Trace pineapple shapes onto card stock. You will want two templates, so trace one shape of the base of the pineapple and one of the crown. Make sure the crown template comes to a point at the bottom. This will be glued to the back of the base. Cut out shapes. 2. Use the base template to trace onto the yellow felt. Use the crown template to trace onto the green felt. Cut out shapes
