My first attempt:
What you need:
A fake pumpkin or gourd
Yarn--colors of your choosing
LOW TEMP Hot glue gun--Trust me, use the LOW TEMP!
Low Temp glue sticks
What to do:
I started hot gluing the yarn around the stem. For the stem, I hot glued every part of where the yarn attached. When I would put the yarn on the stem and glue, I would just pat it down.
I started the orange part of the pumpkin at the top, but you could start at the bottom. I made little drops of hot glue about every inch or so. Tap and keep gluing. Please use the low temp glue because you WILL get glue on your fingers. Ok...you've been warned now.
