Supplies:

Mini-champagne bottle
Miniature Reese's peanutbutter cups (about 50 per pineapple)
Yellow tissue paper
Green tissue paper
Hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
Ribbon
Gift tag 

Directions
1. Start by gathering everything you need. You'll need A LOT of Reese's so make sure stock up beforehand!



2. Cut the yellow tissue paper into small squares, about 1.5 in x 1.5 in. You'll need about 50 for one pineapple.

3. Spread out your yellow squares and hot glue your peanutbutter cups to the squares. You want to glue the narrower base of the cups to the squares so your gift-receiver can easily open the Reese's later.

4. Beginning at the base of your champagne bottle, hot glue on your tissue-paper wrapped peanutbutter cups in even rows. You'll need about 8 cups for each row. When you pick up your peanutbutter cups, gently press the tissue paper around it to create the effect shown. To create a more natural effect, stagger your rows like you're laying out bricks instead of putting cups directly above the one below. Make four rows of peanutbutter cups.



5. Before you start your fifth row, you'll want to make and attach your leaves. Cut 5 or 6 pieces of green tissue paper in long leaf shapes. Hot glue them around the neck of your bottle directly above the fourth row.

6. Glue your fifth and final row of peanutbutter cups on top of the leaves to cover up where they're attached. You'll only need 7 peanutbutter cups for this row, as the bottle has narrowed.

7. Tie a ribbon around your pineapple and attach a fun tag. I listed the one I used as a freebie here
