Sure, pulling out the sharpest (and scariest) knife you own to carve a face into a pumpkin is the tried-and-truest of All Hallows’ Eve traditions. But if you start poking around Pinterest’s 58 million Halloween-related boards, you’re bound stumble across a novel, tropical take on the classic decoration: pineapple jack-o-lanterns.

According to the internet hub for all things DIY, the searches for this spook-ified fruit are up almost 50 percent since last year. Meaning that, while yes, everyone’s clamoring for PSLs and snuggly PJs, they’re still, *ahem*, pining for sunny day snacks. And who can blame them? Unlike pumpkin guts (which have little to no noshing potential), the inside of a pineapple yields sweet, sweet fruit that you can freeze for future smoothies or cocktail hours.

“Scooping out the inside can be a little tricky. Cutting the center out in quarters definitely helps, but don’t worry about getting a little messy, that just means you’ll have extra juice in your cocktail,” says Ella Dove, recipe developer and Well+Good video producer. When you’re ready to pull out your cutting board and get down to business, follow the steps below.

Scroll down to learn how to DIY your very own Pinterest-perfect Halloween decoration.

Step 1: Cut off the top of your pineapple.

Step 2: Use your knife to cut a circular hole in the interior of the fruit.

Step 3: Cut the sphere into wedges that you can easily remove. 

Step 4: Scoop out any remaining flesh with a spoon.

Phew. Now your pineapple’s ready for its features.
