thank you for "staying tuned"
for the follow-up to my
previous post here.
Today I'm showing you my
Pumpkin Pie Thanksgiving Tree Ornaments.
I spent a whole dollar for a 6 pack of 5 inch foil pie tins
similar to these (mine weren't the deep kind,
nor did they come with lids).
I scoured our local super-center fabrics section and
decided on two fabrics that I
thought came close in color to pumpkin pie and
I like the little pattern on the pumpkin fabric,
it gives it some interest.
I traced around the foil tin and cut it
a bit smaller in dimension.
I scrunched up a single plastic shopping bag
you know the ones...
I have a seemingly endless supply of them...
and why waste fiber-fil when you can use
something that costs nothing.
Then ran a line of hot glue around the foil
tin and laid the "pumpkin" fabric in place.
Now for the crust.
After some trial and error, I found this to be
the easiest (and maybe the laziest, because
there was no sewing involved).
Nevertheless, I cut a long narrow piece of
the pie crust colored fabric.
Twist two fuzzy stick pipe cleaners together
and roll them up into the fabric.
Shaped it into a long zig zag
and hot glue it around the edge of the foil tin.
There, all finished.
Mmmm.... I'm getting hungry already,
I can't wait for that Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.
Why do we only make it once a year????
Check back soon,
I'll show you the Decorated Thanksgiving Tree
in my next post.
And I've added a little extra something
to this particular tree.
