Pineapple Ribbon Lei

This is a lei kit purchased from Chris Tanizawa at It was purchased long ago and finally got completed. For FREE lei making classes in Union City, California. She has various lei kits for purchase and has a schedule for her classes but may not have this specific lei style. This particular lei finishes 42" long. Honestly, it was quick to make since the "pineapples" were one continuous strip of ribbon.
In this photo, you can see the pineapple does have another orange sheer layer of ribbon toward the inside.
A even more closer look: the green ribbon is both satin and sheer:
