This pumpkin pie garland is a great addition to your holiday festivities and it looks good enough to eat! You’ll need: air dry clay, paint, twine, a knife, and 10 or so metal hoops (you can find these in the jewelry section of your local craft store).
Step 1: Roll out a ball of clay. This will eventually be the base of your pie. Roll out two skinny pieces of clay. The larger one will be the pie crust and the smaller one will be the dollop of whipped cream.
Step 2: Flatten the ball of clay with the palm of your hand, the slice off two sides of the circle of clay to create a triangle with one rounded edge.
Step 3: With the tip of your finger or the blunt edge of a knife, waffle the top edge of the larger skinny piece of clay. Remember, this will be the pie crust. Attach it to the rounded end of the pumpkin pie base. It helps if you use a little water to adhere one surface to the other.
Step 4: Swirl the skinniest piece of clay into a circle to look like a dollop of whipped cream. Attach it to the top of the pumpkin pie base.
Step 5: Slide one of the metal hoops into the back side of the pumpkin pie. You’ll attach the garland string to it later on.
Step 6: After the clay has dried a little, paint the crust brown, paint the pumpkin part orange, and the dollop of whipped cream white.
Step 7: After the paint and clay have entirely dried, tie the garland string onto the hoop of each pumpkin pie you’ve created. Now you’re ready to give thanks in style!
