Cut off the top of the pineapple, and core the pineapple to create a “well” for a floral container. Ensure that the pineapple will sit upright stably by slicing off a layer of the bottom of the pineapple, if necessary.
Make sure the leave enough flesh inside the pineapple to keep it from collapsing. Line the hollow center of the pineapple with plastic wrap or a plastic bag. and cover or seal the base of the pineapple, if necessary.
Insert a jar or vase the size of the “well” into the pineapple. You can also use chicken wire, if you prefer, or you can insert a piece of chicken wire into the jar as an armature.
Arrange tropical flowers into the container in the center of the pineapple. NOTE: Stability and mechanics are important, particularly when using heavy tropical botanicals.
