Supplies
Paint brush
Watercolor paints (tan or brown color)
Scissors
Glue stick
Twine or string
Glue gun and glue sticks
Directions

Step 1: MAKE THE CRUST
Use watercolor paints to tan the rims of a few Chinet Classic White dinner plates. Let dry.

 

Step 2: CREATE THE PIE
Print the pie fillings templates. There is pumpkin, cherry, berry, and apple fillings to choose from, but you will only need to select 3 flavors. Pick your favorites and cut out the circles. Use a glue stick to attach a pie filling to the center of each dried plate.

 

Step 3: CUT THE PIE
Slice each disposable plate “pie” into eight slices. To help get even slices, first cut the plate in half, then cut each half in half, then cut each piece in half one more time.

 

Step 4: ADD THE WHIPPED CREAM
Glue on half of a cotton ball to each of the orange pumpkin slices to look like a dollop of whipped cream.

 

Step 5: ASSEMBLE THE BANNER
Using a hot glue gun, attach your pie slices to twine at your desired length. Run a bead of glue along the backside of the long “crust” edge and carefully place onto the twine. Evenly space the slices and be sure to alternate between the flavors of pie.

 

If you have extra slices, use them as decorative pennants with this free “Give Thanks” banner, shown here
