Thanksgiving is all about traditions, family, and pie, especially PIE! Instead of choosing just one type of pie for this DIY Thanksgiving Pie Banner, let's “bake” up a Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, and Blueberry Pie! Whip up a batch of these yummy “to look at” pies from easy-to-use Kunin Felt and keep the kitchen CLEAN! Free printable patterns are included below to make this project quick and easy to complete in about an hour.

Here’s how to make a Thanksgiving Pie Banner from Felt:
Download and print DIY THANKSGIVING PIE BANNER PATTERNS at the bottom of this post ⇓. Cut out patterns with scissors. If making quite a few banners, for durability, trace and cut paper patterns onto the chipboard and then cut them out again. Trace or pin crust pattern onto Cashmere Tan and cut out six times. Trace and cut two Pie Fillings onto Pumpkin Spice (Pumpkin Pie), Sandstone (Apple Pie), and Prickly Pear (Blueberry Pie). Onto Silver Felt, trace, and cut three Forks. Attach the pie fillings to the pie crusts with the glue gun. TIP: Remember to cut INSIDE the lines for a neat and clean finished project.
Measure and cut 18-20 strips of Cashmere Tan 4” wide by 9” long and set 9-10 aside to use on the second piece of apple pie. Layout over the Sandstone (Apple Pie) and arrange in a woven pattern to mimic the lattice top on a pie. Attach strips of felt with a glue gun at each intersection. Repeat with the second lattice. Lift off and set aside. Cut skinny crescents from Olive Felt to mimic apple sections and glue them to Sandstone Felt. Attach the lattice to the pie, flip it over, and trim off the excess.
Trace two pie crusts from Cashmere Tan and cut approximately 1/8” inside the lines to create a top pie crust. Fold the pie crust vertically and cut a slit with scissors. Repeat with a second slit. Glue top pie crusts to Prickly Purple (Blueberry Pie) slices.
Glue Pumpkin Spice pie filling to the pie crust with a glue gun. Cut six random scalloped cloud shapes – two large, two medium, and 2 small. Make two stacks, largest to smallest, attaching each layer with a glue gun. Scrunch as the glue cools to create dimension. Attach Whipped Cream to the center of the Pumpkin Pie slices.
Measure and cut six strips of Cashmere Tan Kunin Felt that are 1/2″ wide by 12″ long. One edge straight and one edge wavy. For the decorative edge of the pie crust, attach the wavy ½” strips to the top edge of each of the six pie pieces with hot glue, creating a ruffled effect by folding the strip as it is being glued.
Pin or trace the fork pattern onto Silver Grey Kunin Felt, and then cut out with scissors. Repeat twice to create three forks total.
To finish the DIY Thanksgiving Pie Banner, adhere each slice of pie to the ribbon with a glue gun and glue sticks, leaving 2” in between and 12” at each end. Attach three forks. Tie ribbon scraps in between the slices of pie.
