This craft does require the use of a low-temp glue gun. Adult supervision is advised.
Ingredients: 2 wooden discs, 1 gold fuzzy stick, 20-24 silver sequins, 2 silver fuzzy sticks, 1 white felt sheet, 1 yellow felt sheet, 1 shoelace, and 1 straw.
Step 1. Glue the two wooden discs together.
Step 2 Glue the cut strips of yellow felt in a grid and trim the excess.
Step 3. Glue the scalloped strip of felt to create the “crust”.
Step 4. Cover the edge of the bottom disk using the silver fuzzy stick.
Step 5. Glue the silver sequins over the silver fuzzy stick, overlapping each sequin slightly.
Step 6. Finish with a dollop of “whipped cream” cut from the white felt sheet.
Step 7. Glue two short pieces cut from the straw on the back of your pie.
Step 8. Feed the two ends of the shoelace into the two pieces of straw and pull through.
Step 9. Hold the ends of the shoelace together and wrap a gold fuzzy stick tightly around them to create a “stop” for your tie.
