DIY Pumpkin Pie Topper

DIY Pumpkin Pie Topper- Paint the Gown Red

Thanksgiving is next week! Say what?! I couldn’t tell you where the time went, but I’m also not complaining about it. I absolutely love this time of year! The festivities, decorations, food...even my crazy family. It’s true. The weather finally cooled down and I couldn’t be happier sitting here in a cozy sweater and fuzzy socks, wrapped up in a blanket. The kitties have been especially snuggly too. It’s wonderful. As turkey day draws near, it’s time to finalize your table. Get that tablecloth ironed, figure out what centerpieces to use, dust of the stemware...But perhaps the most important preparation to do this week is is this- figure out what will top that famous pumpkin pie! What? You’ve never made a Thanksgiving pie topper before? Don’t worry! I’m here to help. Why not top a pie, with pie!? This DIY pie slice thankful banner is easy to make and sure to be the perfect finishing touch to your thanksgiving table. Dig in!
