Pineapple cutout corkboard

July 20, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff


We are getting close to back to school season. I know, you dont want to hear it butttt its better to be prepared! Plus, what’s better than DIY back to school crafts? They are original and fun! Today I am showing you guys how to make the cutest pineapple cutout cork board. This is perfect for your locker, dorm room or at home office.

Here is what you will need:

  1. Cork board
  2. razor blade
  3. sharpie
  4. craft paints
  5. paper to draw your pineapple on to use as a stencil

Begin by sketching out the pineapple shape you want before cutting into your cork board. I went for a more geometric theme. Place the stencil on the cork board and trace all the way around it with a razor blade.

Now, you should have a complete duplicate of the pineapple stencil with the cork board.

Go ahead and get your sharpie ready for the next step!

Finish drawing in the shape of crown of the pineapple. You will need to see the difference between the body and crown of the fruit when painting it.

Pick your paints, and get started on the pineapple crown. I went with a mint green color.

As you can see, I used my razor to cut out 3 different sized triangles to use as stamps with the leftover cork board scraps. I dipped these is selected colors and stamped them all over the body of the pineapple.

I filled up the whole pineapple with fun colored triangles to stick to the geometric theme!

All done! How cute is this?? I’m LOVING mine! Hang in your locker, at your desk or in your dorm room. It’s perfect for reminders, pictures and cute notes!

Pura Vida x CRSSD Fest

February 24, 2015 — by Griffin Thall

We linked up with our friends at Brightside to curate three massive playlists to get you prepped and ready for CRSSD Fest. San Diego, stand up, because a handful of the biggest names in house, techno, disco, and indie-electronic music will be gracing the Waterfront Park on March 14 & 15.

Ocean View Live Stage

This bad boy will be home to all of your live shows over the weekend. I personally can’t imagine a more perfect world, where acts like Empire of the Sun, Chromeo, Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons, and Lido all share the same stage. This one’s prepped to bring the house down, so get acquainted with some of the tracks you’re likely to hear played out.

The Palms Stage

Get all of your house, future and tropical vibes from The Palms stage. With heavy hitters like Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones going up to bat with newcomers like SNBRN and Thomas Jack, this stage will be going bananas (and pineapples) all weekend long.

City Steps Stage

All things techno and hard-hitting house come to play at the City Steps stage. Legends such as Maceo Plex, Pete Tong, a few Dirtybirds and a blistering bunch of dancefloor killers will be putting four to the floor for 48-hours. If you’re a sunglass-wearing, low-light lurking techno junkie, we probably won’t see you at any other stage all weekend.

We hope you enjoy — maybe learn a thing or two — from these playlists brought to you by Brightside and Pura Vida. Hope to see you all at CRSSD Fest, grab your tickets below.
