Aleene's Super Fabric Adhesive
18" x 12" sheet of tan felt
9" x 12" sheet of red felt
9" x 12" sheet of off-white felt
Felt scraps for toppings (maroon for pepperoni, pink for Canadian bacon, yellow for pineapple)
Black Slick Puffy Paint
Green Slick Puffy Paint
Small amount of pillow stuffing
Step 1: Sketch out a pizza triangle shape on the tan felt. Use a straight edge if desired. Cut it out. Place the pizza triangle on the remaining tan felt and trace around the top edge to form the crust. Make the crust about 1/2 inch wider to allow for stuffing space. Place the pizza triangle on the remaining tan felt and sketch a wider triangle for the backing piece. Cut out the crust piece and the crust backing.
Step 2: Glue the crust piece on the front pizza triangle along the top edge. Wait a bit for the glue to dry and then glue the bottom of the crust leaving space between for stuffing.
Step 3: Use the tan pizza triangle to trace a red felt triangle for the sauce and a slightly smaller off-white felt triangle for the cheese. Glue on the sauce and cheese.
Step 4: Cut out your desired toppings and glue them to the pizza. Use Puffy Paint for other toppings and allow to dry completely.
Step 5: Stuff the crust with pillow stuffing.
Step 6: Flip over the pizza and glue a small loop of ribbon to the edge of the crust for hanging the stocking.
Step 7: Glue along one side of the pizza slice and add the the crust backing. Use clothes pins to secure while the glue dries. Glue along the other side, place the crusting backing, and secure in place with clothe pins. Add a dab of glue to the bottom point, pinch it to close the hole and add a final clothes pin. Wait until the glue dries and remove the clothes pins.
