Pineapple Bookends Made out of Plaster

DIY Pineapple bookends made from plaster | Popcorn and ChocolateThese pineapple bookends make me very happy. Why might you ask? Well this was a DIY in the works for, oh I don’t know, maybe a year? There was so many obstacles to overcome. Bookends had to be, well, heavy. And I had to have a pineapple shaped mold, which are not very easy to find. These pineapple bookends put me through the loop but I finally, finally figured them out!DIY plaster pineapple bookends | Popcorn and Chocolate
By using plaster to make the pineapples that means that they would definitely be heavy enough to support books. And if I was using plaster then I would need a silicone mold for the actual pineapple shape. Well after much research I learned how to make my own silicone mold! I had to borrow a set of hands (thanks Rose!) to help with the project but I accomplished just what I wanted – a pair of beautiful plaster pineapple bookends.DIY Pineapple bookends made from plaster | Popcorn and ChocolateWho knew a DIY project could take so much time and thought?!
