Pineapple Owl

Pineapple is a tropical fruit also called as “Ananas”.  It is named as “pineapple” because of its resemblance to a pine cone.



It bears a  circular cluster of waxy, strap-like leaves serving as its crown on top. When the fruit ripes, the pineapple may be dark green, yellow, orange-yellow or reddish in colour.


This time i have carved an Owl using 2 Pineapples!



Method


Cut one pineapple in two halves and carve the eye region as seen in the picture.
Take another Pineapple and remove the skin from the middle region as shown, to make the Owl’s body.
Place the pineapple’s leaf crowns by piercing on both sides as wings.
Carve the beak and toes out of carrot.
Place the cherry as eyes


….and the Owl is ready to fly!



Pineapple is commonly used in desserts, Juices and Fruit salads, served on its own or in presentations too!
