You can just leave the pumpkins plain for table décor, or add someone’s name to the leaf and turn them into a place card.

Supplies (to make 1 pumpkin):

– 1″ Styrofoam Ball (you can find these at the dollar store)

– Cream Tissue Paper (also found at the dollar store)

– Wire Thread

– Pencil

-Hot Glue

– Twig

– Dried Leaf

1. Cut the tissue paper into squares.

2. Start by placing the twig (stem) into the Styrofoam.

3. Wrap the tissue paper around the end of a pencil, put a drop of hot glue on the end and then secure it to the Styrofoam ball. Continue until the ball is covered.

4. Using some thin wire, wrap it around your finger (or a pen) to create a spiral and then wrap it around the stem.

5. And lastly, place the leaf in place.
