How to Make Decorative Pie Boxes


Once you’ve baked a beautiful pie, it’s nice to have a decorative pie box to finish off your creation. Adding a theme to showcase your creation can be a lot of fun. But many think decorating a pie box is difficult, but with a few tools and a little water proof spray, it’s easy. Here’s how to make decorative pie boxes.

Things You'll Need

  • White pie box
  • Preserve your Memories II Spray
  • Stamps
  • Markers
  • Stickers

Purchase a plain white pie box. Visit your local craft or grocery store and purchase an inexpensive pie box. Make sure to choose a white colored box to make decorating easier.

Waterproof your pie box. Waterproofing your pie box will ensure that your pie doesn’t get soggy if you have to walk through rainy conditions. There is a spray that is created specifically for this use called Preserve your Memories II spray. Spray each side of the box and allow it to dry for an hour.

Determine your theme. Before you begin decorating your box you should determine a theme. This will allow you to choose markers, stickers and stamps that accomplish the desired effect.

Use stamps. Stamps adhere nicely to the waterproof spray to create a nice decoration. Visit your local craft store and purchase a couple stamps that coordinate with your theme.

Use markers. Regular colored markers will adhere nicely to the pie box. Choose your favorite brand of markers and color and decorate all sides of the box.

Use stickers. A nice finishing touch to your decorative pie box is to use a few stickers. If you visit a local stamping or craft store you can choose themed sticker sets.
