These teeny tiny pies are so cute!

When I saw someone with a mini bottle cap pie I knew I needed to create some of my own. Attached to a hair clip they are a great accessory for Pi Day!

Step 1: Materials

You'll need:

  • Bottle caps - you can buy bottle caps from home brewing suppliers or use clean recycled ones.
  • Tan coloured craft felt
  • Seed beads in red and blue (size 10 royal blue beads for blueberries and a mix of red beads for strawberry-raspberry)
  • Glue - I used clear gel tacky glue to glue together the pies and a hot glue gun for the final step
  • Magnets or hair clip (optional)

Step 2: Cut Felt

Trace the bottle caps onto the felt.

Cut out the circles, these will form the crust.

If you would like a pie that is missing a slice, cut a triangular section out of the felt.

Step 3: Glue

Glue the felt circles into the bottle caps.

Remove the plastic bit first if you are making a pie with a missing slice (you can lift the edge with the tip of your scissors and peel it back).

Add a generous dollop of glue to the inside of the felt crust and then pour on the seed beads. You can use a toothpick to spread the glue and move the beads around until you are happy with the placement.

Step 4: Add the Lattice Crust

Cut some very thin strips of felt.

Glue them to the top of the pie, over the beads, to make the lattice top.

Step 5: Finish

Your pies are done!

Glue them to a hair clip or add little button magnets to the back to decorate your fridge.
