Here’s what you need to get started:
Remove the paper tag from the clay pot. Base coat the base of the clay pot with pumpkin orange acrylic craft paint. Let paint dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Base coat the rim and inside of the clay pot with tan acrylic craft paint. Let paint dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Measure two rectangles that are ½” by 12” on the tan craft felt with a black marker. Cut out the rectangle shaped strips with scissors, cutting inside the black lines. You could also use tan craft foam instead of felt.
Attach the tan felt pie crust strip to the rim of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks. Create the fluted pie crust edge, by folding and gluing the strips of tan felt back and forth. Where the first strip ends glue the second strip on and continue the ruffles.
You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Add a face to the pumpkin pie by attaching two wiggle eyes with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser in pink acrylic craft paint and dotting on either side of the face.
Draw a smiling mouth from cheek to cheek with a permanent black marker.
Glue a white tinsel pom pom to the center of the pumpkin pie’s face to create a whipped cream nose. Fill with paper shreds and yummy Fall treats.
This is a fun activity to create with the kiddos in just about 30 minutes with limited supplies. The perfect size for a tiered tray display.
