthday parties have all had a tropical theme. You can see the fun Lilo and Stitch cake I made one year, or check out the flamingle that we threw for her birthday another year. For that party I painted a toy ukulele to look like a pineapple. It was a GREAT prop for the party photo booth. Here’s how I made the pineapple ukulele to decorate with.
Supplies Used for the Pineapple Ukulele: 
(may include affiliate links)
  • Coconut Ukulele
  • Americana Decor Stencils — Honeywire (12″ x 12″) — ADS14   
  • Americana Multi-Surface Acrylics — Brown Sugar — DA534  
  • Americana Multi-Surface Acrylics — Canary — DA514  
  • Americana Multi-Surface Acrylics — Chartreuse — DA517   
  • Americana Multi-Surface Acrylics — Leprechaun — DA519

Step one:  Remove the strings from the ukulele.

Step two:  Paint the base of the ukulele with Brown Sugar.

Step three: Paint the rest of the ukulele Leprechaun.

Step four:  Place the honeycomb stencil on top of the base of the uke.  Dab the Canary paint over the stencil.  Be sure to dab your foam pouncer on a paper towel to remove the excess paint before you start stenciling.  Repeat until the design is complete.

Step five:  Use the Chartreuse paint to add the “leaves” to the “pineapple”.  Use a thin brush to paint pointed leaves on the neck of the ukulele.

Add the strings back onto the ukulele to put it all back together. Kids loved strumming and posting with the toy ukulele for photos, and it makes a fun piece of party decor, too. Have fun crafting and creating tropical party decor!
