Pi Day DIY Felt Pizza
What You Need
To get started, download the free template from our blog. Then, gather the following materials: cardboard, cotton or poly-fil, scissors, hot glue, and felt in; tan, cream, red, yellow, maroon, and green.
Creating the Base
1: Print the free template from our blog and cut out the shapes. You should have a circle for the pizza base and the back, and various shapes for the pizza toppings.
2: Using the pizza base template as a guide, trace and cut out a circle from your cardboard. Next, cut your pizza circle. We use cardboard for a sturdy base.
Making the Crust, Sauce & Cheese
3: With your hot glue gun, glue the tan felt to the center of the cardboard, leaving an outer edge for the crust.
4: Glue poly-fil or cotton around the edges to give it some height and drape the tan felt over to create the crust.
5: Apply hot glue to the edges of the back cardboard. Use your fingers to gently mold the felt to create the desired crust shape.
6: Using the base template as a guide, cut out a circle from your desired color of felt to match the size of the cardboard base. This will create a smooth finished back for your pizza.
7: Cut your red felt a little smaller than your circle with a wavy edge to give the effect of pizza sauce, then glue it. Glue it onto the center of the tan felt crust. Remember, it is pizza sauce so it does not need to look perfect.
8: Using the cream-colored felt and the template as a guide, cut out a wavy-edged circle to create the cheese. Glue it onto the top of the pizza sauce.
Making Your Toppings
9: Using the template as a guide, cut out your desired pizza toppings from the various colored felt sheets. Get creative and make pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, and more!
10: Play! Now it’s time to enjoy your felt pizza! Place the toppings on the pizza as desired and let the imaginative play begin.
