Video Tutorial : 3D Paper Pineapple & Citrus Fruits (Free SVG & PDF Templates)

DIY 3D Paper Pineapple & Citrus Fruit Gift Toppers / Ornaments (Free SVG & PDF Templates Included)

Pineapples, along with citrus fruits, are the hottest things around this summer, and today I’m sharing a video tutorial for making these fun, three dimensional paper pineapples that you can use to embellish everything from gift packages to garlands to tropical-themed Christmas trees. You can download the free printable templates for the pineapples, as well as templates for an orange / grapefruit and lemon / lime below, and you’ll need just a few basic supplies to make bunches of these sweet, tropical decorations!

Make 3D Paper Pineapple & Citrus Fruit Decorations

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • colored paper ( I used Neenah Astrobrights Solar Yellow and Terra Green 24lb text weight paper)*
  • the FREE printable templates for this project (download below)
  • a Silhouette Cameo or similar digital die cutting machine OR, if you don’t have a die cutting machine, a printer and scissors to cut out by hand
  • craft glue
  • thread and a needle to make the hanger for the pineapple

* I recommend using text weight paper for this because cardstock is a bit too heavy and adds a lot of bulk to the finished project. It also makes assembly somewhat more difficult.

    Wow so pretty. I want to try them for my daughters fruit birthday. Would these stand up as table centerpieces?

    • Renee Schwartz September 22, 2018 at 12:03 pm #

      Laura, technically they do stand up but they’re very light and blow over very easily. I’m not sure they’d work very well as centerpieces.

    I loved it! But how many pieces of paper is necessary to make 1 pineapple ?
