Let's make a turkey platter. You will need some white clay and some red clay. First, flatten the white clay out(not all the way, keep it about as thick as about three quarter's thickness high)

From another piece of white clay make two cylindrical shapes of equal size, and attach them to each end of the white tray for handles.

Add whatever designs you want on there! For me I made two really thin strings of red clay and curled the ends of them, and pressed each one onto either side of the tray.

Make an orange clay ball. Flatten out between your fingers and tuck it into the pie crust. Make little dents at the edges to add to realism. Smooth top. Then, cut out a slice with a knife and put some clay whipped cream on it! If you want to add even more realism, put some tin foil at the bottom of it.

I will be adding more fun harvest foods, so enjoy!

For the bowl of peas just use the cranberry instructions, except make the balls slightly smaller, and greener:)
