Quick & Easy DIY pineapple costume for babies

If you are following me on Instagram you might have already seen the pictures of this DIY costume and step by step process I shared last year on my Insta stories. Back then there was no archive option on Instagram so I thought I should document it on my blog. As this is the perfect time for Halloween, I am sharing this quick and easy pineapple costume I made for my 4-month-old son last year. Let's get to the details.

DIY steps using Cardboard for Navaratri Golu

Navaratri - the Indian festival about which I have already shared in detail two years ago. It is basically a festival which involves the display of a variety of dolls depicting the Hindu culture. You can read more about this festival in the above-linked post. Usually the dolls are displayed in steps. The steps are usually wood in olden days but these days the steps come in steel as well as wood and also in many homes they make the steps with the things(tables, suitcases, boxes, etc) they already have at home. The dolls used for display are clay dolls which are usually heavy but nowadays we get paper-mache dolls, wooden dolls which are less in weight.

Navaratri has always been one of my favorite festivals since childhood days as I love arranging the dolls and building my own display of parks and stuff in the golu. As I don't want to totally avoid celebrating this festival due to the space constraint in the apartment we live I wanted to keep the tradition alive by celebrating it in my way of displaying golu in small size. So, I started collecting the dolls for my mini golu from various shops and wherever I go.  (My aunt is one of the biggest help in collecting most of these dolls as she sourced these for me and still looks for mini dolls wherever she goes.)I made my own cardboard steps for displaying this and I posted it in my previous post. Many people asked me how I did that and to post detailed DIY. The steps I made previously requires tape to secure and the repeated use of tape may damage the cardboard as years pass by. So, I wanted to make steps that don't involve tape and ended up with this idea that I am sharing here. It is not a perfect solution but I managed to make it with some adjustments here and there. If you have any suggestions to make it easier, please share them in the comments below. Now to the steps.
