HELLO FALL! Let’s take a Make Break and make this beautiful pumpkin pie banner πŸπŸŽƒ

I saw this DIY on Pinterest and of course I just HAD to make it! There’s not many other things that I love more than fall and crafts, so let’s get started! 

The shopping list

  • Four sheets of pumpkin colored scrap booking paper
  • One sheet of tan paper (for the crust)
  • White yarn
  • A fork. The kind you eat with πŸ˜‰
  • A Exacto knife 
  • A safe place to cut paper (I use a self-healing cutting bored for craft projects, but you can use any cutting bored. Unless you want to be wild and cut directly on your table #youdoyou)
  • A hot glue gun. Please DO NOT use white glue for this project. Scrap booking paper gets soggy 

Start off by cutting the pumpkin colored paper “hotdog style” into four inch strips. Cut all four sheets the same 


Next up cut the pumpkin paper strips into tri angles. Make sure to keep each slice the same shape and size, uniform slices will hang nicer when finshed ☺️


Let’s make some whip cream! Yarn Pom Poms are really one of my favorite things to make and they are soooo simple! All you need is scissors, yarn and a fork! Let’s get started! Cut a peice of yarn just two inches in length and lay it across the fork. I wanted to create a smaller Pom Pom so I used a salad fork, for larger Pom Pomd you can use a larger fork or even a salad server! 


Without cutting anymore yarn. Lay the end of the yarn across the length yarn (making an “X”) and start to wrap yarn around the fork (for this particular project I wrapped the yarn 80X). 


Slide the yarn off of the fork and tie the two inch, lengt yarn into a knot. Slide your scissors through the hole and cut gently. 



Trim excess yarn and shape it into a spehere. TA-DA πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» Use this technique whenever you create Pom Poms, it really saves some time!

Hot glue your whip cream Pom Pom onto your pie slice. 


Let’s now work on the crust! Simply cut a half inch or less strip of tan “crust” paper and fold it gently into a “Zig Zag.”



Attach the crust to the top of your pie slice with a gerneraous line of hot glue. After the glue dries, trim the excess paper. 


Repeat this process a few more times or more depending how long you want your banner to be. I attached the pie slices to left over yarn and hung them above our stove 😍


Tomorrow I will be working on a apple pie slice banner too so stayed tuned! I’d love to see how your slices turn out below!!
