Weave second set of strips into the first using an over under method, to create a lattice design.

Using a small dollop of felt glue join the strips together where they meet, work slowly to avoid mistakes. Use the smallest amount of glue possible,  too much glue may make your felt tough to sew through.

Please note:  DO NOT GLUE  LATTICE TO RED PIE FACE, PIE TOP IS ONLY THERE TO JUDGE LATTICE PLACEMENT.

Your lattice will look like this when completed.

Trace your foam wedge shapes onto red felt.

If you aren’t using American Felt and Craft’s pre-cut foam pie wedges you can cut another 8 inch circle from paper and divide it into 6 sections and cut down the sides of the triangles but not through the center so you can trace the wedge shape but still have an intact paper circle for use in an upcoming step, as shown below or you can use the wedge template above.

Mark out spots where you will place your cherriCopyright American Felt and Craft cherry pie step9 DIY tutoriales, you may want to place lattice over to assist in selecting the areas you want to place the cherries, you’ll want to use about 1/2 of your cherries.

To create your cherries carefully cut all wool felt balls into halves.

Using small amount of felt glue, glue cherries into place, wait for them to dry about 15 minutes and stitch them down securely, they may be choking hazard for small children so you want them to be extremely secure. Repeat this process with the 6 side pieces.

      The pie uses felt balls but I assume your trying to make just the fruit. Cherries are easy to make! You can buy the premade cherries here, or buy the felt balls and string them yourself here or you can make them from scratch using red wool roving available here. Hope this helps!
