I’ve always been fond of Thanksgiving. My mom hosts Thanksgiving most years. The food is always the highlight of the gathering. All of the relatives bring a dish and it’s one big pot luck.

When, I was still living at home, my grandma, who was in much better health at that time, would bring the majority of the desserts. Sometimes cookies, sometimes cake, but always pie. I love homemade pie. Cherry being my all time favorite. However, Thanksgiving isn’t really Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie was always there. Pumpkin pie and these warm holiday memories are the inspiration behind this craft.

Finally, I glued a cotton ball to each piece to represent a dollop of whipped cream.
