You Will Need: 

Instructions: 

  • Attach your 1/4" x 1/16" disc magnets to the back of each bottle cap 
  • Fill each bottle cap with hot glue to reflect the kind/type of pie you would like to make
  • Paint the hot glue to look like pie filling or crust
  • Let dry completely
  • Decorate your pies with hot glue shapes, beads, pipe cleaners, or make lattice with felt cutouts
    • You can even paint your hot glue shapes or beads to resemble fruit on a pie: blueberry, strawberry, peach - The choice is yours! 
  • Add any finishing touches 

From pumpkin and key lime to berry and pecan, transform your favorite pie flavors into mini decorations, favors, or gifts for grandma. And if you are feeling extra creative, try adding your own flair using glitter, craft putty, yarn, patterned tape, etc.!
