What you need:
  • bottle cap (Unused and flattened type is the best.  You can find them at craft stores, Amazon, or on Etsy.  You can also look at stores that cater to home brewing.)
  • beige/crust colored polymer clay
  • orange/pie colored polymer clay  (I mixed orange, brown, and gold to get a color I liked.  I have also seen people mix in real pumpkin pie spices to make it look more realistic!)
  • white for the whipped cream
  • needle tool or something to crimp the edges of the crust
  • liquid polymer clay to strengthen bond between clay pieces

Step 1:

Picture of
As I mentioned before, I added some brown to my orange to get a more realistic pumpkin color.

Step 2:

Picture of
I still wasn't happy with the color, so I added some gold too.

Step 3:

Picture of
I flattened the clay, then used a 1 1/4 inch circle cutter to cut a piece of beige and orange.  I used a tiny, about 1/4 inch, circle cutter to cut a piece of white to use for the whipped cream.

Step 4:

Picture of
Center and place the piece of beige/crust colored clay in the bottle cap.  I added some liquid polymer clay between the two to secure the bond.

Step 5:

Picture of
Roll the orange/pumpkin colored clay in a ball.

Step 6:

Picture of
Place the orange ball in the center of the beige piece of clay.

Step 7:

Picture of
Press and flatten the orange clay ball.

Step 8:

Picture of
Press the side of the needle tool in increments around the pie to crimp the edges of the crust.

Step 9:

Picture of
Try not to indent the orange portion of the pie.

Step 10:

Picture of
Roll the white clay into a ball.

Step 11:

Picture of
Pinch the top of the white ball to form a teardrop shape.

Step 12:

Picture of
Add a drop of liquid polymer clay to the center of the pie.

Step 13:

Picture of
Place the white clay in the center of the pie with the pointed side up and squishing it down a tiny bit.

Step 14:

Picture of
Bake according to clay directions.

And...your pies are finished!

You can use them as festive hair bow centers, to decorate napkin rings, as magnets, or even glue on a bail to create a pendant!
