Marshmallows wearing pie for Thanksgiving is the cutest thing ever


Two marshmallow mugs wearing crocheted hats that look like pumpkin pie and cherry pie.

In my house there are a few traditions that make Thanksgiving a fantastic holiday – first, we find a 5k to do as a family no matter where we are celebrating. If we are out of town with family, we find one in the area. If we are at home, we do the one in our hometown. Either way, we all know that we’re getting up early and walking/running for about 3 miles before the eating begins.


Second, it’s all about the pies. I put together the whole traditional Thanksgiving feast with turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes etc. But really, it’s all just a formality until it’s time for dessert. We make a LOT of pies. There have been years when we had more pies than people. We eat pie for dessert after lunch and then we eat it again for dinner that same day. If anyone is still hungry later - you guessed it - more pie. Yes, I make one big meal and then everyone fills up on pie for the rest of the day.


Everyone has their favorite pies, and we tend to have quite a few that get requested year after year. Two of those are pumpkin and cherry pies. So, to decorate my marshmallow mugs for November you best believe there's going to be pie.

Hands holding two pieces of crocheted pie crust lattice onto the top of a marshmallow mug hat that looks like a cherry pie.

Crisscross the lattice pieces on top of the pie hat and hot glue in place. I find it easiest to start with the two long pieces and hot glue them on in just the middle of the lattices.

Then layer on two of the shorter pieces and hot glue those in just their centers. Last, hot glue on just the final two short pieces in the centers and then glue down all the ends.
