DIY: Do-It-Yourself Spongebob Pineapple House
Aquarium Decoration Part 2

Now that you have collected the supplies, we are going to begin the process of putting it together.
First you want to take your styrofoam/polystyrene sheet and cut it up into equal parts. Mine came out a little uneven but that is ok; they don't have to be exact. Make sure to cut the pieces bigger than your anticipated width and length. By cutting it bigger, you give yourself some room for error.

The small styrofoam at the top in the picture on the left will be used later for the pineapple leaves. (those pieces are leftover pieces I had from cutting my styrofoam sheet.


Use as many sheets as you wish to also create the desired height for the pineapple. In my example I bought a thick piece of styrofoam up so that I would easily create the hieght that I wanted without spending too much time "gluing" lots of thin layers together.

Once the pieces are cut and ready to go, you will need to "glue" the styrofoam pieces to each other with the GE silicone

1.Put a good amount  of silicone onto the pieces so that they adhere the styrofoam pieces together solidly.
After finishing the previous step, you will need to let the pieces sit overnight and dry.



 


Put something of a good weight on top of the styrofoam pieces so that the pieces will adhere to each other closely.


Look for Part 3 of DIY: Do-It-Yourself Spongebob Squarepants Aquarium Decorations. :)
