Make It Monday! Cherry Hand Pies! Happy Columbus Day & Canadian Thanksgiving!

Karen here and it is Thanksgiving Monday here in Canada. Popular where I live are hand pies. Hand Pies are small pies you can hold in your hand and are some of the most delicious pies around! We even have a food truck that sells only Hand Pies!
Here is how you can easily make doll sized hand pies!
To make your own you will need:
-Tan or Light brown Fun foam
- Small Red Pompoms
-Low temp glue gun and glue sticks

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and plug in your glue gun. Use your ruler to cut out 4 1 inch by 2 inch pieces of fun foam.
Step 2- Use your scissors to cut 2 slits in the fun foam that look like air holes for your hand pie.

Step 3- Add two dabs of glue on the other piece of fun foam and press the pompoms into place
Step 4- Place the piece of fun foam with the slits over the top of the pom poms and run a line of glue down one side. Carefully press and hold it into place until it is set or dry.
Step 5- Add another line of glue on the other side and press the other side closed. Press and hold until set.
Step 6- *Optionally you can add glue at the ends of the hand pies but I found mine held tight with out it. Repeat steps 1-6 on your remaining fun foam to create the other hand pie.

These little pies will fit nicely in your dolls hand and look great on a dolly plate too!
