• Thanksgiving Pie Garland

    by Beth Watson

    Thanksgiving is all about traditions, family and pie, especially PIE! I can’t ever choose just one type of pie to be my favorite, so for this Thanksgiving Pie garland, I “baked” Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie and Blueberry Pie! Whip up a batch of these yummy to look at pies in just a few hours and keep the kitchen CLEAN!

    Here’s What You Will Need:

    • Kunin® Classicfelt™ 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Cashmere Tan, Sandstone, Olive, Pumpkin Spice, Prickly Purple, Cream and Silver
    • PATTERNS THANKSGIVING PIE GARLAND
    • Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks
    • Pencil; Eraser; Permanent Marker Black; Scissors; Chipboard; 48” length of Twill Tape; Assorted Ribbon Scraps.

    Here’s How to Make it

    Step One:
    Download patterns HERE and print. Cut out patterns with scissors. Trace and cut six Pie Crusts onto Cashmere Tan. Trace and cut two Pie Fillings onto Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Pie), Sandstone (Apple Pie) and Prickly Pear (Blueberry Pie). Trace and cut three Forks onto Silver Felt. Attach the pie fillings to the pie crusts with hot glue.

    TIP: Remember to cut INSIDE the lines for a neat and clean finished project.

    Step Two:
    Measure and cut 18-20 strips of Cashmere Tan ½” wide by 9” long and set 6 aside to use later. Lay out over the Sandstone (Apple Pie) and arrange in a woven pattern to mimic the lattice top on a pie. Attach strips of felt with hot gun at each intersection. Repeat with the second lattice. Lift off and set aside. Cut skinny crescents from Olive Felt apple sections and glue to Sandstone Felt. Attach lattice to pie, flip over and trim off the excess. Attach one of reserved ½” strips to the top edge of each of the Apple Pie pieces with hot glue. Create a ruffled effect by folding the strip as it is being glued.

    Step Three:
    Attach one of reserved ½” strips to the top edge of each of the Blueberry Pie pieces with hot glue. Create a ruffled effect by folding the strip as it is being glued. Trace two pie crusts from Cashmere Tan and cut approximate 1/8” inside the lines to create a top pie crust. Fold pie crust vertically and cut a slit with scissors. Repeat with a second slit. Glue top pie crusts to Prickly Purple (Blueberry Pie) slices.

    Step Four:
    Glue Pumpkin Spice pie filling to pie crust with hot glue. Attach one of reserved ½” strips to the top edge of each of the Pumpkin Pie pieces with hot glue. Create a ruffled effect by folding the strip as it is being glued. Cut six random scalloped cloud shapes – two large, two medium and 2 small. Make two stacks, largest to smallest, attaching each layer with hot glue. Scrunch as the glue cools to create dimension. Attach Whipped Cream to center of Pumpkin Pie slices.

    Step Five:
    Hot glue each slice of pie to the twill tape, leaving 2” in between and 12” at each end. Attach three forks. Tie ribbon scraps in between the slices of pie.
