HOW TO MAKE FAUX BLUEBERRRY PIE
I started by spray painting my pie dishes with brown spray paint. I usually use Rustoleum in the color Espresso.
Once the spray paint was dry I hot glued some polyfil to the inside of the pie dish. NOTE: You can add some cinnamon or a few drops of oil in with the polyfil to give the pie a nice scent.
Next I cut a piece or muslin fabric 1-inch wider than the size of the top of the pie dish then I added a bead of hot glue around the rim of the pie dish and attached the cut muslin on top by pressing it around the rim to adhere to the hot glue, then trim off the excess muslin.
Next I tore a piece of muslin about 1/2 inch wide to create a “crust”. I then went around the edge in sections, added a bead of hot glue, and attached the muslin “crust”, pleating it as I went around.
Now it’s time to make the pie looked baked, so I sprayed the top with glue, and dusted the top with cinnamon, then I used a paint brush to brush it around and dust some of it off. Then I spray it again with glue to hold the cinnamon in place.
Allow to dry.
Once it’s dry I hot glued a few of the faux blueberries to the center, sprayed the top with spray adhesive again and sprinkled the glitters on top to make it look like sugar then added some more fo the spray adhesive glue on top to hold it in place. I also made sure I got the glitter on the blueberries too.
Finally I stamped a piece or torn muslin with the word blueberry and used a rustic safety pin to attach it to the pie along with a piece or torn homespun fabric.
And that’s it! So cute and easy and something you can easily whip up under 30 minutes!
HOW I GRUNGE MUSLIN
I stain my muslin in coffee to give it more of a primitive/rustic look. To do this, I take 2 quarts warm water plus 1 cup instant coffee in a large bucket and mix it until dissolved.
Next I dip my muslin in the coffee mixture and then ring it out. I do this a few times until I get the desired look. Then I set it aside to dr
I take the left over coffee mixture and pour it into a spray bottle and use that to spray on fabrics to make them look grungy.
Another way to do it is take 2 cups warm water with 1/2 cup of instant coffee, mix it together and pour into a spray bottle. Then I’ll spray it on fabric. Let it absorb for a few minutes then dab it off. I’ll do this a few times until I get the desired look.
