I made this a while back and don't remember why I didn't share it sooner...



The majority of items used to make it were thrift store finds...the bowl, the aloha shirt fabric from a size small shirt, the tin candle mold (or whatever it is). The palm trees came from a store that sells cake making supplies and decorations. The Coco Joe's tiki was purchased in a lot off Ebay nearly 5 years ago. The lava rocks supporting the display came from the inside of my father-in-laws grill.

All in all I think it came out pretty good... I've got about 10 other pineapple bowls that I'm planning to do some different themes with - if I ever get some spare time. Originally I planned to make the first one using a mini bottle of Demarara rum I found at an antique store guarded by 2 mini tikis from a couple keychains but I didn't... that one's gonna be next.

Whaddaya think?

That's a really nice idea. That's the kind of thing I need to learn how to do. Maybe I'll go thrifting this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

Cool! What a great idea!

All the pineapple bowls I see are monkeypod. I keep my eyes peeled for anything Koa, they must be the expensive fancy ones no one wants to give away up here.

Oops my mistake - you're right Tikiwahine the bowl is monkeypod... I don't even know if I have a koa pineapple.

Purple Jade you're thinking along the same lines I am! Not only does it need a light, which will definitely be included in future assemblage "pineapple boxes", but I've had this wacky idea involving one of the carved monkeypod palm leaves with the seperated sections... I haven't quite pieced the idea together in its entirety but just imagine the leaf mounted to the wall and each seperate chamber acting as a mini pool for a cascading waterfall... now that would be sweet!

John,
Great minds think alike. I always wonder what I could make out of the mountain of Monkeypod dishes I see in the thrift stores. How about wind chimes?


Here are four lovely Wahines dancing around the pink tiki. All are Xmas ornaments.
Mahalo,
Al

Thanks for the ideas.

monkeypod palm leaves! Are those dishes too? or strictly ornamental? (I have a thing for tropical foliage)

And that's a super ornament/windchime/pineapple bowl hangar thingy Al! very, very cool.

Do you remember sam's pinstriped bowl? THAT was cool!


I feel guilty about noise in my backyard, what with having a huge barking dog and all.
I found a green copper salmon skeleton wind chime, but took the bell part out so that it would be quiet.

I think maybe I'm worrying too much!

Thanks for the idea Al, I'm definitely gonna do the same with one of mine... but the problem is if I make the windchime I'll only have 299 pineapple bowls left!
