Pineapple Christmas trees are the perfect way for anyone to decorate their place for Christmas even without a budget or wanting to cause wastage. They won’t take up any storage space and a great way to make them useful while they ripen! No matter how small your place is you can use your creativity to add a Christmas tree!
For an inverted pineapple Christmas tree just use the stem and hold a star above made from the core using a cocktail stick.
It’s been a German tradition for hundreds of years to decorate trees with fresh fruit. So why not decorate a pineapple with fruit?
If cherries are in season where you are they would make a great decoration for your pineapple tree.
Use anything you have at home to decorate your pineapple Christmas tree. Re-use and recycle just about anything that works!
Hang small peppers from your pineapple Christmas tree for a fully edible Christmas tree.
Plastic takes millions of years to fully decompose and its often discarded after 0.0000001% of the way through its life. For this reason, I avoid plastic where possible and try to use items that won’t exist after I’m gone. See further below for compostable tree decoration ideas.
Anything works when decorating a pineapple as a Christmas tree!
I can’t find the source of this funky pineapple with sunglasses and purple Baubles but its too good not to include!
Compostable Christmas Decorations
Dried oranges look great as a Christmas decoration and can still be used to make a cup of tea after you’re done with them making them zero waste. Just use dried oranges as tea within a month of making else there will be no flavour left. Steep the dried oranges in hot water and add spices.
Popcorn and Cranberries
Popcorn was a traditional Christmas tree decoration mainly because of how cheap it is, that’s the same reason it’s a popular cinema snack. Air blown 100% popcorn is a perfect tree decoration and while you won’t be able to eat it if you use a natural fibre to thread it then it will compost in a matter of weeks.
If you’re feeling adventurous you can thread popcorn with cranberries.
