Pineapples might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about decorating ideas for Halloween, but it turns out the fruit works pretty well as a tropical alternative to the traditional pumpkin jack-o'-lantern.

Need proof? In the lead-up to this year's spookiest season, people have been sharing pictures of these spiky-haired fellas on social media.

And as photo evidence from last year suggests, pineapple lanterns go down well at a party too. Particularly if you're serving piΓ±a coladas.

While their prickly exteriors mean the carving options are quite limited, the process isn't too difficult.

How To Make A Pineapple Jack-O-Lantern! 

  • Chop off the top and core it! 

  • Using a sharp paring knife works well to carve it!

  • Use the thorns to track your design. 

  • When you're happy with your spooky face, place a tea light to place in the center and let it glow!

As YouTubers have warned, the pineapple version won't last as long as a pumpkin, but its sweet aroma is sure to smell pretty good.
