Step 1:

Remove the labels from the vases. Start with the large vase and flip it upside down. Put hot glue at the center of the bottom of the vase and attach the end of the jute cord. Wrap it around the pumpkin 5 times in different directions to make 6 sections. Make sure to glue the jute cord to the same area in the center for each wrap.

Step 2:

Create the pumpkin stem using the same jute cord. Start in the middle where all of them are crossed in the middle and wrap it around in a circle. Secure it in place using hot glue then start making the stem by gluing it around until you have your preferred height. Once you are happy with the length of the stem, put hot glue in the center and tuck the cut end. Move the sections around to make the sections evenly spaced. Use some hot glue to secure them in place. Repeat the same process with the smaller vase.

Step 3:

This step is optional. Take the lighter and burn off the fuzzy pieces of the jute. Be careful not to burn yourself.

Step 4:

Cut the leaves from the stems and glue two of them in different sizes to the sides of the stems. Make the curly tendrils from the wired jute cord by wrapping it around a pencil and gluing it in place.
