This cute mini pumpkin decoration is a great craft to make this fall.
You will need:
Take four orange chenille stems and cut each one into four pieces, leaving you with sixteen shorter stems.
Take a green chenille stem and cut a piece off the end, approximately 2.5 inches. Then hold all of the orange stems together, and push the longer green chenille stem into the middle of them. Then use the smaller green stem to wrap around the top of the orange stems as tightly as possible to hold them in place.
Take another green chenille stem and cut about 2.5 inches off of the end. Wrap it around the green chenille stem slightly above the orange ones, creating a loop. Then take the end of one of the orange stems, bend it upwards, and tuck it into the green loop. Continue this with the rest of the orange ends.
Trim the top of the green chenille stem and bend it into a leaf and stalk to make the top of the pumpkin.
