There’s nothing I love more than kitschy holiday decorations and cocktail accessories are no exception. What do you think of when you think of Thanksgiving? Pumpkin pie, right? Me too. That’s why I made these adorable mini pumpkin pie drink stirrers for all of the autumnal cocktails I’ve been drinking (specifically this spiced pumpkin pie nog cocktail).
I love making miniature things out of clay. It’s so…therapeutic. These mini pumpkin pies were particularly easy and fun. Here’s how I did it.
What You Need:
Oven-bake Clay (orange, brown or tan, and white)
First I cut out triangles out of orange clay. The easiest way to do this was to use a small, sharp knife to cut a 7cm think piece of clay to a 25cm x 20cm rectangle. Then cut it into a triangle.
Mix some brown clay with a little white to get your desired shade of brown for the pie crust. Roll it into a ball and press it out into a 3cm thick disc. Place the orange triangle onto the disc.
Pull up and flute the clay to create the crust.
Then cut the remaining clay off.
Roll white clay into snake-like shapes and spiral it onto itself to make a dollop of whipped cream.
Next, use a cocktail stir to make a hole on the bottom of the clay pie.
Remove the stick and bake at 275 degrees fahrenheit. Using a little super glue, replace the cocktail stick into the pre-made hole.
And that’s it! Adorable, right? I got carried away and made a bunch of these as gifts. Happy drinking!
